Looking forward to...

Whilst the cat's away
Sal gets to play!

And I don't do the things in my kitchen that I
ought to be doing!

There's an event happening on

Hence my kitchen looks like a one man fair.
I've done my mock up stall .

Trying to decide what to take and what to leave behind, is not always easy!

But I am now just about packed and ready to go.

At the booty on Sunday I found an old easel,
just right for my revamped sign.
I need to paint it a tasty F&B colour!

I'm slowly getting packed ...

Meanwhile , as well as the easel, at the booty last Sunday, my finds were...

Some yellow shelves , an embroidered tablecloth, an enamel bowl (At 10p, a bargain for the garden!), 35 Ladybird books, two gorgeous bunches of Sweet Peas.
I can't resist Sweet Peas and my own are not yet in flower as I was late sowing them! I wonder why?!

The Ladybird books were in excellent condition and so I grabbed them.

Hope everyone is having a fab week and if you are in the Chipping Sodbury area, on Saturday, it will be lovely to see you!

wonderful finds Sal, very jealous of all those lovely ladybird books (I have a post lined up for my blog on one I found recently). You and Donna are both very organised for this fair, all I have done is put a big pile of bags of stock on the living room floor. Will have to do the mock up soon!!!!

I'm desperate for an easel AND I am not happy that I cannot make the journey AGAIN to V & H!


Good luck at the fair!

Hi Sal
I love yellow at the moment.
I have phases of being able to grow sweet peas, although this year I expect it would have helped if I had planted some!
Lovely looking stall, hopefully I may get to see it on Saturday.

Love the little yellow shelves, I have a little baby bookcase that I might paint that colour! We have GOT to get ourselves along to a boot fair, your finds are great!

Oh lovely, your display will be amazing, so colourful and creative! Love your second hand finds particularly the ladybird books! Hope the fair goes good :)

All things nice...

Hope you have a great time, sorry I can't be in Chipping Sodbury (even if I knew where it is!!)

thank you for your blog comment, looking forward to Saturday (still have not done the "mock up" stall). Thank you for the news that the books will be for sale.. might have to resist buying anything at the moment as it would appear that my home is very full of stuff & people.... xx
