Oooh, look!

Time to share some of the goodies I got at THAT fair. (If you couldn't get to the Vintage & Handmade Fair, sorry we all keep going on about it, but it IS brilliant. Congratulations and thanks to Jayne and Michele for all their organising.) I mean, just look at all that!
And that..

And there were other things that I can't show you (Xmas secrets!). But this next one was a present to myself.
And thinking about present-giving on special days, my next blog post will be number 100!! So to commemorate this notable landmark, I'll be doing a giveaway. Woo hoo! So keep watching, and I hope you won't have to wait too long.

Lovely finds, looks like it was a great fair. I like collecting little bits & bobs like the first picture (I assume they're cracker jack or bubble gum charms?).

Hello Elaine..
This is one of my favourite times...visiting the 'ladies' blogs' who attended the fair to see what they bought and how they faired!
I am so so pleased it went well for you and I must confess.. I would have bought exactly the same plastic kitsch.. though I had to wear blinkers this time!
Very much looking forward to the next fair.. already, and seeing you and your other half again.. and I will recognise you next time..sorry!! My head was in such a whirl.. must be my age!

What is it about buttons on a card that makes them irresistible?

Country Cottage Chic said...
