Chronicle Christmas Fair, Saturday 15th December…that’s tomorrow!

It’s the Chronicle Christmas Market tomorrow, Saturday 15th December, and although we’re expecting some less than hospitable weather, we’re hoping you’ll come and have a look around at the lovely crafts, sample the delicious local foodstuffs and enjoy the festive atmosphere! We’re there from 9am-6pm, so do take a moment from the high street madness to pay us a visit! I shall be there with my sweet little friends, who are all looking for brand new homes for Christmas! 

Thinking About a New Look

Hello there!

I’ve been thinking I need to pay this site some attention. It does tend to get neglected in favour of my online shops, for instance. And so I think it needs to serve a different purpose, rather than feeling somehow like a kind of add on, an old friend you keep feeling bad about neglecting, when you’re really fond of them, actually.  I think we need a new look, at least, and some serious thought put into what is needed from the site. So over the summer I’m going to brew up some ideas and see what I can come up with! In the meantime, here’s a pretty picture or two, and the promise of something just a little bit exciting coming up very soon!

See you back here soon, I hope! Lucy x

Is Spring here? Or am I being too optimistic?

Lovely and bright, this flowery horse is now for sale in my Etsy shop!

I might be feeling the Spring thing a little early, but this warm sunshine sure makes me feel happy! I’ve started listing some lovely new products online here – https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/TheWhistlingCowgirl?ref=si_shop  – and am busy sewing for my first Made in Shropshire market of the year, next Saturday in Ludlow, from 9am-5pm. It’s in the town centre, just off the main market in the square. I shall be bringing my new spring collection of fresh, flowery goodies to celebrate the start (we hope) of a lovely, sunny, warm year ahead!

Crafty Vintage plus Vintage Escapades….It’s All ‘Appnin

Here’s all the details you need for two splendid events this weekend! I’m going to be at both and am greatly looking forward to them! Are you coming? First up it’s Crafty Vintage at Bishops Castle on Saturday 2nd November, then Vintage Escapades on Sunday the 3rd. I’m trying to find the poster nestling about somewhere on my computer, but I can’t. I’ll find it later and upload it. Anyway, the event is 10am – 4pm as usual, at Woore Victory Hall, Woore, Cheshire,  so come along and start your seasonal shopping!
