wisdom can come from all kinds of random places

Hello all,
I'm back from London, the pop up shop is over and surely 
I can say that it has been a learning curve for me 
(and for my daughter too...).
It was great to finally meet some of my readers and bloggers, 
to hear your feedback and words of support and most of
 all it was great to see all these beautiful objects, I selected for
 the occasion, under one concrete roof! 
Surely a good kick for me to organise another pop up next year.
I'd like to thanks all the people who support me and this project
 but most of all my daughter Anita (age 7) which was a real 
darling and made us (parents) really proud surprising us with 
her ability to run the cafeteria!
Also a big hug and thank you to Jo for being such a wonderful 
helper and for making me the happy owner of one of her pileas
A big thank you for all of you who made it despite the beautiful 
sunny day on Saturday and the heavy rain on Sunday! and to 
all of you that couldn't make it but sent me messages, emails, 
linked, talked, posted about it and so on : THANKS!!!

Many of you asked me if I have the intention to do a pop up on line,
I will.
Watch this space.

Head to my Flickr to see pics of the pop up, I'll add even more soon. 
I also put loads on Instagram find me as AT_KNOTS.

Frankie magazine I've got from Elisabeth, thanks Elisabeth!

Very sorry to have missed it - a sick daughter derailed my plans. I've been reading your blog, and followed all the interviews and was looking forward to it. Sigh!
