There's a brand new dance but I don't know it's name...

I had a lovely few hours visiting, instead of standing,at the Vintage & Handmade Fair ,
 Chipping Sodbury, Gloucestershire yesterday.

Here are Jayne Country Cottage Chic and my dear friend Michele of Cowboys & Custard
organisers of the Fair.  
Thank you lovely ladies for organising such a fabulous Fair.

 Oh goodness, how I enjoyed myself.   I only went around the Fair once and spent the whole time nattering to all my friends and buying a few little bits and pieces.
Here is Donna Flower and her lovely Mum...If you need a vintage textile, Donna is your girl, as you probably already know.
So, to some of the trinkets I managed to spend my pennies on...

This sweet little book from Donna.

Lovely Letterpress from Wild Ink

 Rusty old tins, which I am looking forward to doing something with.

 Ribbons, glass headed pins and a bit of kitsch plastic

here are the pins, they are so pretty

 The fabulous and utterly unique Jess Quinn 

 A pack of softly worn quilt scraps from beautiful Ali of  Betty & Violet

 and a Fairy Chair from Thrifty & French   My current husband slowly shook his head in disbelief, when he clocked this teeny weeny little chair.   I told him it was a photography prop...hee hee.

 So, just a few of the incredibly beautiful, talented stands and makers that I managed to take a snap of. 

Talking of old tins, here is a mixed media collage artwork that I have just popped into Etsyland

and a textile birdy screen printed brooch.

Finally, Marna over at Little A Designs asked if would take part in her 'Meet the Artist' Q and A.
I was so pleased to be asked, but goodness it was so difficult to answer those questions.
I hope you enjoy reading a bit about me and my background etc.

Lovely day here, feeling really chippa!
Thanks for stopping by. x

It was lovely to meet you at the vintage fair and I'm so delighted and honoured to be on your blog!
It really was a lovely day and my two little girls spent my profits at the fairy lady's stand! We came home and made a fairy garden which was lovely after such a busy few days getting ready.

Your blog is a joy as always, Lucia from Wild Ink xx
