Bridal season is upon us

The bridal season is well and truly upon us and because I have been involved in making bridal wear for such a long time and know how hard it is to get known in the bridal designing world I though I would give a mention to a great new blog called Folksy weddings all about hand made bridal related items by designers, as well as being a very good blog it is also a very good way to get some good ideas for your up and coming weddings, please have a look you will not be disappointed.

I have been very busy myself with designing some new bridal petticoats some short to suit the trendy 5o's style weddings and some long to suit the traditional wedding which are available for sale in my shop for those looking for the perfect bridal petticoat and accessories.

While we are on weddings would like you to share a few of my own personal favorites this one is from Lizziejayne on Etsy a beautiful design set off by a lovely contrasting sash, this dress would work well with one of my 50's style petticoat in a colour to match the sash.

I don't wear jewellery much but if I was to ever do the married bit again I would choose this Swarovski pearl necklace to wear as I love pearl and this is so beautifully made by SJ-Creative

Saturday jumble sale

To day (Sat 6th Feb) has been a very eventful day with an early start rising at 7 o'clock to help my daughter Jackie with a jumble sale she was running to help raise funds for her village (Shorwell on the Isle Of Wight) to get some playground equipment, OH and I arrived at village hall at 8 'clock after picking up another friend to help us, once inside hall there was so much jumble we could hardly get in hall and even more arriving as we set up stalls, I don't think we have worked so hard for a long time getting it arranged for 10 'clock onto tables and looking good to sell, doors were opened and a flood of dealers and buyers descended on us at once scrambling for what they wanted to buy, with teas coffee and cake being served to refresh them so they might just go buy some more, it was hard work but at the end of the day she raised £540.00, well done Jackie and every one who helped.
