Country Girl at Heart

I have just spent a few days with my my Mum who lives in the glorious Berkshire countryside. Glorious sums it up perfectly.....May is my favorite summer month, everything looking so green, new and fresh... a taste of hot summer days, and BBQ's in the garden.

I Love the wonderful colours of the landscape, the vivid yellow of the oilseed rape fields.

The Bob enjoyed himself.......

.....even when covered in seed heads!!

Even my mums faithful English Bull Terrier, was interested in the familiar looking dogs, or is it sheep???

And what brought back such fantastic memories of my childhood, was seeing the newly sheared sheep and the shearing field covered in wool, and the lambs playing.

Pure Bliss......Thanks Mum!!!

Work, work, work...

I have had my fantastic Funky Punky Bouquet featured in Prefect Wedding Magazine!!! June 08

Yay for Vintage Magpie!!!

Well the wonderful weather hasnt stopped me working hard. But I did spend most of my week sat in the courtyard, wiring and finishing off my orders.

If only I could sit on the beach and work :)

A tan while working on my latest order, what a thought! x

A sweet vintage corsage for the Mother of the bride, matches perfectly with the 2 bridesmaids bouquets.

What's that in the sky?.....Is it a bird? it a plane?....Oh My God it's the SUN!!!

For the first time this year I have sat in my lovely courtyard and done some work!! Yes the sun was out, was warm!!! ;0
I had my music playing in the background while Iworked on the wording for the new website. The birds were singing, and the swifts were chatting and swooping for bugs in the azure blue sky.
I took photos just in case, like last year this is the best we get!

Get out in it while you can. xxx

Ohhhhh.......New website!

Most of today I have spent with my wondeful website Dad!!
My website is near enough 2 years old, and to be honest slightly rushed, so me and Dad got to working on something new for me! After a roast lunch that is ;)

And I'm happy to report it's lovely, simple, and very Vintage Magpie!!! But it will not be ready until next weekend ;( ...... so watch this spot for a 'going live' date!

Then you can let me know what you think....yay! xxx
