See you on Saturday?

I know I have been very blog-silent of late. I hope you all understand. If you're a last-minute person like me, then you will know how the run-up to Christmas can get very busy with making. I have had my head down for the last few weeks. But I thought it was about time I popped by the blog and said hello, in the hope that you won't forget who I am completely.

Hmm, I hear you say, a case of bad planning, surely? Yes, I know perfectly well that if you want to sell Christmas cards, you're supposed to have them all ready at Easter, but I have yet to master that sort of timetable. Instead, this week has found me busy making cards, magnet packs and other goodies as well as sorting through mountains of vintage china, and oceans of old dolls, getting ready for the Vintage and Handmade Fair on Saturday.

The teaset (top) will be coming along, and I will also be taking my charming old dolls' heads like this one, and this box of kitschy vintage pom-pom pets. (I can't actually identify all the animals...) And so much other stuff that I'm thinking of getting a team of porters to carry it all.

Hope to see you there?

Hi Elaine - yes, I will be there! I think our tables are opposite each other in the main hall? It will be good to meet you...and lets hope this awful wet weather improves before Saturday.

Good luck with your final preparations,

I do wish this fair was closer - the more I read and see about it the more I want to come :(

Good luck and have a great day.

I too wish the Fair was nearer to where I live :(

Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday.

The holidays always pop up faster than you expect! It must be hard to work so far ahead. Love the pom pets, it's funny that they're not all identifiable!

hi Elaine, it was good to meet you both we obviously like the same sort of bizzare kitsch stuff. I love your work! Those dollies like strange robots are brilliant and weird, l love Julie Arkell's work, do you know it? yours has the same lovely semi sinister look about it. I will pop in again soon to see what you are up to. Jane x
