Nobody warned me that dog walking is very dangerous to your health!
I am 53 years young today and have my first broken bone!
Yep, I have broken my wrist and have a nice brand new cast in which to celebrate my Halloween birthday.
The good thing is that it is my left arm, the bad thing is it hurts a lot!
The traction........which seemed a pretty medieval way to treat a 21st Century person, went well I am told so it seems unlikely it will require pinning.
I did get a couple of much nicer presents though.
Two cheeky mandrakes by Mags.
My husband bought them from her very well stocked and busy stand at Alexandra Palace.
Absolutely love them.
My lovely husband also bought me these fabulous pieces by Stokesey Ware from their Victorian kitchen range. They are so beautifully crafted in traditional earthenware.
I will definitely age and distress the corks ready for The Cauldron Shop.
Lastly I had to have the bread crock.
Who says that witches wouldn't have a few classy pieces in their kitchens? Not me! The collection is very extensive but can be added to slowly which I like.
Their fine china is simply to die for.
I had to begin a collection from this artisan as they are based in Stoke Newington a north London borough where I was born and bred. I only moved to leafy Hertfordshire on having children.
I can't believe that miniature fine china is now being made 5 minutes from where I was born!
My parents 'bought' me this tea set from Sally Meekins. It was made specially for Ally Pally and as I had purchased her pumpkin set a couple of years ago I knew it had my name written on it.
It has all been hand painted and is so delicately made on fine china.
This set is also destined for The Cauldron Shop. I am thinking of a round display table upstairs........
Happy Halloween to you and yours.
