Ok , so what did I find on Saturday?
Amongst all that shenanigans, I was able to escape
my reins and have a fun frolic around the lovely stalls!
I'm always on the look out for 'props', for my little classroom
and I was delighted to find this gorgeous vintage fabric
on Donna's stall.
It might be a piece of old fabric to many, but to me it is
full of inspiration, full of story telling and poetry!
I can't wait to use it with my pupils!
But until then, it is draped, strategically, over a painted chair,
for all to admire!
I also found this lovely book which, inside,
sports a vintage, picture dictionary!
I have to admit that I already own one of these gorgeous, scented,
patchwork bags from Hen ...the gentle aroma
of Lavendar wafts my way when I flop into my armchair, each evening.
So, I bought another for my teaching room...just to keep the air smelling sweet!
And what did I Spy next?
'Wild Fruits and Fungi' , from Lesley, has now been added to my mini collection.
It's one of the best range of books which was ever published for children,
in my opinion! Fun for adults too!
I have a 'thing' about old and interesting book covers
and I found these on Jayne's stall.
I like to think that many 'happy hours' are spent in my teaching room
and I hope that I'm nothing like the title of the book on the left!!
This little rabbit brooch came from Woo's gorgeous stall.
And right opposite me, was the smelliest stall of the lot!
I mean that in the nicest way!
I brought some of those 'smells' home with me.
Three Slimbridge soaps for my bathroom.
Three pieces of vintage cottons, again from Donna...to add to what I call my
own pile of favourites...the ones with which I am very reluctant to part ....
Finally, a handmade card from Viv and a small, vintage, framed picture from Lucy.
No more blogging this week as I've a pretty hectic schedule
and then on Saturday, I'm off to one of my favourite places to
have a good scream and shout...cos I'm allowed!
Go Gulls...you can do it!! Just believe!
Have a great week all !
