Naturally sloe

Picking, looking and enjoying.

Holy cow, that's not a cow!

Me and hubby went sloe picking. It almost didn't happen. We had to cross a field with a herd of cows in them. Anyone who knows me well, will know that I am not comfortable around animals. I'm a real city girl, who has never had a pet.
Now cows are big, and they take notice of you, and come over to investigate. So we started walking across the field, no problem. Then we got close to a mother and calf, and one of the cows (without udders) got twitchy. It was at that point I realised that there were bulls in the herd. This huge black fella started gambolling over to us, snorting through its nose, warning us away from mum and baby. We turned and started back to the gate fast. Ruddy hell, it was so far away! I had visions of being trampled underfoot, and my heart was beating so hard and fast it made me feel sick.
We got out, and it was my hubby who was nearly sick from laughing so hard. You can go off people very quickly!!!!!!!!!!!!

A little less than a while ago

I had fun taking my aunt out to one of the few true haberdashery shops left in London. They also do art and craft supplies. My aunt who is a bit of a clown, had to try on one of the masks. The lady behind her was obviously thinking the two of us were a bit strange.

A while ago

The glass bead fair in Stourbridge at the Bonded Warehouse. I went along to support GBUK (

Pics of the building, people getting ready and some of Min Fidler's animal beads. Yep, I had to buy one. And her gorgeous ring that she would not sell to me. You can check out her website here

A fistful of mandrels

Well after a short hiatus with no internet access, I'm back to show you what I managed to make in one productive session.
