Arts and Crafts Festival

Whilst walking around my local area last week, I was surprised to see they were holding an arts and crafts festival. My friend and I decided to pay out £2.50 at the local primary school and collect a map with a list of about 30 houses who are showcasing their work.

We soon were wandering up and down the local street, visiting beautiful houses and gardens with amazing summer houses which were set up as studios.

We saw everything from pottery to jewellery to photography to home wear. And let’s not forget the gluten free cake (which makes it almost acceptable!).

It was a wonderful afternoon with an amazing atmosphere, we even hoped that one day we might be able to take part and show off out mosaics. But until then we have the open gardens in a couple of weeks to look forward to.

A Beautiful Country Break

I’ve never spent a long period of time in the country but during a recent family break to Wales to fell in love. I felt like I had that old cliche of feeling down-hearted when returning to the concrete maze of city life.  Here are a few snaps taken around Pembrokeshire in St. Davids, Rossili Bay, New Quay, Poppy Sands and Fishguard. I would most definitely recommend a visit to the area.
