The thought of de- cluttering was daunting but once we cracked on with it we cleared a lot of space that was previously wasted, so I'm so glad we did (Had help from good friends!) Amazing how the more space you have the more you fill it !
Stall holders sold their wears on the preview evening,and I was rather worried it was too rustic?? Getting a new floor, painting the walls within a week wasn't an option!
Stupidly I forgot to take pictures on the night! Dashing about I totally forgot and I'm cross with myself!!
What a pretty fairy on Betty and Violet's stall
Check out her blog Betty and Violet.
The Washerwoman was there too . I brought my friend a nativity Mary from her as a thank you for all his help this week.
Vintage Treasures had a stand too -Carol always displays her pieces so beautifully-hard to resist!
What a lovely way to Christmas shop!
The Christmas preview was a great evening. A big 'Thank you' to all that ventured out. I always appreciate folk coming out on a dark Winters eve to visit us.
I love getting it ready for an event but very tired now afterwards!
I almost feel Iv done Christmas now but know its just the beginning!
So big 'Thank you' all helpers those who helped prepare and those who support a small business by shopping here!

Work is progressing on the barn-it has really made us clear the space. Amazing what things we hold onto! The more space you have the more you fill it. We can plot and plan now all the things we could do with the space (if we had the money, that is!)

The last venue was in a crowded small venue-this time it was to be the impressive Albert Hall. I have never been before, neither has my other half (all the bands we saw over the many years have been crowded small venues, it was our courtship and we loved it- pre children, pre getting older!)
Poppy loves this band too, so we took her to her first gig. Flynn couldn't be persuaded!
Exciting to see all generations fill such an impressive building.
They didn't disappoint- the vocals were totally amazing, hairs on the back off your neck and brought tears to my eyes, especially when she sang the song she co wrote to 'Gladiator'
They returned for 3 on cores! The cheering, floor stomping - Didn't want it to end!
We had a lovely time the next day, looking at shops and visiting the V&A - amazing cafe, yummy cakes!
Lovely to get away , for a short while.
On our return, Flynn had made us all Spaghetti and brownies and tidied the house! ( He stayed with his Grandad) We were touched- perhaps I should go away more often? His turn to go and see the new Bond film tonight!
