Catch up!

Long time no blog again.  I don't know where the time goes.  Actually, right now I do - all this moving house business is very time consuming; especially if you have a tendancy to be messy (cough) and you have to keep tidying up before people come round to view.  We are making progress; but I won't say too much for fear of putting the mockers on it all.  Still need to find our house though, but there are possibilities at least.

Anyway, enough of that.  It's been so long since I last blogged; I think it is better if I let the pictures do most of the talking.  I have been to 2 lovely vintage fairs, firstly Northampton, which was fantastically organised as always by Ann and Trevor.  It was great to catch up with the other stallholders there and it is such a fun day out for me.

Sorry about the poor photography as usual, one day I wll get it right.

Then I did a new fair in Hampstead Town Hall; which went well, but I didn't take any photos.  Shame, as it was a beautiful venue!

Now for some other things we have been doing:

Walking the dog around a local lake which has had the most beautiful flowers this spring.

A trip here last week, to see the Queen's bling on display.  Sadly, no free samples.  Also met some Beefeaters and the ravens, which make the most strange noises when they call to each other.  (The ravens, not the Beefeaters!)

And last, but not least, I have fitted in a little vintage shopping:

A wooden sewng basket and some crochet work.

Lovely 1950's/60's children's books.

Another jug I couldn't resist!

A couple of ebay purchases - alphabet tiles, and this little wooden horse on wheels, who is rather the worse for wear, but I love him anyway!

A pair of china terriers.

 Anyway, back to the internet search for a new home.  Hopefully, I will be back to catch up again soon.
