Well, it’s here. Christmas Eve, the bestest, fizziest day ever
This little shop will close at 12pm today for the holidays snd reopen on January 4th at 10am for our fabulous half price sale.
Thank you once again for all of the kindness, support and friendship that you have shared with us in yet another weird, and wonky time.
Who knows what exciting adventures the New Year will bring but I think it’s going to be wonderful .. until then, we hope that you have a peaceful time wherever you are.
With love xx
A few days in that London. It has never been my favourite destination, until recently, when I realised that if you avoid the busy parts, it really is very beautiful and incredibly friendly.
Hampstead has been on my daydream list for many years .. oh my, it was lovelier than I had ever imagined.
I was most fortunate -ish, to have a personal tour guide who, armed with a little book “hidden walks of London” … haphazardly navigated us on a lovely four mile walk around the town (we got lost … more than once)
Taking in some lovely places (the Hollybush was perfect in every way), the secret gardens are so unexpected and beautiful and the Heath even has swimming ponds.
If you do visit, I strongly recommend booking a table at The Spaniards … it is fantastic.
Up and out early the next morning, it was all about Columbia road flower market .. a much visited absolute favourite.
But first we had a lovely walk through the deserted city streets to find St Dunstan in the East church, a truly unique space set within the ruins of a Wren church. This green oasis has benches and a beautiful fountain with greenery draping the walls, it was like a film set.
We couldn’t believe it when a little gospel choir started singing, we had our very own private concert … it was a very lovely memory to have.
In other news .. the shops of Cedar Farm will be open until late on Thursdays throughout December.
check the Cedar Farm website for details.
Have a lovely day
With love xx
Next Wednesday sees our beautiful late night shopping event, when all of the shops here at Cedar Farm will be full of all things Christmas.
Preparations are underway here, well that isn’t actually true, I have many branches, fairy lights , and I have written three signs ….. but it’s a strong start.
We will have winter wreaths and foliage bunches on display, just incase you would like to pre-order and collect nearer the time (that’s a gentle side eye to the lovely gentleman, who, however much fun it is, has for the last few years, been scrabbling around frantically in my stick box on Christmas Eve trying to fashion something festive)
You can sit in the courtyard, by the fire, with mulled wine ( fingers crossed for a dry night), and the cafe are doing their wonderful soup and puddings night (ring them to reserve a table).
We would love you to join us .
In other news, the oh so lovely Lauren from Bloom and Folk magazine, visited recently.
You can imagine our complete surprise when we received this yesterday.
Sorry about the print being a little blurry .. it copied like this.
Thank you so much … we are quite overwhelmed at your kindness.
I hope that you have a lovely day wherever you are.
With love xx
