Symondsbury Sizzler!

Well – we’ve been very bad at keeping the site up to date the last few months. To be honest we’ve concentrated more on Twitter and Facebook because, being inherently IT lazy, they are so much quicker to use and we have to do so little thinking to use them! Terrible isn’t it….! If we also used the other social media thingy whatsits as well like Pinterest and….erm…….well … you know….all those other things we keep hearing about but have no idea what they are…….we’d be forever glued to the laptops and would never actually get “out there” doing the stuff we love. Well – that’s our excuse and even though it’s a pretty bad one we’re sticking with it.

So anyway, we’ve been busy through the last few months with all sorts of events from weddings to baby showers to anniversaries and “ladies wot lunches” and even a couple of wakes. Our bunting has been all over the country and back again (thank goodness), our Post Box also had an outing beyond the Dorset borders (dread to think how much the courier charges were for our client – that box is a real Royal Mail cast iron beastie and takes a good strong lad or three to lift it!) and we’ve had lots of orders for tea favours and other bits and bobs. We’ve added some stock to the collection and we’ve lost a few bits along the way as well – some broken, some retired and some just plain lost! C’est la vie.

Here’s just a few photos from a wedding we supplied a few weeks ago. This one is going to be showcased on blog http://lovemydress.net/ in a few weeks time so we won’t say too much but will get back to you with the link – we’re SO looking forward to seeing the professional photos!! These photos were taken whilst we were in the process of setting up the marquee and catering tent (on a very hot day!).

Vintage Fun for Volunteers!

Happy New Year everyone! We do hope this year brings you peace and happiness even though we currently seem to be wading through rain and mud at every turn! It can’t last, honestly…….. So to cheer us up we thought we’d share a few more photos from the lovely event we were involved in back in the summer with Julia’s House in Corfe Mullen.

Children’s charity Julia’s House   (dedicated to supporting children with life-limiting conditions) wanted to say thank you to their volunteers as part of National Volunteers Week by holding a vintage tea at their hospice at Corfe Mullen.

With more than 100 volunteers supporting the charity – taking on work from fundraising to van driving; working in the Julia’s House shops, providing admin work and giving support at the hospice itself – there’s a huge range and potential for volunteering activity that is vital to the charity.

The vintage tea was an opportunity for employees from Julia’s House to say thank you – serving tea and scones to volunteers and showing them the facilities and work that takes place at the Corfe Mullen hospice.

Follow the link HERE to see what Julia’s House had to say about the day and do enjoy the photos below – we just lurve that lion!!! And he didn’t eat too many cream cakes either!
