Sssshh dont mention the “C” Word!

So, here I was sitting in a well known shop today and suddenly realised they were playing Christmas Music! Now, I dont mind a bit of Shaky…..but in October! There is alot about Christmas shortages in the news which got me thinking that we should be supporting local business and home grown and home made products! Christmas should be all about the giving and spending time with love ones too!

Christmas Workshops

My Christmas Wreath Workshops are now up on my website! They were a great success last year so be quick so you don’t miss out! Enjoy creating your natural wreath with home grown foliage, flowers (as in season), dried grasses and flowers, and feathers and vintage ribbon! Working in our listed outbuildings in front of a toasty real fire, enjoying refreshments and mince pies! Whats not to enjoy!

Flower Garden

The cutting garden continues to bloom, it amazes me what there is still to pick! I am busy drying flowers too and will have a lovely selection available to buy soon!  We are also busy tidying the spent beds, sowing seeds and planting out the hardy annuals to over winter. The next big job will be planting the +1000 tulip bulbs! If anyone wants to help!…….

Despite not being able to go to France for new stock, my Etsy shop for Vintage Franglais has had the best year so far! So excited to see this grow……

Christmas workshops

We continue to add Vintage items (non French!) to our Vintage and Flowers Etsy shop too! which is also doing well. We have lots of baskets, pots, gardening  books and fab vintage ribbon so pop over and have a look!

I wish you all a safe lead up to Christmas and hope to see you at one of my workshops!
