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.
