Yesterday Mr.TabbyRoo and I headed off to the cotswolds to set up our stall at the Cotswolds Vintage Fair. It's our third time at this venue and we still got lost on the way! We set up our stall with not a lot of time to spare, so only time for a quick look round at the beautiful vintage and handmade that was on offer, there was vintage spanning the eras and the handmade lovelies on offer were gorgeous.
It was a brilliant day, and unbelievably busy, especially when the coach party dropped by! A big thank you to Ali for all her incredible hard work.

The view from the rear of the hall.

I sold a few of my altered bottles so think I will have to get a more ready for future fairs, I enjoy making these and love rummaging through boxes of stuff, some of which I've had for years. I knew it would come in useful one day !

I didn't get a chance to chat to stallholders and fellow bloggers  during the day( I know that is not the objective, but it's always good to catch up!)as it was so busy, nice to see Tonia-Poppycorkhill  who had and interesting stall next to us.Hopefully get the chance to see some of you at our next fair which is in Northampton...

Enjoy the bank holiday weekend Linda xxx

It's been an age since I  have visited blogland to post or read, I have missed catching up on what the blogging world is up to. It's been a hectic summer, but I have to say probably one of the best I've had as we had family come to stay that I haven't seen for a long time. My sister who hasn't been to England for two years, my niece who hasn't been over for twenty years and my  nineteen year old great niece who has never visited England.  We wanted to show them, especially my great niece a good cross section of what England had to offer, and I'm pleased to say she was not disappointed (apart from when I offered her a scotch egg!) and said she would love to return.

We visited Oxford and the beautiful Christchurch college and the very busy Turf Tavern where she had her first taste of lager and lime.

We went to Warwick castle and of course spent hours in London sightseeing and shopping, I have to say Mr.TabbyRoo was very patient with six women shopping and never being able to get in his own bathroom!

The 'Shard' in progress.
After visiting us they went down to my brother in Sussex  for a taste of the country.

It's come around very quickly to our next fair which is The Cotswolds Vintage Fair.

A few new pieces that will be coming with us....

I've also managed to make some more cushions and some altered bottles, so that's last months and this ones Monthly Make sorted

Our next fair after that is on home territory, organised by Ann and Trevor.

I'm  off to the depths of the cellar to start sorting, hope some of you can make it on Saturday xx
