A magical day, of old values, warmth, and hands of friendship.....




























Nicky makes the most gorgeous soft toys, they are very polite, but they really like cake!!!






Carol had the most beautifully made hearts, and such pretty Gingham Heart cards, lots of lovely hand made pretties




Frances had the most wonderful vintage look, with such pretty vintage Dolly's......
What a wonderful day, (please click on the link 'Vintage Fair' to see all the amazing bloggers that were selling at the fayre). I have just shown a tiny peek of my neighbours beautiful tables, not really doing them justice!! There were so many more stunning tables!!
I must thank Frances for her large (so very useful, saved the day) brown bags...and the fact that she has as many crazy ideas as me!!! and a lovely daughter in law......
and also Carol for being one of the nicest stylish friendliest ladies I could ever wish to meet, plus her lovely family.
In all honesty every person there had a table full of the most wonderful finds, exciting new ideas, different gorgeous items...... you could never, never reproduce the atmosphere, friendship and excitement in the photographs that existed in the hall yesterday.
I want to say a thankyou a BIG thankyou to the wonderful people I met, the customers who said such nice things it made me teary, and so yet so happy. It was a day full of real values, real talent, and real friendship. A day that would never of happened for me without the support of my whole family, and my beloved daughter and wonderful husband.
May we all be blessed with a peaceful and restful week.
Love Lynn xxxxx

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 go...so 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

I want to start getting ready for Yule..........






Yes, I am still sewing.........our lovely house is a terrible mess; I know I have a husband and daughter but I have lost them under piles of fabric, along with half of the house. I am so glad to go to work even and leave all the mess behind, and I have never said that before (big smile). I want to thank everyone for their 'can't resists' they were fabulous and got me through a difficult week, thankyou. After the Fayre I want to do a 'Give Away' to say thankyou, to everyone, but I don't know what to make!!!
So if you have time, tell me what you might like and then I will look at all the answers and put a few of them in my give away. I can't think of any better way of starting my count down to Yule than making a few nice things for some lovely friends.
Buy a friend a cake and a cup of tea.... give her a hug make her happy!!!!
Lots of hugs

I just could not resist........

I could not resist sitting on top of these crispy autumn leaves.......

I could not resist making these vintage encrusted lovelies.......


I cannot resist making anything with birds on.......

I cannot resist the making of Advent decorations........



I cannot resist being in the park at any time


As you can see, all my inspirations come from all of you, my blog friends, and the gorgeous and beautiful things that you make. You are my encouragement.....and I thank you all from my heart for your inspiration.
If you have time I would love to know what you cannot resist doing!! Dare you divulge your secrets............
Have a fun and lovely week, dance in the leaves, collect jewelled cobwebs on forked branches, but don't listen to the squirrels, they tell terrible tales.............
Love and hugs Lynn xx
