As you probably know I am crazy about anything Vintage and that includes buildings! I work for just an afternoon a week in a stunning 15th Century building called The Cloth Hall, this is where cloth merchants would weave and sell their wears. The interior is heavily beamed, with crooked walls and floors, and we swear we have heard the resident ghost on many occasions walking above us on the empty top floor!!! The Cloth Hall is currently the Headcorn Antiques Centre where I have some of my hand made jewellery for sale. If you are ever in the area please do come and see us, we have everything but the kitchen sink, hang on......I think we may have one of those too!!!
Autumn is well and truly upon us and with it comes the stunning colours of the changing leaves. I took these photos this afternoon outiside the house, I couldn't really capture the beauty of the vibrant colours that in real life literally glow but here are a couple.

Please accept my apologies for not posting for a few weeks. August and September are always hard months for me. I lost my beloved Mum and Dad in consecutive months so even the weather affects me, the humid heat of August reminds me of driving up to London every day to visit my Mum in St. Christopher's Hospice and the turning leaves of September of my Dad. Although I am supposed to be 'grown up' and even have a baby Granddaughter of my own, the longing for my parents never diminishes. I really don't envy other people their success or possessions but the people I envy are those who still have parents. I hope they know how lucky they are! But I must think myself so very fortunate to have had such wonderful parents and that's why I miss them so much. The video of Frank Sinatra's Autumn Leaves really sums up how I feel.
