She's back!

Yes, I have been a bad bad blogger. We have just been so busy - we have photographed 10 weddings in 30 days - that I haven't had time to blog. If you have suffered from one of my terse three word blog comments in the last few weeks I can only apologise for my lack of chattiness, and point out that you are a whole lot luckier than some, who got no comments at all.
Anyway things have calmed down a bit again so I thought I'd make time to do a little post.
Here are a few pictures I took just over a month ago of Padstow making itself all pretty ready for Mayday.





In Padstow May 1st  is "Obby Oss" day, where half of the village support the Red Oss, and half the Blue Oss, which parade through the streets. This pub is the "home" of the Blue Oss

Of course with being so busy I've also not had time to do anything much crafty or needle-related to show, but I did knock together this summer door wreath.
Very quick and easy,  just a bought twig ring with shells (picked up from the beach) and starfish (purchased) glued on at intervals, then I wired in some bunches of blue and white pearl beads to pick out the colours in the shells, and tied on a blue spotty bow and Ta da!
(and yes, the door still needs painting)

The summer wreath looks great, makes me think of long walks along the beach in the sand ...wishful thinking.

Very cute! I've made several shell wreaths, I'll have to post about them soon. I'm so thankful I live minutes from the beach!

It must be such fun to live in a village with all of those wonderful traditions--the decorations for May Day are so festive! Love your wreath, too, Christine! I'm sure the weddings over the summer will keep you very busy, too--hang in there :)

I do feel privileged now!

Great photos you've taken but why is the sky that funny blue shade? Isn't it usually a sort of dirty grey? Or is it just here? haha
