Gorgeous fairs for the weekend!

Well I am not going to apologise but I am going to advertise two beautiful vintage fairs at the weekend. One in Hartley Witney in Hampshire
 (returning to my routes and in fact to a place where I had my first date with Richard my OH) and another one in the delightful town of Dunster in Somerset.
The first one is Vintage Bazaar in Hartley Witney on 22 September starting at 10.00 pm.
There are the most beautiful stalls and one of my favourite  is Theo & Bernice where I love absolutely everything they sell.
Ali from Betty and Violet her items are so beautiful romantic well words can not describe how lovely her stall is.

Chloe has the most beautiful stall it is just a perfect delight and all you want to do is buy buy buy

Sam with her lovely candles made in vintage cups, jelly moulds etc. the smell of her candles will fill the hall.

Jacquie who has the most amazing stall, full of vintage goodies and has a stall at the renown Country Living Fair

Hesta with her beautiful fabrics and manniquins I just love her stall and have bought some lovely pieces of fabric from her.

I know that this is only a few of the stalls and everyone is a delight, so it really is a must for this Saturday, but you know what i have left the last of my favourite stalls to last and that is Lizzie and Jack's stall so many lovely things mostly from France that you definitely wont want to miss it!

I of course have a stall, so please if you are in the area come and say hello. I have lots of lovely new things for sale.

Am I mad but Sunday will also see me at Dunster which is a lovely town in Somerset, once again this will be worth a visit so hope to see you there.

Hope if you can you will visit these great fairs I can assure you it will be worth it!

Trip to Sussex

We certainly picked the right week for our trip to Sussex, wall to wall sunshine, we just couldn't believe our luck after the awful summer we have had. 
Our first stop was to Petworth where we visited the Hungry Guest for bread and coffee,

 we then went on to visit Petworth House,

stunning house full of art and statues.
but I just loved the servants quarters especially the chef's living room.
 It was then off to the  barn, it was everything that it said, beautiful position and beautifully furnished and equiped the perfect start to our mini break.
Next day we started off early to visit Ardingly Antique Fair to try and hunt out bargains and then visited Standen House in East Grinstead which was full of William Morris fabrics and wallpapers it was a house that you feel you could curl up and read a book in front of the fire.

Thursday arrived with lots of sunshine for the Brocante Fair in Wisborough Green in Sussex, here are a few photos of the stalls, everyone had such gorgeous things, and one of the most loveliest fairs I have attended.

Today has seen me busy making more things for the fairs this month.  I am very tempted to keep this one would look so nice in my bathroom!

Hope to catch up on all your lovely blogs very soon.
