Vintage Fair Saturday

Good evening

Bit quiet everywhere tonight - guess lots are watching ITV for some reason ;)

Not here - no-one is interested. We've watched Doctor Who & the boys have watched the Confidential programme too.  I was going to sew this evening - have another dress ready for the machine but instead I've been taking pictures of some of the items I got in Woodbridge today.

Country Girl & I headed there this afternoon - for the Vintage Fair but also to have a good look in all the wonderful shops that Woodbridge has.  It didn't disappoint - one or several items came home with us;

Four reels of vintage cotton on gorgeous wooden reels - one of the many CS's - just £1 :)

Another ladybird book - again the CS's - just 50p

Totally gorgeous oversized rose ring from one of the little boutiquey shops in Woodbridge.

UJ wrapping paper - far too posh for pressie wrapping - fits the frame in the summerhouse perfectly.

We did have a good look around the vintage fair - saw lots of lovely items but I didn't buy anything - mainly coz the things I coveted most were beyond my budget :(

We did have a good afternoon - weather was kind to us and its nice to have a good natter without children/husbands/dogs etc getting in the way!!

Got home late afternoon - just in time to catch MrVV cutting the grass - Dawn he says he won't forget you making him jump out of his skin when you beeped at him - apparently 'heffalumps don't forget' whatever that means!!

Tomorrow we're off to a belated 60th birthday party for my Mum - a big family gathering - I think almost 30 of us! My littlest sister has offered to host it in her garden - between us sisters (all 6 of us) we're doing the cooking, so I shall be up earlyish in the morning.

See you soon

I am a football free zone too. Nice and peaceful. I heartily support our country but football is a step too far. Lovely finds and that ring wow! Glad you had a good day and hope everything goes with a swing tomorrow.

We luckily had a wedding today so had to miss the footy :-) have a fab day tomorrow, sounds like a lovely family event.

lovely cotton reals, I can't remember the last time I saw a wooden one, shame everything ends up plastic isn't it.

Annie said...

I half heartedly watched the football last night, and I can assure you you didn't miss much. Love your pink ring, very pretty. Enjoy your mum's party today, hope it stays fine for you.

Just caught up with all your posts, you have been busy! The bunting in the summer house is fab. And I really LOVE your new dresses.
Hope the party for your mum is lots of fun today.

I'm glad that you had a nice time. I haven't been able to get to Woodbridge this week-end but would love to have gone.xx

We also are a football free household but unfortunately school isn't football free so will have to suffer all the talk next week.
Harry and I had a wander around the Vintage market and also didn't buy anything - great for getting ideas though!

Sarah said...

Wow you've got five sisters?!! That sure beats my four girls. Did your parents survive the teenage years OK? I hope the party goes well and a great time is had by all. Lucky your sister gets so much help.

Lovely post. I inherited all my Gran's wooden Sylko threads but have mostly only got the weird colours left now! Couldn't bring myself to throw away the reels though! Hope you had a lovely party and that the weather was kind to you.

Claire said...

ooo i would have gone to the fair but we went to Bentwaters air show sat night, so sat we were packing up the lorry. I'm well over due a look around Woodbridge charity shops :)

There will be nothing left for the rest of us in the Woodbridge Charity shops - Vicki and Dawn get all the best bits!
