*Busy weekend & an unexpected opportunity*

It has been soooo busy at Vintage Amethyst HQ over the last few weeks
that I'm working weekends too!
I had the day off yesterday though as there was an art fair on at our local Arts Centre ~ 'A Right Royal Do' to celebrate the Queens birthday!

It was a fun day, we had a few friends that had stalls so it was lovely to see them there.
We even got a chance to sneak off with one friend & had a glass of red in a lovely wine boutique in town! Oooh afternoon wine, I haven't done that for a long time!!!!
Then we had to rush home in time for another friend (who had been at the art fair doing a cultural talk thing!) to pop by & visit as we hadn't had a chance to catch up with her at the fair.
Anyhoo today I just had to catch up on orders & James had work to do too so after lunch off we set for the business unit.
Shortly after I got there a lovely lady arrived on our doorstep with an exciting proposal for me.
She had found me online & realised that Vintage Amethyst HQ was literally down the road so when she saw our shutters open she popped on by!
It sounds like so much fun but is only in early day stages so I will let you know near the time what is going on!

So today has been busy & exciting, a perfect work day even if it is a Sunday.
Oh & I even managed to get the front window & door cleaned inbetween rain showers!!!

Oh & if you are wondering about the above photo was taken on my iPhone using Instagram as I didn't have the camera with me at the unit!

Hope you are all having a super duper weekend ...
