Sorry it has been a while since I have updated this site but so much has been happening since May! My twin sister and I were lucky enough to be chosen to take part in the BBC programme, ‘Bargain Hunt’ which was filmed in Greyabbey and Belfast over two days and will hopefully be shown later in the year.  This gave us the opportunity to meet the presenter and antique expert Tim Wonnacott who was very friendly and loved his box which I based around his home town and working life.

I’ll keep you informed when it will be shown on the telly!!

Just like this post and comment ‘red’ or ‘green’ and your name will go in the draw which will take place TOMORROW NIGHT (Monday 20th April at 8.00 p.m. GMT) This is open to all countries so get commenting. Sharing is not necessary (but it would be nice!) As always, this has NOTHING to do with Facebook but is a giveaway to thank you for following my work.
