And so it was...the cacophony continued throughout the day!

The street cries of Chipping Sodbury could be heard far and wide!

And they all followed the cries to the town hall.

And there they did gather.




For a feast of fabulous fabric, fashion and fun!

Thanks to...



Michele and Jayne!

for another wonderful...

' Original Vintage and Handmade Textile and Fashion Fair'





(And a little bit of thanks to Lionel Bart for the inspiration)

;-)

Do listen...to the real thing!!




There'll never be a day so sunny...that could not happen twice!

Wanna bet?!

Midweek Snippets!




I'm loving this article :



Here's the book from which the extract comes:





Has anyone bought or received flowers from Asda, lately?

Well, I have and I've been delighted!

£2 a bunch for a mixture of roses and carnations!



The selection in the Newton Abbot Asda has been

excellent compared to what's been on offer in

M&S , nearby.

Not only that, they have lasted!




Meanwhile, I'm all packed and ready for...




Hope to see some of you, on Saturday, at:

The Vintage and Handmade Textile and Fashion Fair

Chipping Sodbury Town Hall



I'll be there with my vintage fabrics.



And a selection of handmade goodies


Finally, if you're into scrapbooking etc...

I recently purchased a few liquid pearls from, The Craftz Boutique.

The service was first class!

When I was ONE, I had just begun!!! ;-)


Well...here I am and I have something exciting to tell you!

On Wednesday, it was my birthday and I am now ONE year old!!!

That's very old, I've been told!




Yesterday, I had visitors for a birthday lunch.

The visitors came with presents...all for me!




I'm trying to learn to say, 'Quack , quack'!





Hmm...now then what's this..ah Duplo!

Mummy said that she played with Duplo when she was very young.




Now I can make a noise!!




And being a girl, I do need plenty of clothes!





I love books! Mummy reads to me, a lot.




I had a lovely day...

and also a lovely day on Wednesday ,when Mummy and Daddy

took me to the zoo to see the Giraffes.

Mummy made me a Giraffe cake.

We ate the neck first...



And then...Oh my!!



Love,

Meggy
