Strawberry Fayre And Even More Peg Bags

Me and my neighbour had a stall today at the Annual Strawberry Fayre. I don't get much time to make stock, but after the success of my recent peg bags, I made a few extra ones to hang on the stall.

Lucky Black Cat


Green Beach Hut

Pink Beach Hut

Mauve Cat

The Pink Beach Hut sold has soon as we had set up the stall, to the stall holder next to us.  And then the Camper Van, Green Beach Hut and the Butterfly!  I would have been chuffed to sell 1, so was over the moon to sell 4!

I also sold some other bits and pieces including a needle case, Hanging Heart with a tilda-esq bunny on it and a felt birdie.  I never seem to sell much at these fayres, but I did almost quite well today!

My neighbour sells hand made Jewellery and did very well as usual.

Here's a picture of my half of the stall.

Despite the rain and it drizzled and poured over the afternoon, it was overall, a successful afternoon.

A Ruby Wedding Gift

It was my very good friend and (Bon Jovi) Tour Buddy's Ruby Wedding Anniversary last weekend, and I decided to take her some flowers!

I bought a plain glass vase from Ikea, and etched it with some Amour Etching Cream.  Using my Silhouette SD to cut out a stencil from vinyl, it was quite tricky applying it to the curved surface, but I managed.

Difficult to see Etching

I've taken a photo, but I forgot to take a picture before I arranged the flowers in the vase, so its a bit difficult to see the etching.

I added some ruby red glass pebbles to the bottom of the vase and finished it off with a tag made with a lovely Ruby Red Rose Print from the Graphics Fairy.

In return for her lovely Flowers in an personalised etched vase,  I was treated to a lovely home raised spit roasted Lamb Dinner at her Ruby Wedding Party held in the Barn at her Farm!
