A Still Life Spring Market


We’re so thrilled to be part of A Still Life’s second market! A wonderful intimate location with a small cluster of creative and talented individuals. (So obviously we’re thrilled pink to be asked to be involved!)

I was introduced to Vicky and Kirsty creators of A Still Life through a family friend, Elaine, whom took me to one of Vicky’s garden parties. Through that meeting Elaine and I had attended other events that Vicky hosted. All of which were creatively inspiring. I managed to meet Sally who was Davide’s and my wedding photographer. I even purchased my wedding dress at one of the wedding fairs they once hosted. Clarey and Barney of The Manor Garden who hold the most wonderful wreath workshops, which I have to attend at least one a year! Daily I am inspired by all these unique individuals and think you will be too.

So if you fancy a drive out on Saturday 25th March then you must drive along to this special market…

It’s the perfect place to pick up a beautifully unique gift for your Mum for Mother’s Day.

You can even pre order a beautiful bouquet of flowers ranging in price from £15-£40 by the super talented Kirsty of Darling & Green.


Just click on the link below to pre-order such a beautiful floral surprise for your Mama!


Other exhibitors include Vicky of The Linen Garden, who sources the most stunning floral linen and creates timelessly beautiful products ranging from bags to napkins.


My infectiously enthusiastic and kind friend, Susannah will also be exhibiting at the event, my absolute favourite product from &Mead is the linen aprons. Obviously I wear mine with pride in the bakery!


That’s just to name a couple of the exhibitors!

And of course, I will be there with some goodies from The Olive Stone and you will be able to have a seat while you took into one of our special financiers and a good brew! (And natter!)

Loveheart Workshops


At the weekend, my friend Lottie came up from Worcester to visit. Both of us, love crafts and spent most of our university days knitting, sewing and baking. Lottie is planning her wedding to Lewis next year so I decided to organise a trip to Loveheart Workshops, owned by Alison, a wonderful friend and regular visitor to The Olive Stone.


Oh and what fun we had!

Alison is a very enthusiastic and inspiring lady. Her passion for pottery and art is infectious! Lottie and I left the workshop in a creative daze and could have spent the whole day making pretty clay decorations!


 We made vases and cute decorations. Lottie has created a wonderful ring dish for their wedding day too. 

There are boxes upon boxes of cutters and stamps. Allowing you to create the most unique gifts and decorations.

Alison organises weekly pottery, art, felting and even book making classes so take a look at her website http://www.loveheartworkshops.co.uk/home or search for Loveheart Workshops on Facebook. We had a private booking on Saturday. It would be great also for hen or birthday parties.


Our pieces were waiting for the kiln when we left so when they are all finished, we will share the finished articles when we pick them up! Thanks again Alison!
