I've Been To Lavender House Today

When I heard Emma from Lavender House was having an open house, and I thought it would be a great way to meet a fellow blogger. So this afternoon after my visit to 4 CS's a car boot and a Wedding Make up consultation (haven't told you about my wedding make up artistry yet will post soon)I pootled off to Lavender House. I wasn't exactly sure where it was, but when I saw the lavender coloured house and the bunting I knew I was there.
I parked up on the sea front - Lovely view, and walked towards the house.

As I walked in to the front garden I was met by a lady who welcomed me into her home, I asked " are you Lavender House" and she replied "yes", fab I've met my first blogger. I introduced myself as Sophie from Chez Sophie. We had a chat about who was exhibiting and I asked if I could take photo's "of course" Emma replied. So off I went in to the beautiful home of Lavender house. The items for sale were all beautiful and I could have spent a lot more than I did but I restrained myself.

I bought a beautiful Glass Heart to hang in my kitchen, Two of Emma's Photograph cards one is of the Lavender Fields she went to a couple of weeks ago which I was really taken with. And a lovely pair of Silver Earrings.

I picked up lots of leaflets about the artists on show and as I was paying, Emma saw that I had one of her post cards advertising her felt making workshop, she said she hoped I would come along to one, I would have loved to join in but they are in the daytime and I work full time which is a shame if there was an evening or weekend one I would definatly be there.
Thanks for opening your Lavender House Emma it was great.
The Open Houses event is still running, the open dates are Tomorrow 19th July and next weekend 25th & 26th July so pop along if you live nearby. Sophie xxx

Let's do it all over again!
Have been looking forward so really, really much to the Open Houses. It's been in my calendar for AGES and it now seems like life will take over and I won't be able to get there - extra poo! I don't know whether to cry now or wait until it's definitely all over ...
