we're off to the city

A bit like Shaun the Sheep we're off to the city for an adventure - we'll be going to Bristol, the home-town of Aardman and the cultural capital of the West Country (according to Susan, although to be fair, having lived there for 20 years she does sound a bit like she works for the Bristol tourist board at times).

It's the Redland May Fair on bank holiday Monday and this year we're lucky enough to have been allocated a stall, which hopefully won't be too far from Susan's artist sister Jenny Urquhart's stall.  The May Fair is a bit of a Bristol tradition and draws in thousands of people with its eclectic range of craft stalls, fabulous food and family entertainment.  And it's free to visit!  We're looking forward to catching up with old friends - fingers crossed for dry weather...

hilary johnson handmade bags visit America

I was just tidying up some photo files and I found these piccies of when my bags went on a trip to America.

They had a lovely time (and so did my friends Josie, Susan and Kara - sometimes we just need to escape the peace and quiet of the muddy Devon countryside and walk on pavements and go in real shops!)
