Scary goings on in Barnsley town !

I had a great fun with Jaygo Touchy Feely Textiles, Cottonarts Bags, Cheery Amour Jewellery and Cupcake Cottage at the Halloween designers market in Barnsley last week

(that is apart from when I fell backwards off my stool and ended up in a giggly heap on the floor ... hence forth to be known as "doing a Karen" !)













We had a lovely visit from Barnsley Mayor, Karen Dyson, which cheered us all up on a very chilly and windy day





I can't wait for my next event which is "I Love Craft" taking place on Saturday 12th November at The Civic, Hanson Street, Barnsley ... not least because it is an indoors event - Woohoo - no need for the snow boots (I hope!)

Autumn in Croatia




I've just returned from a glorious week in Dubrovnik, Croatia - what a fabulous place. The scenery is awesome, the weather was perfect, the food was wonderful and the people were the most helpful and friendly people I've come across in a long time.


We stayed on the Lapad peninsula just outside Dubrovnik Old Town. There was a regular bus service to take us into the Old Town which ran every 15 minutes until 2am so there was no problem getting around.


We plumped for a hotel but I would have no problem recommending staying in one of the many Apartmen or Sobe's that are in and around both the Old Town and Lapad Bay - self catering would be no problem as there are plenty of supermarkets and restaurants knocking about to suit every pocket.


A fabulous place to visit if you get the opportunity ... and the view from the top of the cable car is something else!


My "friends" on facebook can see more photographs on my personal page ... awesome!
