Yesterday evening we fought our way through the Bath Christmas market on our way to a friend's private view at the city art gallery. Although the market grows larger year on year it doesn't seem to improve in the goods that are for sale. There seem to be far more food stalls than in previous years and people chomping away as they wandered about. There was nothing there that tempted me to stop and buy.
Perhaps if I were starting from scratch I might have bought some decorations, but I keep my Christmas things from year to year and already have more than enough.
The paper stars stall was rather lovely.
The art gallery was crowded, as is always the case at a private view. I'll visit another day when it isn't so busy. Sally's show is a dog lover's delight!
There are dog portraits of all sizes to enjoy, from very small to very large.
If you've ever owned a dog you will recognise some of the expressions!
What's not to love about a dog with a long nose?!
It was pretty grim to return to a dog-less house after this show.
