holly trail

I'm back safe and sound from 4 days in Havelock North at The Holly Trail. It was such a privilege to be invited to have a stall there. The atmosphere was divine and the shoppers so elegant. The organizers had put me next to my friend and we had so much fun. Really hope to be involved in the next one which hopefully will take place in two years time.
Far too tired to chat for long so I'll just leave you with a few shots of the fabulous vineyards that surrounded the amazing house and grounds where the show took place. Most of the photos were taken as we were setting up each day. I'm still buzzing from the experience but it's so good to be home.

I now have a Havelock stockist, Carrie from Cadeaux. You'll find the address in the side bar to the left.
I'll be back later on in the week with a little post about the goodness of people.
Until then…
