Gaye has been preparing her little cottage "Violet Annie's" for some time as a Home Stay & in the midst of her industry had the lovely idea to have a Pop-up Shop, just for one day. I was delighted to be invited to join in as a bringer of magpie things : ) So, with my little car loaded to the roof with tea trolley, card table, vintage suitcases & the such-like I arrived on the door step on a glorious, well, quite scorching really.. summers day. I knew I had arrived at a happy place when I was greeted at the top of the (bumpy..it's rural) drive & at the Violet Annie gate by these fluttering scarf bunting.
hollyhocks & lace
and a lovely
just a little of Gaye's lovely work
& this perfect picture on the living room wall

trees spill down the
& perennial teller of tales..many a murmmuring from those lips of 3 or 4 Pop-up Shops a year! ; )
there'll be more tales from Violet Annie's Cottage in the not too distant future, of that I'm certain.
