It’s that time of the year again, and we made our annual visit to Haddo House’s Christmas Fair. A chance to Christmas shop, or indeed, to treat yourself!
I made another quick trip to the new collectibles shop and bagged myself a Deco Marcasite ring, it’s fabulous! I do love the way Marcasite sparkles in the right kind of light. I think it’s more special than diamonds. I have just one other vintage Deco ring, I’ll have to take some pictures of them. I’m an absolute Marcasite addict I tell you.
It was a bit of a family reunion too. I bumped into several castle work colleagues out for a look around, as well as having a good chin wag with some of the Haddo staff. Also managed to sell several raffle tickets for them too! You can take the girl out of the castle…
I also bagged an early Christmas present from the Mum, another bear by Sue Quinn (one of my favourite bear artists). His name is Charley, and he’s actually a very clever puppet. Along with this, I got another hedgehog for my collection. This time it’s dressed is a warm duffel coat and scarf! I like to think of the hedgehogs as an extension to having cats….maybe next year I’ll progress to a large sized one with an even more elaborate outfit!
If you’re intriguied by the hedgehogs and friends, you can check out Sue’s website. She is now also blogging, so a good opportunity to see what she has been making lately. Her designs are utterly gorgeous
Time for a walk around the park, photos and home. A beautiful day at Haddo.
