Last Saturday I went to a really enjoyable furniture painting class at Edie's in Shrewsbury.
I took daughter M and friend T with me and we had a great time beside the River Severn learning how to create hand painted items of recycled furniture.
It was a beautiful sunny day, lovely venue with really helpful tuition from Mel and spent with excellent company.
T painted a child's chair with a little flower fairy picture for her grand daughter, M painted a lovely little mirror with a sea-side design for her spare room and I re-vamped my CD shelf.
It was a relaxing, very satisfying day and I can recommend it to anyone who fancies upcycling an item or two.
Yesterday was another brilliant day spent in the company of M. We have such a lot in common and had a good giggle as we set up our stall at the Montgomery Craft fair.
We were well supported by our friends, some of whom had travelled from Shrewsbury to enjoy the delights of shopping and lunch in the pretty little town. Thanks to them for making the effort and supporting us and thanks to Tina for popping over from her shop Indigo Moon and purchasing items from M.
It was rather quiet after lunch and all the stall holders packed up and went home early, which was a shame.
Nevertheless, we sold quite a lot, so Sisters Crafty Creations and Tilly Tea Dance now need to re-stock the shelves!!
Here are a few of the items that M still has on sale......
If anything catches your eye and you think you might like to get a few early Christmas presents sorted, then just email me - firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send details/prices etc..

So two super Saturdays. The only thing that could have made them better would have been Wipso's company. She has been a bit pre-occupied - as you all know, but things are looking up, so hopefully she will be free to join in with our next chill out Saturday!!
