Handmade at Home

Last weekend was the second installment of Handmade at Home.
This year I held the event on two different dates as the general concensus from last year was that an earlier date would be good for those who are super organised with their Christmas shopping!
So these are the pictures from October.

The dining room was filled with tables laden with goodies

Linda had a lovely collection of beautiful glass decorations

The Deckchair collection of plates and coasters, squashed bottles and jewellery

Pushpa's beautiful paintings and cards were a big hit.  Have a look at her website for more pictures of her work.

She also paints cats, using her own cat as a model in the picture on the left.

This is no model though - Missy found the catnip and made herself at home!
Ruth's bags added a delightful splash of colour along with her gorgeous quilts which I sadly did not get a photograph of.

For some it was just too much and a siesta had to be had!

And then it was December!
Sheena's jewellery, my favourite colours green and pink together 

And blues and purples and sparkes!

Sue from Rustic Wreaths brought a delightful collection of wreaths and natural decorations which made my house look so beautiful and festive I was quite loathed to sell them! 

The flash went off on this photo but it has shown up the sparkly berries brilliantly.

So this is how I am going to have to decorate my fireplace now!
I could have taken a lot more pictures on both Handmade events but was busy with customers which is the best distraction possible!
Not many markets and events now before the big day, so I am just finishing up making Christmas stock and finalising orders.
Hope you are all keeping well and warm.
Take care

Thank you for your comments, I do read them all and sometimes I even reply, now that I have figured out how to! Thanks again, take care x
