Today my lovely friend and the other half of OhSoVintage got married in Gretna Green. I so wish I could have been there with her to share her joy but it was to be a very low key affair with just her two children, their partners and her grandaughter. She and her husband originally thought it would be fun to elope and not tell anyone till after the wedding but their secret got leaked! All her friends and the rest of her family will be celebrating with a BIG party when they return. We have a lot of fun running the business together and I wish her and her new husband many, many years of happiness together. This is a photo I took of her last year at a Michaelmas fayre at which we had a stall. We were going to do it again this year but she'll be on her honeymoon - how inconsiderate is that?!
I have just taken a photo of my 'den' which used to be my daughter's bedroom. I love to come here and sew, listen to the radio or just potter looking at my stash of linens, lace and materials. Here it is (looking tidier than usual!).
Our next book we have to read for my reading group is 'The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie' and I cannot find it in any shops, would you believe? How can it be that two huge Waterstones and two W H Smith's don't have it in stock? I know I could go to the library but I am funny about books, I like to have a brand new copy that no-one else has read, I just love the smell of the new paper - one of my foibles I guess.
