Last Market, Cakes and A Coat

Today was the Christmas Market, last one of the year, and it went well.

The other stalls around were delightful – next door to me a cake stall with gorgeously decorated small cakes and some delightful biscuits, made by Pink Peach Cake Co.

‘Love Betty’ was across the way and a lovely young woman, a student at Falmouth University, bought a coat that suited her so very well.

The Sea, Logs and Glasses

We love the winter when all the leaves have gone off the trees and we can again see the sea from our bedroom window.

As we drove into the drive to visit friends today, there was this beautifully neat wood pile.

Our friends showed us some beautiful old glasses with a flower at the bottom. The effect of the cut glass makes a kaleidoscope effect which is absolutely lovely.

 

Market, Parade and Happiness

The Christmas Market went well despite the appalling weather.

It was the Lights Switch-on Parade tonight and my choirs were singing in the pouring rain but with smiles on our faces! The Parade went by in a misty blur.

It will be December tomorrow. Here is Action for Happiness’s advice for the month.

For my cat-loving friends…..  enjoy this.

Mechanic’s Art, Window Box and Shoots

We were waiting for the car at the local garage when I spotted the sculpture which the owner later told us had been made by an apprentice. It made me smile, especially the wearing of a tie!

A preview for you! The gallery, Fannie & Fox in Penryn, where I sell my glass is doing an Advent Calendar for the window display over December. Each artist is making a box to showcase their work and has been given a number. I’m No 5 and I showed you the 5 the other day. Here is my shoe box.

Despite the cold, wet and windy weather, for some reason just one of the bulbs that I planted for Spring is popping through into the light, far  too  early.

Five, Poster and Sunset

At the gallery where I sell my glass, Fannie & Fox, we are preparing our Christmas window and I have to make a number five so today that was my plan.  It’s  very  small,  just  6cms  tall.

The poster below is advertising our Christmas show opening on November 30th as Penryn’s Christmas lights are switched on.I won’t be able to be there as Redruth’s lights are also being switched on that evening and I am booked at the Christmas Craft Market as well as singing carols after the lights parade!

I just caught this evening’s sunset over Four Lanes.

Detail, Pond and Sheep

The Natural History Museum is a beautiful piece of architecture. Click on any photo for the full detail.

The outdoor area has a couple of ponds where the golden Autumn leaves were floating and some curly coated sheep were mowing the grass.

Market, Blossom and Cactus

Despite it being the Rugby World Cup Final (Well done, South Africa!) and blowing a hoolie (winds of 70 – 100 mph!) the Market, all indoors today, was a success with a lovely buzz about it.

Part of the display on my stall – Christmas colours and Angels

The Choisya is putting out some blossom again! Its  scent  is  gorgeous  but  with  so few flowers  you have  to  get  close  to  appreciate  it.

And …. our Christmas Cactus is blooming early.
