We had a lovely family day out yesterday, going to a village fete in Buckinghamshire close to where Mum lives- Mum came along too and thoroughly enjoyed herself.
There were lots of traditional stalls and games and a hog roast.
This stall was a big success, Mum and I couldn't help but wonder if any worthy vintage china was being smashed to bits!

I'm not a big car enthusiast, but there is something appealing and beautiful about vintage cars.
I was quite taken with this VW and the stylish blue and cream interior.

There was also a 'White Elephant' stall and a small jumble stall, so I just had to have a look...
...And bring a little bit home...
These 'cornflower' cups and saucers are tiny, but very pretty.
Some retro bedlinen.

My favourite find, a vintage 'Rodwells' soda syphon.

On the way home to mums we went through a beautiful 'chocolate box' village, full of thatched cottages.
But my favourite building was this old chapel in need of some TLC.

What a great restoration project that would be.
Have a great week whatever your'e doing :)
