I feel love for the first time and I know that it's true, I can tell by the look in your eyes...

Hello!

I visited thecountryliving Fair at Islington, London for the first time yesterday.
Just in case you have never been, here are a few pics...
Met up with friend Jacquie (Kittys).  
Here is the lovely lady herself, in front of her stand.


Totally in love with the original 50's/60's kitchen cabinets,
sold the first day!
Another lovely lady janconstantine  and her fabulous embroidered cushions and hangings.


Gorgeous, gorgeous things to buy...as you would expect.

Views across the fair...


 A really great day.
Jacquie is now on her way to have a stand at the Glasgow Country Living Fair.
I don't know how she does it, as my legs were having trouble coping with a one day visit!
I suppose I spend too much time on my honed and toned, dimple free derriere
(ahem, well I can dream),
making the likes of these ...






All made with beautiful handmade fabrics, Liberty Lawns and vtg materials.
Have a great week...
Thank you so much for stopping by. x

Pity I don't still live in London :( This is when you have to have a vast amount of cash, can you imagine it? How much you would buy (sigh) xx

Couldn't go this year because of Elsie the dog, but it doesn't look too crowded for a Sunday.

Love the expression of the dog on the box. He's just so clever for getting up there. xx
