This building has always been a workspace as the wheelright in the 1800's used it to mend the carts. It has a lovely north light and a brick floor ( filled with sparkly bits where I've dropped countless sequins ! )
I thought that you fairy fans might like to have a peek around the house and garden. In my books Betty's house ( High Chimneys ) has been inspired by this cottage. We love it here but are rapidly running out of space to live and have vowed that we really must not buy any more bric-brac, robots or old china. So scarce has space become that we are thinking of moving and so I must record more of the crowded nooks and crannies before they get tidied away.

Well now that I'm married I can really settle down to familiarising myself with this new ( to me ) world of blogging ! In the next few weeks I hope to have a section dedicated to my cards, set up Pay Pal and then I hope to get Betty's shop really up and working. Just to back track, I was very happy with the final magical effect of my wedding cake; the pale peach icing matched the pearls I wore and the silver sugared almonds matched my shoes. I also made thirty fairy brides on wires that were stuck into the icing and taken away as favours by all the lady guests ( the men seemed happy enough with the almonds ! ) we are now back from our honeymoon in Italy and I must dust down my sewing machine and get back into production ... hope to post up the results soon !
