Fred and Happy. I'm in Happy style heaven!

Well, I am still quivering with excitement. I got to meet Fred from Fred's World Blog and Happy from Happy Loves Rosie. And they were such lovely peeps. So lovely. I'm sure they thought I was a complete idiot, as I've been so in awe of their blogs and their style that I've only recently felt able to leave comments, so meeting them was a little bit scary. Yep, I'm all of seven years old! I walked past their stand twice before I plucked up the courage to say hi! Sometimes I could give myself a good whack.

So, of course I had to buy one or two little things on their stall (which they had started to pack up!). Although I've just seen Fred has described it as a ram raid! Outrageous!!! Angel, I didn't, honest!!!
I almost didn't go, as it was p**ing down with rain, and I was sure nobody in their right mind would be there, but I'm so glad I did, as it made my day to see them. Blimey, I sound a right odd one here, don't I. I should've got their autographs!

So I've given you a peep of one of the items, because I have to wait for sun to photograph the rest, otherwise it just wouldn't do it justice. I've also got to download a pic from my phone of me and a certain rather lovely stallholder!

So, on to other things. Last night was so warm, the children did a surprise in the garden...

Yep. They laid out the table! Good, isn't it!

And they helped make the pudding...

which was yummy.

Shame the weather didn't last (for Fred and Happy especially).

Oh, and to humiliate myself ... here's the awful clutch bag which I've given up on.

The skirt worked. Thank you for asking - I'll post a picture as soon as I remember to steal it back from my daughter's room.

Hugs, all. xxx

Lacey, I'm sure I already left a comment, but here goes again.

Fancy you being a groupie but I would have been too if I lived nearby LOL.

I love the clutch bag, is the fabric a teatowel? If you don't feel like using it as a "going out" bag, you can always use it for something else.

Well done you for attempting such a tuffy, and keep going.

Love and blessings

How lucky you are to rifle through the goodies that must have been on Fred and Happy's stall!
Love the rose fabric and my 15 year old thinks your bag looks great.
Your children are so sweet to do that for you!
