What a difference a day makes, 24 little hours.....

This beautiful Viola, sweetly sitting in a very old and gorgeous cup and saucer was given to me by clare yesterday at the Vintage and Handmade Fair. Thank you so much Clare. x I could have spent a fortune! So many beautiful, desirable pieces, all for sale at the vintageandhandmadefair yesterday. The day was perfect in every way. Wonderful sellers, selling wonderful wares. A great atmosphere with friends old and new meeting up. Here are pics I took and please forgive me that I have not linked each pic and have not taken a pic of every stand.


Oh and by the way Billy Button Nose put in an appearance at the Fair too...he was much admired, which made him very happy.






















Thank you michele , jayne and everyone who worked so very hard in making the Fair such a roaring success. It was a great day and I am looking very much now to the Vintage and Handmade Textiles Fair in July.

Feeling pretty whacked today, so I have spent the day uploading items onto Etsy (boy it is a slow process) Here are a few pieces freshly placed in the shop!Thank you so much for stopping by. x

Goodness, I would have been there from the minute it opened and you would have had to drag me away when it closed. Glad to hear you had such a lovely day.

So many things that might have come home with me. I remember wanting a doll in a carrycot like the one on display. I think I might have got the carrycot but not the doll. xx
