Crazy for Cars – A-Z Challenge 2021

Shock twist for those expecting craft for C! We’re on Day 3 of the April A-Z Challenge, and I thought I’d share a little snippet of a household pastime! Stu definitely got me into cars; (I don’t even drive!) and now I think we can safely say I’m about as crazy for cars as he is; though in a different way!

A-Z Challenge 2021

As I revealed previously; this month I am sharing a retrospective; or look back, on The Craft Room and Beyond! Beginning with A all the way to Z. Sharing fun content past and more recent, as part of the blogging from A-Z Challenge.

Car Show Season 2020 – Dream 10 Car Garage

Car show season is here once more, though of course due to the pandemic; we don’t have any shows to go to this year. So with that in mind I thought we’d have a little fun, with some favourites, some fun top 10’s and a look back on previous shows… I thought we’d begin by sharing my Dream 10 car garage!

Car Show Season

I’m not a HUGE motoring enthusiast by any means, though of course living with a self-confessed petrolhead; I’ve been to many a car show, and by now have several favourites! What follows is some REAL cars, that I’d have in my dream garage, if money was no object!

This Week #18 – NT is Open, Finishing Books and a Socially Distanced Picnic

We are still largely staying at home; as much as restrictions are lessening each week, so of course, as usual I haven’t been doing much but we did manage to get out, in a socially distanced capacity; a couple of times this week which has been nice!

This Week

And what a week this has been, I’m so shocked at how much the weather has changed in just a few days!

A Day Out to The British Motor Museum

The British Motor Museum is a brilliant and unique car museum; located in Gaydon, Warwickshire, just off J12 of the M40. Stu and I have discussed going for a while now; and as we were recently in Leicester; we were in the perfect position to visit as we headed home to Cornwall.

A day out to...

Of course we’re not a stranger to automotive museums; though Stu hadn’t visited for years and it was a first time visit for me.

Car Show Season, 3 Fab Cornwall Shows 2019

Yes, it’s that time of year again; Car Show Season! I’ve blogged about car shows before, and of course we visited Haynes Motor Museum recently; so it’s no secret that we’re car fans in this house (even me and I can’t drive!)

Car Show Season

This year, instead of individual posts, I thought I’d round everything up into one big post.

In this post, I’ll share some photos and information from the fab shows we’ve attended this year! You can also find some photos on my highlights on Instagram; from the Marie Curie Country and Classics show this past weekend.

Haynes Motor Museum – Somerset 2019 (1)

This year, instead of heading out of the UK, we visited Somerset. There were a few places we had talked about wanting to visit, and having limited time off work; it seemed the perfect choice to have a break away, on a bit of a budget. On our way up to Somerset, we decided to stop at Haynes Motor Museum.

Travel

We booked a B&B in the village on Montacute; and headed up on the Friday, to return on Sunday. Filling three days with about as much activity as we could!

West Cornwall Motor Show -Car Show Season 2018

It’s what we have come to call Car Show Season! I thought I’d share a little about the shows we go to this summer, and what we see! Starting with our first show of the year: West Cornwall Motor Show!

Craft Room and Beyond, Days Out Header

When you are in a relationship with a self confessed petrol-head; cars are a part of everyday life! This in my case means various automotive days out, and some I’ve come to really enjoy! Car show season, is basically July and August down here, and there are some great shows around Cornwall which I’ve come to look forward to every year!

Cross-Stitch Campers – TBT Projects

When I posted my camper print faux blind recently, I thought I’d share another completed project today. I couldn’t believe I hadn’t already shared my fun cross-stitch campers, and it’s totally fitting because I was trying to think of something bright and summery!

This is a project, which (unusually) I made for myself back in 2011!

Throwback Thursday

These cross-stitch campers still hang on the wall in our house today! I still really love this project, and it was a quick, easy cross-stitch design too!
