I'm pleased to announce that over the last week our Mollyblobs have come out. Mollyblobs is an old country name for Marsh Marigolds, and I think it's a far lovelier name. I'm trying to bring it back into common usage, so please feel free.
This week Dick decided to sell Otto's kennel, it had been a bit of a disaster. Otto had been through a short phase of separation anxiety and we thought he might be happier outside if we had to pop out and leave him. He was happier outside, but had no interest in the kennel whatsoever. Even if I threw a treat in there for him he would just go in and get it and bring it outside to eat. Anyway, Dick put the kennel at the bottom of the drive with a sale sign on - it was soon snapped up. It made me laugh seeing it going down the road on top of a car, a mobile home for dogs!
I have been putting several new items on the website this week, including Sea Glass necklaces which are bang on trend. You may well notice that I am not making earrings to go with each necklace any more, it has just gone out of fashion to having matching sets and I'm being left with lots of earrings! If you want earrings to go with your necklace just contact me and I'll hopefully be able to help.
Mary's Little Gems will be at two events this weekend - Halesworth Produce Market from 9.00 - 12.30 on Saturday, and at Daffodil Day at The Old Rectory in St Margaret South Elmham from 11.00am (£2 entrance fee).
I've never considered myself to be an author, but I'm willing to give it a go. I'm 57 going on 30 (sadly I look 57). I work from home, so am very lucky..
