There was much...

...frenzied tidying, dusting and mop and bucket action at Knox Towers last week. The windows shone, the cushions were plumped, the candles twinkled and every cupboard had a warning to open slowly and stand well back in case of landslides. This preceded a visit from quite lovely people at Country Living Magazine.

The day itself was perfect. The sun shone, we drank tea, gossiped and laughed a lot. Oh, and Charlie took some pictures too.

I pretended that the children always kept their bedroom that tidy, the house was always filled to the brim with fresh flowers and scented candles always burned in every room. I was foolin' no one. They know me too well. Anyway, the result should be out sometime in the Spring.

Next job, Operation Christmas.
It's looking good.
Have you got the dates in your diary? Friday 8th - Sunday 10th November. See you there?

...is it really that long since I last put a post up here? The last post was all about our late summer Open Weekend, and now we're gearing up for the next one, and this time we're talking Christmas people! 8th, 9th and 10th November - put it in your diary, tell your friends, whatever - I've got a head full of sparkly ideas already!
Meanwhile, I am mostly in love with white...

...in all it's wonderful shades. Brilliant white, old white, chalk white, grey white, I love 'em all. Especially when you throw them all together.

I also met a lovely lady last week, making these. I think she is totally beautiful with her hand-embroidered vintage lace dress and her slightly nutty expression. I'd put a link in to contact the clever maker, but she's obviously better with a needle than she is with a computer and doesn't have a website. Who can blame her. I'm hoping she might make some for us to sell on the website though.
