a bit later than intended

oops! After a super whirlwind of a weekend, this second little box has only just made it into my shop, here. Our Saturday morning was spent cleaning/tidying the house and garden in preparation for a total of nine people for dinner. It was such a gorgeous day that we put our dining table outside in the garden, and I used our colourful tablecloth we bought in Thailand and added some glasses of flowers. We all had a lovely afternoon, so much so that once everyone had gone and everything was tidied (again) and put back in its rightful place I had no energy left and fell asleep on the sofa. But I couldn't have much of a lie-in on sunday as Holly and I went to see my sister for the day. I had to see her wonderful new workshop in person, and yes, it truely is wonderful. I even managed to buy some more felt, and we had a lovely lunch followed by ice-cream on the beach. Here is Holly drawing on the stones, we found lots of chalk on the beach among the rocks : )

Hey Harriet said...

Your outdoor table setting looks wonderful and so inviting. There's something so special about dining outside. And icecream by the beach is a perfect example of that! :D
