Easter holidays


Easter holidays are here. In fact, as my youngest son is doing his GCSEs this year, I am hoping that it will be more of a working holiday (we live in hope ;)). Eldest is due home from uni on Monday and he wants/needs to earn some money so he's got a job at a local cafe. I'm preparing for an Easter sale next Sunday, so I've been getting some things ready for that today.



I've only taken a small stall, so I'm trying to be really selective about the things I'm taking along. 



Patchwork pieces are always popular.


Some old books...



On my stall, there'll be some small pieces of furniture, shelves, hooks, tins, crochet blankets and china. Plus a few flowers .. 



This is where I'll be...the village hall, Barnwell, nr Oundle. Sunday April 13, 1pm onwards.





Back soon.

    1. Thank you! Yes, I am trying to paint eggs at the moment. I love old bird books with the illustrations of eggs inside. I have also bought blue bantam eggs from the market to paint, but it's quite tricky!

    1. Hi Karen, it rained yesterday but it's cold and sunny today. Hope you have a good Easter. I haven't seen any bluebells yet but my tulips are flowering. I planted about 50 bulbs late on in the autumn and they're so pretty.

  8. Love the pretty watercolour picture you have used for your header. Did you paint it or is it from the book? Hope you have a good sale and a lovely Easter. My daughter is home from uni too revising and my other daughter is busy working to finish her coursework for college. My son is working hard at gaming and staying up all night! I did remind him he has a History project to finish but no response yet!

  9. Hi Jacqui, you've made my day by asking me if the header is from a book. I did paint it myself.
    Ha, your description of your son sounds familiar...

  10. Oh I wish I lived closer by, so that I could come and see your stall. You have some beautiful things on display. I like those old pillowcases. So pretty! Wishing you lots of good luck and a Happy Easter holiday!
