just another busy weekend

When Matthew started designing and making the blue spruce balls, some clever person (no names mentioned) said "wouldn't it be nice to have a sprinkling of snow on the balls.  So last Sunday, we hung the spheres up and added some red cornus twigs for a bit of extra drama and thought how splendid they looked.

Then came the first dusting of snow - just enough to make the town look seasonally festive.

But it didn't stop there.

Several hours later, we dug out the shop and carried on. 

Magic has been worked with metal rings and moss, spruce and cones.
oranges and lemons, fungi and cinnamon 
all to make garlands and swags, to decorate doors and mantles across the county

for a very natural garland, lotus heads, fungi, Spanish moss and seed heads

It's late night shopping in Petworth tomorrow Saturday 4th December
do come along, there will me mulled wine and carol singing,
farmers market and local crafts on sale.

Just one wedding this weekend along with several parties.
Fingers crossed for no more snow please.
