I am quite late in blogging about the fabulous Northampton Vintage Fair, which took place on Saturday, but I have had 18th Birthday celebrations and a school production to work on, where I've been helping to costume 105 small children as various insects, so feel I have had a good excuse! I can see that fellow bloggers have done a great job in reporting on the day, which was organised so well by Ann and Trevor.
I bought this great 1950s magazine rack for my eldest daughter, from a fellow stallholder, Mr.TabbyRoo pulled a bit of a strange face when he saw it, but as I thought, she loved it.
I made some 'keepsakes' for my daughters birthday....
A 'captured' Georgian style fairy.
I bought a digital collage sheet from the very talented 'Itkupilli' and used the different figures throughout, presents, tags, and cake.
Ruby loved this present. I bought the cage months ago at auction , not knowing what I was going to do with it. Then gradually ideas came together.
The 'captured' fairy is holding a tiny key, and suspended from a pearl rope inside the cage.
The figures all 'appeared ' later on the cake...
One of the tags I made for her had a picture of the actress Sophie Tucker,.with one of her quotes written on the back:-
From birth to age eighteen, a girl needs good parents. From eighteen to thirty five, she needs good looks. Fronm thirty five to fifty five she needs a good personality. From fifty five on she needs good cash!
