Country Living Fair and getting ready for Yule......................

                                                  Fantastic Soap ' Caurnie Soaperie' at the Fair

   Christmas Trees and a sprout tree at the Farmers Market ha ha !!

                                         Waiting patiently at the Country Living Fair to go in......

The journey up on the train was fabulous, passing through the snow topped hills..we sped along to the fair..what a super day.................. all the stands are beautiful at this gorgeous place but I must just tell you about this fabulous soap maker at the Country Living Fair 'Caurnie Soaperie' was not only the most beautifully decorated Stand by far (for me) but the products clear honey coloured soaps are drop dead fabulous, all natural oils are used to fragrance them, like lavender or Geranium, or Nettle  and they are so gorgeous and gentle I can wash my face with them...and I have sensitive skin, I shall be putting some in my give away next week for the lucky winner to sample.

I had to pose in my new Top Shop .... cover every lump and bump jumper ha ha!! and just to remind you all that Christmas is on its way...  a picture of two little pot grow trees that found their way  into our shopping at the Farmers market today together with lots of lovely veggies.. 
I have made the Christmas cakes and I am now feeding them with lots of brandy to keep them nice and moist and just before I pop off I  must remember to tell you that I am having a Christmas give away next week so be SURE to look in........
Happy days xxxxx

Dear Lynn
Oh it all sounds so very festive! Which of the fairs did you go to? Was that in Scotland? The soap stand does look beautiful and the products sound perfect - how lovely to find a soap which is really gentle.
Your outfit is gorgeous and makes you look most festive indeed!
Have a good week,

Oooooh I love it when you put the floaty snowflakes on your blog Lynn - now I can't wait for Christmas! And how lovely to see snow on your way up to the CL Fair; must have got you in the right mood for all that Christmas shopping. I love to see all the displays at the Fair too, selling is all about presentation. Glad you had a fab time,

Oh Lynn - I adore handmade fresh soaps - it is one of my most favorite spluges! Nothing makes me feel beter that a wonderfully scented soap that lathers and makes me feel so ~~

Beautiful photos of the soap stand - ohmy - I would have spent ALL of my money there for sure.

Madelief said...

Hi Lynn,

You look great in that outfit! Very hip with the short pants, jumper and hiking boots! Must have been very comfortable with the cold. I wish I could have joined you at the fair. It sounds very attractive and just the thing I like!

Enjoy your evening!

Lieve groet, Madelief

I can't usually use soap but that stand would have had me buying gifts for all my special friends. Lovely pics and what a super knitted jacket you are wearing.

You look cute in your new jumper.
