I have had a lovely day....so far.
I made my way to Magpies and I vintage and craft fair this morning. I got there at 11 so as not to miss any bobby dazzlers. I immediately stumbled upon a dreamy bit of retro pottery....unfortunately it was just being snapped up, dang!
I soon picked my bottom lip up from the cold market floor and carried on pottling.
I met up with my friend Sarah (there was some kitty dealings to be done) and we happily pottled together, it is nice to chat and shop.
As per usual 90% of my purchases were fabric related.
I bought Kitty fabrics.
And a new cushion for my kitchen chair.
I am spending a lot more time in my kitchen since the refit so a cushion for my back was a must.
I treated myself to yet more tea towels for my new kitchen
I love tea towels and they were only £1 each :)
They are all vintage ST Michael or as littlest calls it 'marks expensive'.
And here I am embarking on yet another insane collection.
I can't even use these little gadgets as yet but it is a buddy for knitting Nancy. I think I may name him knitting Nigel. I like the name Nigel but I am not sure why?
Sarah and I took a short break to partake in coffee and cake and were swiftly (not that swiftly) joined by Mrs Teawagon .
After a lovely chitter chatter and a bit of putting the world to rights we went for our second look around the market
I had a little possible purchase to consider whilst I drank my coffee and I was now at the decision stage.
Why did I have to think about this little fella??
Isn't he adorable.
I will be ordering a jumper from the sweat shop that runs alongside my home, ie, my mums annexe. He needs a bit of knitwear don't you agree?
This boy doll is Italian and I am guessing from the 70s. I paid £3 for him.
On a different note I have been making a few kitty's this weekend trying to keep up with the jumper production going on in mothers sweat shop. She has branched put to jumper dresses and hats of late.
Dottie is modelling the new hat/sweater dress combo.
I have not yet listed them in my folksy shop but there are still a few available and I am planning a shop update on return from my holibobs.
As I mentioned earlier on in this rather long and drawn out blog post, I was delivering a couple of kitties to my friend Sarah today. Sarah buys them for her daughter Eve and she has rather a collection developing. She is actually one of my best customers (along with Heather).
I came home with a lovely little gift from Sarah and Eve.
How cute is my new little owl. I have displayed him beneath my bibbly bobbly lamp.
So, to wrap this post up, before you all drop off your little sofas, I have had a most wonderful day today.
Tonight I will mostly be ironing :(
