Nearly time to hibernate....

what a busy few weeks we've had!!
and now bluebelle vintage is winding down for the winter..
i'm getting ready to hibernate with a rather large glass of wine
and stay in my lovely snug little cottage til spring!
One lovely fair left and its craft with a Bluebelle vintage twist 
at the stunning Guild Hall in Leicester.
Not my usual antique and vintage but a little bit of my creative side shining through..
Painted small furniture - Fabrics - Handmade bunting - Christmas decorations
& a few Vintage one off pieces...

see you at the Magical 15th century Guildhall in Leicester for a bit of Christmas magic
Saturday 30th Nov/Sunday 1st December

Every day is a journey...

The end of the summer holidays is always sad for me...
I love my daughters home from Uni but get hardly any work done at all!
but hey...its the summer & i love lazy days of eating whenever we like 
& long derbyshire walks...even if its just for lunch in the nearby village pub!
Having everyone home also makes me realise what's important to me..
my family! (however scruffy they are :)

hope you all had a fantastic summer & are ready for the next big adventure!

late nights..
hanging around in the streets..
braving the cold in pyjamas..

Its so rock n roll at bluebelle vintage.... or is it?
erh no!
i'll come clean....we have a visiting hedgehog!!
we love his visits so much we stay up late and brave the dark in our pjs with a torch & 
a handfull of meal worms in the hope of spotting him..
(our neighbours gave us the mealworm inside info - they visit them as well)

and yesterdays big tada was he brought his wife to see us too!
they actually ate worms and stayed with us until we were soooo cold 
we had to go back to our lovely (vintage of course!) beds
...oh and have a brandy for medicinal purposes (any excuse!)
It felt like such a treat for him to bring his he was actually introducing her to us!
I feel truly honoured to have Mr & Mrs Hedgehog in my life :)
Roll on 11pm!
