Mary Margaret's Apartment ~ Once Upon A Time

Sunday night just isn't the same without Channel 5's Once Upon A Time to look forward too! Nothing else quite fits the bill of fairy tales for adults!!

As well as loving the story line, My favourite thing was Mary Margaret's apartment - her rustic beautiful apartment with its exposed brick walls, lots of white, aged bookcases and the simple vintage kitchen! Anybody else rewind and pause to look at it? Well, it appears I'm not alone, I googled Mary Margaret's apartment and found lots of images, blogs and a fan website.

Here are a few images of the famous apartment:

Hallway Update

The Hallway seems to be taking us forever to finish, maybe its just because I walk through it so often so notice it more than I would any other unfinished room.

Luckily, my Parents have just been to stay for a couple of days and my Dad very kindly fitted new handrails and spindles on our stairs and I can't believe what a difference it has made. It has inspired me to get on with it now.

Here are a few before & after pictures:

Chimney Pot Planter

We went to the car boot early this morning, full of excitement at what we mind find, but unfortunately it was a little disappointing :( There were not many stall holders there and it was hardly worth the £3 to park. I think its starting to wind down - what will I do with no car boots over Winter???

On the way back we stopped at the market/car boot (which we don't usually do as the kids have normally had enough by then) but its free parking so we gave it a try.

This one also didn't have many stalls but there was one guy selling all kinds of troughs, milk churns and all sorts of things that I thought would make unusual planters in the garden. In the end we bought this bishop style chimney pot from him. What do you think?

Craft stall

Today I had a stall at a 'Makers Day' at our local Heritage Centre. It was a successful day so thought I would share some pictures with you.

No matter how organised I try to be before a fair, I always feel really anxious, convinced I have forgotten something important and don't properly relax until I am fully set up and have made that first sale :)

Here is my stall

My bargain buys this weekend!

I'm feeling a little lost here this morning, my Partner is back at work (after a long summer off), my Son is at pre-school and my daughter is asleep, so I thought I would tell you about my bargain buys this weekend!

Firstly on Saturday we went into town and did our usual rounds of the charity shops. I got a lovely embroidered table cloth for a pound, but the best buy was this kitchen and accessories for the children:
