Hospital camp beds...

are not at all I found out last week when my gorgeous girl was admitted to hospital...

Five nights later with lots of care and the right medicines I am very glad to say that she is home again and well on her way to recovery ~ her smile has come back!

I wanted to say a big thank you to all customers, friends and people I have never met before for such kind emails, texts and messages over the past week and for your patience if you were waiting for an order to arrive!  I am just about catching up with packages so if you haven't received it yet, it should be with you in the next couple of days and I do apologise for the slight delay in despatching them.  Normally, I am the fastest shipper in the West!

I must admit I feel a bit shell shocked and am gently easing myself back into normality...

I had to cancel my space at The Vintage Bazaar at Devizes on Saturday, sorry that I missed you, but I will be out and about next month in Hartley Wintney and Frome ~ and I am glad to say that there will be another at Devizes later in the year and I will be there!  

So, in the meantime I plan to catch up on a bit of creativity, making lots more stock for my website and fairs, alongside some tidying up and sorting out!  I am planning a workroom declutter and will be making up some 'Betty & Violet Special Vintage Selection Packs' with scraps of antique and vintage textiles, buttons, ribbons, ephemera etc.  

I also have re-stocked my online bookstore with Jeanne d'Arc Living books that were previously out of stock, so if you were after a copy of 'Fairytale Easter', 'Amazing Retreats', 'Best Recipes' or the original 'Christmas' book I have limited quantities available here.

The March issue of the magazine is also available ~ with lots of gorgeous inspiration for Springtime....

Looking forward to catching up with you all again soon...
