Christmas at the Barn

So this morning we woke up to this ...... snow!
The view from my studio or rather 'igloo' as it's aptly named at this time of the year, was beautiful.

The only one brave enough to venture out into the cold first thing was Sam - brave boy!
It was Freezing!

But by mid morning we were all wrapped up warm to head over to 'Christmas at the Barn' over in the Tithe Barn at Mells near Frome. The event was run by Rebecca from Edamay and how lovely it all was too.

Her wish of a dusting of snow, to complete the scene was granted and it was truly magical driving through the snow capped country lanes to get there.

My daughter did comment that it was the most Christmassy, Christmas Fair she had been to - ever! The very sensible Rebecca had laid on 'things to make and do' for the children, which kept my 2 nicely occupied whilst I had a natter and a good look around.

All the stalls were lovely - full to bursting with beautiful handmade arts and crafts I did snap Rebecca's stand - firstly because it looked beautiful and she'd worked so hard to organise the event and secondly it had lots of spotty things there for sale.

The snow didn't put people off and the barn was full of festive shoppers - a lovely hour spent doing what I like best - talking and shopping all at the same time!

What a lovely event to get in the Christmas spirit especially with a seasonal sprinkling.
