the fun of the fair...

...so this picture is nothing ground breaking, it was just snapped casually on my phone without any set up or great thought however to me today it means so much. 

Today was the Somers Arts Fair and whilst the event itself was fantastic on so many levels the one thing that stood out above all (even the yummy wine) was the fabulous sense of community that was experienced.

The 6 hours of music, activities, art admiring (and some selling) went by so fast as we were talking, catching up with friends old and new and having so much fun that before we knew it the day had been run. 

This pic is of my little one and her bestie who are growing up in a community I am thrilled to call home.

Somers Arts Fair...

...I may have completely forgotten to mention that this weekend is the Somers Arts Fair - Sunday the 28th - 10am to 4pm - Somers Primary School, Camp Hill Rd. Somers. 

I have entered 3 pieces for the main exhibition and can't wait to walk into the hall on Sunday morning to see the works from all of the participating artists. Pop along for a great family day out and bring along some sunshine!

...ok so it's not what they are really called but after years of working with Echiums in the nursery I gave them this name as when propagating them on even a slightly warm day they would make my skin go crazy. 

Although I am in no hurry to propagate them again any time soon I do love the gorgeous flowers that they are presenting us with right now. 

These ones were captured on a quick trip to Heronswood this morning.

good times...

 It's no secret that I love to play hostess, I gain much enjoyment from the planning and execution of the simplest of get-togethers and look for any excuse for throwing one together.

Yesterday saw the transformation of our place to a sea of pink for an afternoon tea fundraiser for Breast Cancer Awareness. Pink food, pink flowers and of course pink bubbly were the order of the day together with plenty of laughter, conversation and relaxation. 

Thanks for a great day ladies xx

come back sunshine...

I'm sure it was out at some stage this week, I just wish it would come back again soon.  

With a little nod to the coming warmer weather I have had a play around at home with some of my favorite bits and pieces, moving a few things around and hope that it may just encourage back the beach visiting weather.

That little glass jar between the in middle there, well it houses my one and only piece of found sea-glass  I am hoping to add a few more pieces to it soon. 

A quick trip to Red Hill Market this morning (I will back there with a stall next month) and I just had to pick up this little Short Headed Seashore watercolour by Lyn Lewis - the perfect friend for our much loved Weedy Sea-Dragon by the same artist.
