Bumbling along ......

The Bee And The Lily .

" Buzz went the bee with a merry Din.
" Who's there" ? cried the lily, her cup within.
" You're gossip, the bee with a tale so funny,
to hum in your ear while you brew your honey ;
But you must not repeat it for love or money !
Buzz went the rogue , with a merry din,
as the lily opened and let him in .
" Why lily I vow its a palace quite,
This kitchen of yours so warm and white ,
And such fine honey! Now might I venture
To sniff for a moment, to ..... taste, to sip 
A morsel merely to moisten my lip,
without incurring thereby your censure?"
" Oh said the lily pray eat your fill."
So the bee set to work with a right good will:
He fluttered and buzzed , he tried and tasted,
Nothing was missed and nothing wasted;
He ate and he ate ~ it was really funny
To see him swallow such heaps of honey .....

( Thomas Westwood )

We would like to start this little post with a big 
'Hello' !
We have been bumbling along very busily and we have lots to
tell you dear folks ..
Pop on the kettle , pull up a comfy chair 
and we will begin .
Tonight at approximately 6 pm , local time ,
our very own website will be launched..  
We are of course very exited about this !
It will be a chance for you folks to view at your own leisure
our lovely and exclusive gift wear and of course quirky 
hand painted / old furniture..
And of course if there's any thing that catches your eye.
Well , just let us know we are more than happy to reserve !

Whilst we have been busy 'summer' has arrived !
And its lovely having our welcoming doors open 
once again..

The shops looking mighty pretty indeed.
Come on in your very 
Welcome !

Quirky pieces for that ' individual home ' !

" Weddings "
Its that time of year !
"Some thing old , some thing new , some thing borrowed 
some thing blue "...

Its a little while since 'Bee' has made an appearance
 on our blog.
So here she is too !

 Happily playing among those wild buttercups !
She's a very special dog ..
And we are looking forwards to her visits in the shop ..
We have lots more to tell you , but we will save this for next time..

Jack Frost's out and about !

Dear Readers,
It feels an age since we've had time 
to post ...
Busy 'little bees' we have jolly well been !
We would like to start with this beautiful
little poem , which is so fitting , as its 
cold, frosty and jolly chilly today ..
Brrrr !

Jack Frost
" Look out look out!
Jack Frost is about!
He's after our fingers and toes;
And all through the night.
The gay little sprite
Is working when nobody knows.

He'll climb each tree,
So nimble is he,
His silvery powder he'll shake:
To windows he'll creep
And while we're asleep,
Such wonderful pictures he'll make.

Across the grass
He'll nimbly pass,
And change all its greenness to white:
Then home he will go,
And laugh ho "Ho ho ho!
What fun I have had through the night !"

Cicely E.Pike .

Love is in the air just now too !
The shops full to the brim 
with wonderful valentines gifts / ideas 
for those you love..
Come take a peak .....

Although we are in the thick of winter time still.
There are signs of spring time every where just now too !
New life here and there..

Beautiful , snow drops, crocus
 and even Daffodils are 
starting to show their pretty faces..
Yep it will be spring time before you know it.

The bees have been away buying this last week, so watch out 
for the most beautiful new stock arriving each 
week .
We are also very excited to be going out on line in the near future 
with a website and local delivery service!!!... 
We promise we wont be away to long next time..
Happy February one and all..
Keep cosy and warm .
Hugs and kisses.

"The hedgerows flaunt their harvest
in every meadow nook.
And brambles by the road side
make blackberries by the brook.
~ From dewy lanes at morning,
the rose-hips ripe to pick...
and noon time brings the pretty butterflies, 
then all the hedges are a flutter ~
By all these lovely tokens 
September days are here..
With summers best of winter and 
Autumns best of cheer"....
September by Helen Jackson.

Its been a' busy bee' summer,
 for us at The Hive.. 
August seemed to pass us by, with the blink of an eye.
We would first of all like to thank you all
for your very kind visits on here and in the shop!
We can honestly say, our first year has
been pretty splendid all round...

~ And as September arrives and we start to think of 
bidding summer farewell..
We are greeted with the most beautiful 
Blackberry bushes are simply laden..
Its Septembers promise of the beautiful autumn 
to follow..

Bumble bee's most favorite time of year..

Natures abundant harvest...

We have lots and lots of new pretty stock arriving
each day..
Want to take a peek ?

~ Well come on in then...

The shops looking quite enchanting..

With lanterns and twinkly fairy lights ...
Perfect for those cosy night's drawing in
~  little by little ...

We also have the most delightful sofa! 
~ its from the 'Alice in Wonderland' range..
Ooh my , what do you think ?

The' Bumble bee's' have simply fallen in
love with this..

Our next little postie,
will bring you Halloween with all its magic ...
There will be Jack 'o' lanterns and black cat's and of course 
witches shrieks in our winow display's once more !!
Ooh can't wait !!
