Dotty about Spots

Love that bag!
 This week has had rather a spotty theme to it! I've treated myself to a new handbag for winter from the lovely Nicky at Love that Bag!

I've also made up lots of  kits, using the dotty bags that Becky from Dots and Spots supplies, as opposed to the old plain bags. I think they look brilliant if I say so myself!

We also had to have a new kettle as the old ones switch had stopped working. and it was good-bye to the old spotty kettle and hello to the new!

Pickle-Lily and I have been busy making things for next week-end, as we have some really lovely events that we are looking forward to.
Saturday we are at Mells, for Christmas in the Barn . P and I visited it in the spring for their spring event and it was such a super event. Full of beautiful things to buy (which we did) and a gorgeous location. This Christmas we have been lucky enough to be invited as sellers and we are so looking forward to it!
Sunday I am at Exeter Castle for the Craft Hub's Christmas Craft Jam, another amazing location and it will be full of beautiful things to spend my pennies on!
Finally, Monday is the amazing Blackmore Farm Christmas shopping event. I was lucky enough to be there last year and have been invited back this year.
Today is Stir-up Sunday, the day when traditionally you make your Christmas pudding, and we have made ours today. A handy cooking tip - don't use your finger to clear the blender when making bread crumbs and then switch it on! It doesn't do fingers or blenders any good!
I'm off to check the water in the pudding pan, but should be back later in the week. In the meantime why not visit Handmade Monday and see what all the other bloggers have been up to?



When I read your post, it was with loots of ooohs. I love spots and thought the bags were great - however, love your kettle even more. Hope you have a good week.

Your bags look really great in those spotty bags. Why is it that spots are always so cheerful? You must have had a really cheerful week and are in for many more :)

Suffering from kettle and bag envy here - sadly my kettle is in great nick and was given me by a friend so I can't justify changing it!

All the spots are fabulous - especially your kettle!
Christmas at the Barn sounds lovely, and I'm sure you'll spend lots at Exeter Castle! Have fun. x

I think you may have gone a little dotty. The bags do look lovely, very pretty. I love the kettle, so much more fun than silver.

Love all your dots and spots, your kit bags are great.
It sounds like a bit of an ouch with the blender, hope the finger is healing.
