In the Pink!!

I have just had a mad dash to Devon.. 24 hours to be precise.. not enough to soak up the beauty and peace of my favourite corner of Britain.. but long enough to discover that even in the darkest depths of Dartmoor.. one can pick up a copy of the Financial Times.No I was not checking my stocks and shares of Smarties tube tops ... but was eager to read the latest article by Caroline Taylor in the House & Home supplement... front page no less!
A very interesting article about the diversity of blogging and the enormity of this on-line labyrinth with Caroline particularly focusing on the interior design blogs of which there are many...
Caroline herself has recently opened her own on-line boutique called Patchwork Harmony Home Accessories at Patchwork-Harmony.co.uk which is linked to her blog.
I have to confess that there was a vested interest in buying the FT this morning.. not my usual weekend paper....
Caroline very kindly has mentioned the Vintage & Handmade Fair in her excellent article...
This is a wonderful boost for our event and who knows.. maybe one day you will be able to buy shares in our event.. and check them out between the pink pages!
I am certainly tickled pink to be mentioned on the pages of this publication...

How exciting! Oh how I WISH I lived closer! I'd have to take along several empty suitcases for my return trip home ~ I'm certain I'd fill them within an hour of attending the fair! =)

How great to get a mention in the FT! You seem to be getting lots of brill mentions here and there. The fair should be really buzzing. Hope you are getting time to make loads of stuff. I love all the bits you have found, hope we can do some swappsies again? Jane xxx

You're back! Glad you could find the FT in the depths of Devon - I managed to buy a copy in Chipping Sodbury as I went to check up on the hall for the fair.
Caroline did a super job with it & it should spread the word far & wide.

Jayne and you must be so proud! Is there any better free publicity? I still wish I could attend this fair which will be even better than the first. Enjoy your weekend!

That's really exciting for you. Reading the article in the FT has made me a little sad though as I wished I was going to be there but I am not able to get to it this time. x

That article is great - I was only thinking the other day what potential sharing your work, craft etc has.
I have been overwhelmed by the effect blogging has on me...to have encouragement from people from all over the place, really lifts me! Makes me want to do more and more!

Best Wishes

You deserve recognition Michele. Keep up the good work. Talking of work, how's the garden taking shape for the summer? x
