Books, a Bag and Some News for a Rainy Day

It seems Summer has temporarily taken a break and although all this rain is very good for the garden and allotment, I rather wish it would stop now. So instead of our usual trip to the market, we've spent the morning carefully making herbed cheese scones and creating a tent in the dining room.

I thought you might like to see some of the other finds from the weekend..

Less of this...



And much more of this...



And this..





A couple more Puffins



And a useful oilskin bag



In other news, I am going to be opening a little store shortly, I spent a long time yesterday sorting and cleaning up stock and I'll also be stocking a few things I have made. It's exciting, it's new, and it's a whole lot more work before I can show you. But whoo! I hope you're going to like it!

How exciting! Can't wait to see your store. The 'Seasons' book looks really familiar. I seem to remember it being in my class at primary school! Lets hope for the sunshine tomorrow.

How very exciting! Will it be a real store or a virtual one? or both!
