As I mentioned in my previous post I am terribly behind with all my news and photos.
A long time ago (or at least it seems) we had our More Than A Mama Pimms and Pamper Evening.

It was a lovely evening and all the stalls were fabulous.  Unfortunately the night coincided with an England game in the World Cup (you can just see a glimpse of an England cookie below!) so it wasn't as well attended as previous events, but we had a fabulous night!

As per usual my photos of my own stall were appalling!  I managed to salvage a few but you can only see a bit.

I went for an afternoon tea theme with loads of pretty cups and saucers and my Nana's old embroidered table cloths.
I was selling boxes of afternoon teas with cupcakes, lemon drizzle cakes, macarons and scones.  With one of my usual flashes of brilliance I decided to add a small pot of jam to each box.  So I bought my cute little jars, spent an afternoon making jam and came out with (granted very delicious) strawberry jam that had cost me £1.20 a (4oz) pot just to make!  
This is why I would never win the apprentice! 
I get too carried away with nice ideas and lose track of the costs!
Anyway I thought I would show you some of the other stall holders who were there.

 This is Stealing Candy with gorgeous homeware, more of which to come.

The always fabulous Heartfelt Handmade.

Gorgeous baby accesories from IslaBBaby.

Beautiful hand made candles from Heather Emily

Funky kids clothes from  Rockabye-Baby

 I absolutely love this chair from Boxing Clever .

 How fabulous are these up-cycled knecklaces from Oh Sew Vintage?

 Quirky ceramics and illustrations from Katy Leigh.

 More vintage teacups from Stephanie Rose Tiaras and Flowers, this time planted with pretty flowers.

 Fabulous hand embelished shoes from Lucypeachslice.

There were other stalls there but unfortunately I don't have their details.  Our other More Than A Mama members were Richard Roscoe Photography (more than a papa) and Sharon from Virgin Vie
I'll leave you with a picture of some scones for my 'afternoon tea in a box' which would be lovely with some strawberry jam on, now where could I get me some of that?

Oh I lied, a quick ps!  Head over to Torie Jane for a pretty bakeware giveaway.  On second thoughts don't, because I really want to win!


  1. Hi, first time I've read your blog......what fantastic cakes, it almost seems a shame to have to cut into them, and those scones look delicious..........I completely understand how costs can run away, that's the reason I only make for friends and family.......I'd be broke otherwise.
