It is now just two days until my stint at the Bath Christmas Market, I can't wait to see you there: Dec 4th-9th from 10 am on Bath Street (by bhs). 
I am also very excited to show you some new pieces that I have made for the occasion...

This bunny/hare is an image I designed for some Christmas cards last year, the card was very popular so I decided to try it in silver and fell in love with it. 

'It was the middle of winter and snowflakes were falling like feathers...'

Hand painted silver baubles to wear with your favourite Christmas jumper!

And lastly some gifts for the boys. I hope you like...

Market Style

I am both excited and terrified at having my own chalet at Bath Christmas Market for the first time this year, it's a pretty big deal! 
Mother A. has been helping keep me calm and put a lot of love into making me this most snazzy market trader apron to wear. She must have faith that I'm going to do well as the cash pocket is pretty spacious :D

Cloudy with a chance of snow

This last weekend has seen an abundance of cloud pendants, some new snowflake pendants and wedding rings for a happy London couple getting wed this month. 

Oh and a trip to Wells carnival...

I'm a terrible blogger!!!!

So it's fair to say I have been somewhat absent of late. There have been some personal issues to deal with and I have been incredibly busy getting ready for the Bath Christmas Market, so no time for blogs and bits I'm afraid. I think it's fair to say that for the foreseeable future typically.pretty.english will have to go back to being a shop blog. I will keep you all up to date with markets and new projects but the personal side will have to go on hold for the time being xx

Visit - Love Local Bristol

The new season of Paper.Scissors.Stone has opened and along with Made in Bristol and The Print Shop. Unfortunately I was not able to attend the opening night bash but here are some photographs from the evening and it looks like a great time was had by all. Be sure to go and check out the shops at Quakers Friars, Cabot's Circus as you will find many talented folk selling wonderful things.

typically.pretty.pinned 10/13

I don't know about you but I am loving that autumn is here. Don't get me wrong I'm not a huge fan of grey rainy days and I love summer, especially when it is like the one we have just had, but autumn is possibly my favourite. Most folk talk of new beginnings with the start of a new year or the coming of spring, but for me September has always be a time for fresh starts. I think it comes from it being the start of the new school year. I like the chill in the air and the promise of fairy lights and fireworks and party season on it's way.

Anyway, here are some autumnal pins I have been looking at...

Explore52 - 34-37

I have 4 weeks of #explore52's for you today and they show a small change from late summer into early autumn. 

First of all we have this little gem of old advertising on the side of a city centre building, it could quite easily be missed if you weren't looking but I happen to think it's rather lovely. 

Secondly is this corner of the Abbey which is a little bit hidden. The gothic curves and windows look particularly lovely here in the late summer sun. 

Next is the Parade Gardens that are in the heart of the city, with beautiful statues, views of the city and a bandstand and deck chairs it is easy to see why locals and tourists like to lunch here in the sunshine. 

Lastly there are a couple of snaps of the fabulous folk who descend upon Bath each September for the annual Jane Austen Festival. I love to see them parading around our Georgian city in their finery, heading for the Guild Hall or Pump Rooms in the footsteps of Ms. Austen herself.

My Studio

Worked on a commission piece today, my first Christening bangle. I have to say that I'm pretty darned pleased with it.

Late Summer Fun in Pictures

So my friends here are some pictures of my movements over the last few weeks, I have been taking a break from the computer to get in preparation for the impending Christmas making season. To get in the right headspace I have been making plenty of time to be with good friends on the halcyon days of summer. I have made some wonderful memories and here are a few snaps of trips to the coast, spontaneous camping, Gromit spotting and playing in park with little people.

Some very special days with special people xx
