Books + Coffee = Perfection

Just had a morning wander around Chipping Norton and discovered my very favourite kind of shop - a combination bookshop / cafe - Jaffe and Neale.
Loads of tempting books and a lovely little cafe. Did a bit of guilt-free Christmas shopping and managed to resist buying any books....

Rainy Tuesday...

These are two custom-made Beach Huts I've just completed - I can personalise them with names, colours, numbers, flags etc - get in touch if you'd like your own! (Apologies for the terrible photos..)

I had a great time at the Contemporary Craft Shopping Experience on Sunday, it was busy all day and I had some lovely neighbours - Hodge Podge ceramics and Emerald Bespoke Picture Framing

Today is rainy and pretty miserable out, so I'm being very organised and cooking our Christmas Cake, yum!

Lovely Pigeon

I love Cecilia Levy's work - have a look at her series of pigeons, they're gorgeous.

Dino Mania!

Since our visit to the dinosaurs last weekend, Dino Mania has taken over...
This is a very friendly Tyrannosaurus by Bill.

I'm busy getting ready for the Contemporary Craft Shopping Experience on November 22nd at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre near Leamington Spa. It promises to be a great Christmas shopping opportunity so come along - opening hours are 10am to 4pm.

Christmas Cards are here!

I picked up our lovely new Christmas cards from the printers today - they look great and will soon be available to buy in the shop- singly and in packs of four (one of each design).

Then we popped up to Chipping Campden to visit Hannah in the gorgeous Baby Days shop - she sells loads of lovely children's clothes, toys and baby accessories - we dropped off some New Baby Girl and Boy cards, and admired Hannah's own new baby, who was being shop baby for the day! Visit the Baby Days website for some unique Christmas gift ideas, or if you're in the area, pop into Cambrook Court, off the High Street in Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire.

Up and Away!

We went to Oxford on Saturday to the Oxford University Museum of Natural History The Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton was a big hit, the shrunken heads in the connected Pitt Rivers Museum weren't so popular...

And today we finally went to see Up, which was great - and in 3D - even better!
