Packing for the Fayre..........

Oh! Fullers angel-cake, Robertson's marmalade,
Liberty lampshade, come shine on us all,
My! what a spread for the friends of Myfanwy,
Some in the alcove and some in the hall...........................
One of my favorite poems by Sir John Betjeman, sums up just how I feel about the Vintage Fayre. Well my lovely friends I am packing up ready to I just thought to show you a peep at some more items I have made.........
Have a wonderful week, and my next post will be full of photos of our special day, so even if you cannot make it, you will not miss seeing it.
Love and big hugs
Lynn xxx

Lynn I am itching to get inside that suitcase and have a good rummage (without spoiling all your beautiful packing as well!!!). I wish I was able to come and have a close up look at all your beautiful work that I have been admiring from afar. Have a wonderful time at the Fair
I was thinking of you when I took the photos of the pier that you saw on my blog, I wondered if you use to enjoy the beach in winter too, i suspect you did

Oh Lynn.... where to start? You make such ethereal beauty; you capture the untouchable and translate it into form for us all to see! What a gift... what a talent! I hope you have a fabulous time with friends at your "fayre" and bask in the compliments you are due to receive on your work.... I wish I could see you and your lovely things in person!

Sussi's värld said...

I'm smiling for myself here.
I've been wearing patchouli for the last 10 years, then in Spain I found Sephoras Vanilla/Patchouli perfume....Loved it.
So you should really try to find this Voluspa, think it's made for you!!
"Adventskrans" is something they always make in Denmark with four candles, one for every sunday in advent. "Krans" is wreath.
Love Sussi

Such delights to entice the spirit of giving and fulfill the need for a small trifle for oneself.
Though we are not there in person we certainly are in spirit.
