 Hope everyone has enjoyed the Jubilee celebrations, what an amazing few days.

We haven't done many fairs at all this year, but did have a stall at the Blighty Boutique Vintage and Handmade fair , it was a great day, even though in true British fashion it rained !
A few pics of our stall.....

Jo from Hesta Nesta was next to us with her beautiful stall full of vintage and antique treasures....

Wend of Ticking Stripes had a great vibrant display....

I did buy another Quality Street tin from Wend....

Which has  been added to the growing collection

I can only think my fascination with these comes from childhood, when I used to keep stamps in an old QS tin and of course used the shiny wrappers in collages.
Only a couple of days left of the holidays and I am really enjoying being at home after being so busy and visiting family. I am quite appreciative of the fact that teenagers sleep in late, and like the peace and quiet when I get up and can have what Tv or music I want on, or even complete silence!
Don't forget you can always visit my facebook page Vintage Alice 

This image comes from one of the first vintage photos that I bought from a shop in Southport, one of those sprawling vintage/antique shops that are so stuffed full you wonder if they actually sell anything, but you can find some little gems.

 She is the fairy that I use in my tiny bottles and I also made a large'captured' one to keep.

Enjoy the rest of the week, whatever you're doing Linda xx

Thought I might start posting some pictures from my home. I don't know about you but I love looking around peoples houses, at the decor and what interesting things they have. They are often a good reflection of their character. My home at times can become a bit chaotic in places as there always seems to be lots going on, things being made or boxes being moved in or out to a fair or our stand at Daventry.

Starting with the smallest room in the house....the small decorated canvas is one that I made, the cherub was from a boot sale.

The mirror was from a boot sale and the little wire holder was from Homesense, sometimes you  can find some unique bits and pieces there.

The wallpaper is called'Vintage' from B&Q, my daughter chose it for her bedroom and we decided to carry it through.

Some vintage cups that I use to keep cotton wool and bits and bobs in.

We opened our Pigeonhole display with a pink and blue theme, we have now had a total change of stock to gold, amber and green....If you are near Daventry pop in for a mooch, there is a tea room as well. Linda x

The excitement is building for the Vintage Jumble that is going to be held on Saturday. We have been sorting and pricing, everything is going to be very cheap on our stall, we need to clear out, the house is bursting at the seams!

Prices on our stall will start at 50p!

Although I have the feeling we will probably end up doing a bit of bargain shopping ourselves........

Hope to see you there  Linda xx
