The telephone rings and a soft, lilting Scottish voice on the other end says “Is that sweetbabyveg ?”
And little bubbles of joy rush from my toes to my head and “My heart is like a singing bird” because here it is, the moment when all aspects of me which had nowhere to go and were channelled into my blog have finally become something real, something with a name to it. And that name is SWEETBABYVEG!
The lady on the phone is waiting for an answer, so I cry an enthusiastic….”YES”. This one little word of acknowledgement of my new identity wipes away the sturm und drang of the past two years and fills me with hope and happiness.
“Are you still there?” It’s the lady on the phone again. So I do it, I place my first order for stock for the next stage of the sweetbabyveg story.
Would you like to see what I have ordered?
I enjoyed looking at your inspiring and colourful display out at Cowslip yesterday!
Thank you Karen. It really seems to fit in with the Cowslip ethos and adds a real splash of colour and fun to the start of a dull April.
Fabulous I love nut scene colours can’t wait to see all you scrummy garden goodies. Xxx
Thanks Sarah. I thought about you as I was putting it up! x
I really like the photo collage. The colors are all so vibrant and clear. You are talented with your photography.You must have a really nice camera. You can see that you love taking pictures. I can’t wait to see what you are doing in the garden this year.
I am excited by all these lovely colored things that you are going to use. I will wait with anticipation to see what you produce.
Ooooh–being a little mysterious, huh? What fun–I’m willing to wait to see what comes next but I hope we don’t have to wait too long! And, as usual, I am in awe of your photos. Really, who but you makes a ball of twine look like a super model?
You always make me laugh! I thought you would like those salvaged mill bobbins and I love that they are being used for a new and exciting purpose.
What fabulous pictures!! The twine is fantastic – but the photography just makes them so out-of-this-world.
Thank you so much! I really enjoy the photography and am trying to become more technically skilled.
Beautiful photographs, Karen!! ~amy
Thank you so much Amy. Coming from you that is a real compliment.-Karen
