Exciting Times - Homespun and Vintage Fair

This is a very exciting time for me. Together with my lovely friend Cheryl-Ann, we are organising our very own Homespun and Vintage Fair. This has been a dream of ours for so long and we hope to turn the Friends Meeting House lovely venue in Pickering North Yorkshire,into an informal, cosy setting fora unique little Vintage Fair, with that “Homespun” atmosphere. Please have a peep at our flyer and follow our blog (Opposite) If you can manage to come we would love to see you x.
I will post more information about the fair later.

Starting Out

Hi there,

This is all very new to me. I set up the Scented Garden blog on a beautiful June morning, but did not know where to go from there. It is now a very Autumn, chilly damp day and I feel I know a little more about creating a blog. I recently visited my very good friend Andrea who gave me a lesson, which all seemed quite straight forward in her cosy room on the computer, however!!

Well, I will do my best, so if you come across my blog, it may look a bit strange, or back to front, but please be patient and visit me again, I would love to hear from you.

I am a floral designer and I work with both fresh and faux flowers. I am also a textile and vintage fanatic so I am always sewing and collecting vintage fabrics, I love the colours and the older the better.The fabrics quite often work their way in to my floral work along with old buttons and beads and sparkly things.
