Are you sure you like these ‘Weekend in Pictures?’… It’s a bit repetitive I’ve noticed… are you bored? Work and Eat seems to be the trend. Didn’t realise this until I started the series.

Well, it was a market weekend which means a working weekend… an early rise Saturday morning and setting up the trestle tables and making it look as beautiful as possible… (in the dark)….  to the wafting aromas of our site neighbours’ freshly baked Italian bread. We always break some bread together in the mornings while it is still dark with the bakers while the bread is still warm. Their bread is the best.

I was thrilled to see one of my favourite flowers are back in season – Stocks, they have the most beautiful fragrance and it’s always a pleasure when the grower is as excited as you are about a new flower being in season. Lots of hand waving and excitement!

We were very busy with people rattling and rummaging around, on a hunt. I love making people happy when they find something they just absolutely must have.

Then the rain came down; it gave Timothy O and I a good chance to chat about some things and take a break which was lovely.

Then it is the ‘Grand Pack Up’… we are always one of the last ones to leave the market… packing up takes a while….

Then it was home to sit by the fire and make a simple dinner, we were a bit exhausted.

Come Sunday I spent the day working on a shoot I have coming up with Toby Scott this week. Making panels of faux wall with subway tiles.

And that is it. All over Red Rover til next weekend!

    i have always wondered what you and Timothy O do when it rains at the markets, all your lovely wears out on display, do you cover up the tables like they do at the cricket?


    • Hi Sarah! We actually pack our market pagola thing (the ones which all the other market stalls have) when we think it is going to seriously rain… some times I ‘wing’ it and just ‘hope’ it doesn’t rain, however it looked fairly certain on Saturday so we packed the pop up pagola thing. I’m so glad you too are enjoying the Weekend in Pictures! K xxxxx
