Today saw the last of my workshops at the lovely Turtley Corn Mill! An amazing 19 ladies came along this afternoon, hectic but lovely and very very festive!
Everyone left with a beautiful door garland made by their own fair hands!
There was plenty of time for yapping as well as making!

This afternoons little creative trip was to the lovely Bridge restaurant at Mount Batten in Plymouth (well worth a trip if you haven't already!)
The eleven lovely ladies that joined me there came along to make indoor garlands for their stairs, mantelpieces or wherever they needed some home made festive hanging!
Once again the ladies cleverly produced absolutely stunning garlands, with fresh foliages, berries, cinnamon sticks and orange slices.

Tonight saw the start of a busy week for me!
At The Turtley Corn Mill at Avonwick, I taught a lovely group of ladies how to make Christmas Door Garlands!
The concentration at some points was intense to say the least!
I have to say that the end products of the evening were absolutely fab and I think all of the ladies had a truly festive evening and went home with wreaths they were very proud of!
Roll on tomorrow for the Garland workshop at The Bridge Mount Batten!

To be honest, I left Plymouth for Gloucester on Thursday feeling not a bit Christmassy, but I am pleased to say that I am returning today in the festive spirit!
I'm not sure if it was the holly wreaths everywhere, the pretty houses with festive lights, Bath Christmas Market, or my Christmassy walk around Cheltenham, or perhaps if I'm honest it was the amount of mulled cider and mulled wine I seem to have consumed over the weekend! But I am ready! Roll on Christmas!!!

So this week has been a little busy!
I made my first door garland on Tuesday evening with my lovely evening class ladies, which is now hanging proudly outside my front door!
Then off to The Turtley Corn Mill at Avonwick to decorate their bar and The Bridge Restaurant at Mount Batten on Wednesday, to spruce up their stairway with a lovely garland!
I'm starting to feel Christmassy, but unfortunately have neglected to start any other form of Christmas preparation !! Off to town tomorrow I think!

Tomorrow, I'm leaving my job at H. Watts Florist in Plymouth, to enjoy and explore the world of flowers a little bit more.
Follow me on my new journey so I can keep you up to date with my flowery adventures and new finds!
