Winter solace

Winter solstice sunrise was a foggy one but the day after was clear and glorious.

I sat on a rock and watched the sun creeping up over the hill ready to cast it's golden rays on a sleepy, frosty Hebden Bridge.

Such beauty and solace in nature.

Happy Christmas everyone x

Foggy finds

After being indoors at the exhibition for four days I hadn't had much light or fresh air so yesterday we HAD to have a walk.

There was plenty of air but not a lot of light. A fog had come down and we climbed the hill into it.

But it made the silhouettes crisper

and the depth of field deeper

and because we couldn't see far was saw closer. 

LOOK what we found.

A perfect birds nest made from moss, sheep wool, tiny twigs and blue thread. It was exquisite and made my day.

And as we climbed back down the hill dusk was falling. Our little town was ablaze with lights twinkling behind the trees. 

It was magic.

Hebden Bridge was aglow. 

Dean was reminded of a little film he'd heard about called The Hedgehog In The Fog and we watched it when we got home. If you've never seen it before you must because it's the sweetest thing. Ten minutes of foggy gorgeousness.

Hannah Nunn at Country Living Fair

I just got back from exhibiting at Country Living Christmas Fair in Harrogate. 

 I took my lamps, wallpapers, fabrics and my new golden yellow  daisy meadow chair.

I enjoyed having some wintry foliage on my stand made by the lovely Sarah from Simply by Arrangement

Decorating my sign with the springs of fir and eucalyptus and all sorts of other bits that chose for me was my favourite bit of set up!

 Everyone who stood in front of my stand was bathed in the golden glow of my lamps and it was so nice to meet so many lovely people.

 I was behind the counter bathing in the glow of so many compliments about my work!

 I heard so many stories from customers about how they are enjoying my lamps. One lady said her 94 year old mother has one. She just sits in her chair all day but always asks to have the lamp switched on so she can enjoy it. Some people collect them and have bought over the internet but never in person. It was great to meet them.

Many people recognised my work from the Country Living article and said they read it word for word and were very inspired. I can't ask for more than that.

This show had the perfect audience for me and being among them for four days has really inspired me, reaffirming that I am doing what I am supposed to be doing. That I am shining my light in the world and that people are feeling its glow. I feel very lucky. 

Thanks to everyone who came and said hello and said all those nice things to me and giggled like joyful children while we wrapped up their lamps. It's been lovely. I can't do the show next year but I hope to be back the year after!
