Hey Nunney, Nunney

Recently it has been busy, busy with street fairs in local towns and villages - some have been good and others very slow. On Saturday Mr PL. Pickle-Lily and I packed up the car and headed to a small village called Nunney (No1 son is at camp at the moment). Nunney is an idyllic Somerset village, very small and quaint, Wikipedia says it has a population of 910. It also has a ruined castle, that looks like a castle should!
The swing band playing by the moat
Four towers, one at each corner and a moat - it opens "Whenever sensible" and is well worth a visit.
On Saturday, we were one of over 120 stalls, and set up 'shop' next to the moat and listened to all the live bands all through the day in the lovely weather (despite the forecast!).
The view from our stall
We had a fabulous day - chatting to lovely people, listening to the music, watching the duck families on the moat and wandering around the maze of stalls. Apparently The Times said "One of the fetes to be seen at this summer".
I loved this plant stall

The river

These cupcakes were amazing and delicious!

Morris dancing of course!
The view from the bridge
If you ever get the chance, go! (It is also worth having a stall if you get the chance!)
This week P and |I are out and about a lot, as sister-in-law is coming for a visit, and we plan a trip to Wells amongst other things, but I hope to fit some making in and of course visit the other blogs on Handmade Monday.
Have a good week.

What a wonderful setting for a craft market... you would really love to buy something from them to remember the day... I love the plant stand with the old radio :)

This looks like a wonderful venue. One of the days I will have to pop up from Devon and have a closer look!
