Nostalgic Mix!

There are some things in life that one cannot give up!


And 'More Tea Vicar' always provides the best!

And so it was that the plates were oozing with tempting, tasty treats;

cupcakes were crying out 'Come, pick me...' and the Simnel simply sat there,

patiently waiting to be cut..again and again.

And all because of the now 'very famous' Nostalgic Mix Fair!

People come from far and wide...don'tcha know?!!!

We love this fair, partly because we don't have to get up

quite as's just a toddle down the road for us!

Not forgetting all my goodies...

This time, I was in a small room off the main hall.

No, I hadn't been segregated for any reason other than

a kind of experiment to see whether it was worth using the room.

But I wasn't alone!

My partner in crime was my mate, Amanda!

And what a fine time we had...with of course the added

attraction of Mr Snippets and Amanda's lovely mum, Barbara.

Enid Blyton might well have written The Famous Five...and The Secret Seven

but did she think of ' The Famous, Fab, Feisty Fair- loving Four ?'

I bet not!

Well...we sure made the little room work for us whatever our name !

It didn't dare not!

It was all sooooo good but one of my favourite displays was this:

The fabulously talented Sarah Strachan and her delightful


And next to her was the cutest display ...

I managed to whizz around and snap a few pics in order to present

a 'flavour of the day' to all of you blog readers.

'Elegantly Wasted' really was elegantly displayed.

I think that the addition

of the ballet dancers somehow created a calm and grace to their area.

And Tracey's (The Vintage Bothy) displays were beautiful too...

she has a knack for display and I reckon she must have been a top

window dresser in a past life; she is so very good at it, showing

her offerings at their very best.

As usual, there were...

...a few bits for the men...just to add contrast and interest

and make the blokes feel...well... involved !

Lesley's display had a definite spring feel to it...

the yellows and greens immediately caught my eye...

and of course daffodils were scattered around the hall

giving an added, fresh look to the whole proceedings.

A very good fair?

You bet.

Marks out of ten?

Twenty!! ;-)

Nice one Lesley...superb organisation as always

and a fine old time was had by all.

And if you missed it...then never get a chance in
