Village Fairs..

I love Agriculture Fairs, and I went to a lovely one a few weeks ago, my friend Vicky kindly gave us some tickets and we had a lovely time the stalls inspired me to paint and capture some of the lovely things I saw there, I love the whole concept of Fifty's Britain, jams and bunting summer picnics days in summer meadows..

I used my French paper on canvas boards for the backgrounds



                                                           New paintings waiting to go in  my Etsy Shop





I loved all the haberdashery stalls Sorry SOLD


everywhere was pretty and dressed in a vintage way it was lovely


The cakes stall was amazing...we ate too much

My back is improving thank you so much for all of my get well cards and kind wishes xx
Hugs Lynn xxxxx

Judging by the fact that you made the rounds at the village fair leads me to conclude you are feeling better. Wonderful.
And how beautifully you have captured the outing, sharing the memories for those so far away.
Take care.

Hello lovely Lynn, I am so sorry you have been in such pain and in hospital. Please look after yourself.The show looks wonderful and I can plainly see why you ate so much! Your paintings are just gorgeous. If you still have the one with the scissors I would love to have it. Can I send you a cheque?

Thank you for your lovely comments. I just know you would adore the setting for this wedding. The bride has chosen a lovely simple country style, and I cannot wait to get my teeth into it. The wedding is on Thursday. I will keep you posted.
All my love to you, Linda xx
