Scarecrow Festival .......

Every year in July our village holds a Scarecrow Festival. It's a great hit with the little people, my two included !

This was one of their favorites.

Slowwww Progress .........

Here is my progress so far on my Stripy Granny, or lack of it as it so happens ! I'm cross with myself for being so slack but hopefully I will have a hooky boost very soon.

Another thing that is oh so slow at the moment is my new kitchen. It's still not finished, but there is a good or rather bad reason for that. My lovely handy man is unwell & I'm not sure when he will be back, I am hoping that he will be able to finish it before the little men break up next Friday, fingers crossed.

Once it is finished I will share before, during & after photos with you. I am sooo very happy with how it has turned out & can't wait to see the finished result, & with such a tight budget too !!

I have been doing a lot of sorting & clearing of junk so the house is beginning to look like a home & not a junk yard, lots of trips to the local tip yard where I have picked up some bargains, two lovely rugs & some wooden garden chairs all for just £12.oo. Oh I do love a bargain !
