I thought you might like to see what I'm working on at the moment. My club is putting on a display at a village fete in Corsley, Wiltshire on August Bank Holiday. We are going to celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee by creating a miniature fete of our own with lots of stalls and attractions. My stall is going to be the sweet stall. The pictures show where I am so far. I made chocolate covered apples, nougat, toffee, coconut ice, licorice bootlaces, dolly mixtures and lollipops. I bought the allsorts, flumps and jubilee gobstoppers and I made the scales from a kit. Today I am making chocolates and I am also going to make candy floss, more labels for the trays and the jars and little paper bags to hang by the scales. The stall (which I have not got as one of the other club members has it) will be decorated with a cloth and jubilee flags etc. I think it's going to look great. What do you think?

Hi everyone, hope you're all having a great weekend. It's not easy to choose a favourite room in the house but I love the study. The knole sofa is one of the first pieces I ever bought (I love the way the cushions squoosh down as though they have been sat on) and the Denis Jenvey Bonheur du Jour was a lucky find when The Singing Tree in Chelsea was having a closing down sale.
The little bookcase is by Tarbena filled with books from Ellie de Lacy. Above the mantlepiece there is this beautiful still life painting accompanied by a pair of bronze marli horses by Tony Knott. The only thing missing from this room now is a little wine table which I am hoping to find at Kensington on saturday (yaaaay, can't wait!).
