making for Hay while the sun shone

on my day off between the class in the mill valley
and pootling northward to Bonny Scotland [it is]
i was taken under the wing[s] of my friends Sally and Ben
and spirited in a magical four-wheeled jellybean
to Hay on Wye
described here most succinctly by someone else

and below in pictures

you can turn your whirled upside down
buy a basket full of bambis [eek]
or beetle time to the music
while wearing a crown of light
find a treasure in one of the bazillion bookshops
 and if you are hungry
eat lovely tapas at Tomatitos on Lion Street
and then pootle along a skyroad
for a quick photoshoot
with garments from "now" and "then"
thank you Sally for your patience!
it was nose for north
and now
i'm off to work


  1. Sounds like you're having a heavenly time. And looks that way too! Any tips on packing for the Scottish weather or for the Sandra Brownlee class? Just wondering... Enjoy!

    1. four seasons in a day so far...bring a sweater for the cool evenings
      as to Sandra's class, i know as much as you do. best advice is to come "prepared for adventure" :)

    2. Love your advice re: Sandra's class. I'll be sure to be prepared for anything. Thanks!

  2. thank you for the pics, vicarious travel is better than none at all!

  3. The performance of Boogie Street is the most beautiful I've ever heard.....dress is amazing on a stunning magical journey

  4. All I can say is Wow! to it all- you have the best life!
    and so deserving of it . What a dress- everything you make is a stunner.

  5. oooh...I love the Crown of Light! And your beautiful dresses :o) Enjoy your travels!

  6. I am intrigued by the final photo. Are those eucalyptus leaves?

    And I agree with over the rainbow about the beautiful dress and woman in it.

    Be well.
