A little taste of Spring!!

I think today had a little touch of spring in the air and how nice was it to feel a little bit of warm sun.  Everytime the postman arrives he brings so many catalogues of new seasons clothes, gardening, and everything for your home.  But the one that I spend ages looking through and dreaming of how my garden should look is Sarah Raven’s catalogue, last year I grew her lovely wild flowers and it was a real success and I was able to take large bunches of flowers to my fairs last summer to brighten up my stall.  This year I am going to grow as many as possible and lets hope that we get the weather to see them in full bloom a lot quicker than we did last year.

Now on to other things, I always have an idea of the type of items I want  to sell on my stall, but get frustrated when I cant find them, I think it gets more difficult all the time, but tomorrow I am off to my favourite auction, one that is amongst the cowsheds and sells such a variety of things from tools to plants and then amongst the odd item there are little gems that I can pick up, things that have been laying around on farms never used that I can bring back to life I am only hoping I am going to find some tomorrow. This is what I dream of finding somehow I just can't see it happening



Last week I started doing my first fairs of the year, starting at my favourite one at Wisborough Green in Sussex, it was very busy and lovely to meet fellow blogger Charlotte from a Cottage in Totteridge, and really hope to see her again at Village Vintage in Plumpton. We stayed with friends and went home on Saturday via Devizes where I had a stall at the Vintage Bazaar at Devizes, lots of people, but unfortunately or fortunately I had sold quite a bit at Wisborough Green so my stall was a little depleted.  But here are a few photos of my stall

I have also been busy sewing this lovely bags from old french linen and lined with pretty vintage french fabrics.
 Now really looking forward to the Vintage Emporiumm at Cuckfield in Sussex this Friday should be fun, such lovely people it is a delight to sell in Sussex.
I hope to find time this week to read some of the lovely blogs out there, but if you do come across my blog I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment
