Calling occupants of interplanetary craft...

date for your diary...Selvedge Winter Fair, dates as below.  
Very happy to say that I will have a stand at the Fair and here is the call out for stand applications.   Look, there is my little 'Blackbird singing' tin, featured on the selvedge poster.

Last week the current husband and I traveled down to Kent and enjoyed the most wonderful evening with Letticeleaf at her beautiful home.   Lin is a cordon bleu cook and her food is certainly sublime.  
Here is Lin and Lettice.

 and her divine food.
 Thank you for a memorably, lovely evening Lin and T.
Next day, up bright and early for a stand at the Decorative Living Fair, Eridge Park, Tunbridge Wells.
Organised by Caroline Zoob and Hetty Purbridge.
Here I am early in the morning...

The photo was taken by Sonia, who was standing at the show.  Sonia has the most beautiful shop in Ticehurst, called

If her exquisite stand was anything to go by, her shop must be stunning.  Full of everything we girls love.   Just look at her stock!
My dear friend Sarah-Jane down the lane came to visit the show and bought me a nosegay, in a decorated jar, with water!   An exquisite posy of wild and garden flowers, which has been a constant source of joy since returning home.   Thank you sweetheart.

Here below are a few snatched pics I took of the Fair.

Everything about the Fair was beautiful, the stands, the setting and even the weather!

 I have been doing some spring cleaning in my Etsy shop
I have dusted and tidied and updated and will be adding more over the forthcoming days.
Last but not least, 
don't forget the Vintage & Handmade Fair at Chipping Sodbury is taking place this forthcoming Saturday.
It is a fabulous Fair and not to be missed, if at all possible.
I will be visiting, can't wait!

Thanks so much for stopping by. x

Ooh, being entertained by a Masterchef cook, what a wonderful treat! I bet an evening with Lin et al was an absolute scream!

Just as well I stayed in this weekend - looks like I saved myself a whole pot of money by not going to that fair!! Those stalls look wonderful, thank you for showing us round.

The reward for getting up early was to have a look round and take great pictures to show us without the crowds. Your tin looks lovely on the flyer.♥
