The Day After

Well the Vintage and Handmade Fair has been and gone, what a lovely day we had yesterday, the sun even shined!

There are lots of lovely pics on several sellers sites and a fab slide show on Flickr.

The stalls were as always impeccably laid out, all full of tempting treasure, my favourite this year was Sal's Snippets, I bought this lovely embroidery frame and brooch and it really was difficult deciding what to buy!

Then I loved the buttons & magnets from Kitsch and Curious,

and my eldest (6) bought the floral brooch and pink ring from Acorn & Will!

Donna Flower's stall was full of vintage fabric and ribbon, after much umming & ahhing I bought these two:

The vintage apron's caught my eye at The Washerwoman's stall, and after going to get more cash (!) I decided I couldn't leave without this one!

And then I was soo happy to see this on The Vintage Magpie's stall as I missed getting one at the Christmas Fair and regretted it!

Thank goodness for the tea table and cake, the carrot and walnut was heavenly and revived me perfectly!

After much fun (and the kids dying to get out!) we had to push off to our other stop: Westonbirt Arboretum, where the kids ran off instantaneously, obviously burning off much hemmed in energy! We just managed to avoid the rain for most of the day, only getting wet as we ran to the car!! So it was a very enjoyable day for all and today it's mostly been watching the Badminton cross country and motoGP on tv!!
