Tea Tiffin and Tat!! ;-)



Yesterday, four of us met in my lounge, for Tea Tiffin and Tat!!

It was a lovely little get together, with coffee and mince pies...

and a bit of 'show and tell' thrown in!

Amanda brought along some vintage Christmas decorations












And Sarah brought along a vintage quilt!!

Probably dating from the 1930s , this was vintage at its best!

This was history!




















I also showed my old Family Circle Christmas magazines from the 1970s!

I just love these magazines and they never fail to please

when, each December, I sit and read them and look at the old adverts

in their distinctive style.




And finally, I showed this :

The Persephone Diary

I'm a huge Persephone books fan and this diary is simply lovely!

I'll show you more of this another time...

as its worthy of a post on its own!

Tea, Tiffin and Tat will meet again on

12th January, 10.30am...everyone welcome!

Where else at Christmas ...?!!!



If you have not been to a Totnes late night shopping event ,

then you still have time and you must go!!;-)

There are two more Tuesdays for you to go along and savour the flavour!

And make sure that you end up at The Royal Seven Stars,

which is at the bottom of the town.

The best band in the west , 'Black Friday', were there last night

to entertain the crowds.

They seriously good! I've watched them before at Totnes

and also at The Port Eliot Festival.

You can't beat good , live street music and this was a perfect end to the evening.

Black Friday on a cold Tuesday...perfect!

Here they are....

Totnes comes into its own at Christmas!

Being lucky enough to nip down whenever I wish,

I also visited last Friday..and last Saturday too!

Greedy or what ?!

The Friday market never fails to disappoint and Amanda's display looked

fabulously festive!




And then last night, the fun continued as we wandered the streets.




Naturally, 'This and That' is a complete MUST ....




Loads and loads on individual shops welcome you, in this 'non clone' town!

Oooh I love it!






This Blacksmith will be on The Edwardian Farm, tonight!

And then there's Bert and the Animal Folk!

Unique, completely bonkers and a lot of fun!




More music..real musicians in the Market square...fabulous!



Kissy Kissy!! ;-)

I'm really in the Christmas spirit now!

All ready for 'Tea Tiffin and Tat' , this morning!

Back soon!!
