This little lady arrived in the post this week. She was very grubby but after a gentle clean came up looking fine. She has now joined the rest of my little bisque dolls.
We have had a lovely extended weekend which included a trip to Oxford.
This time the sun was shining and we had a tour of the city on an open topped bus followed by a relaxing lunch in Jamie's Italian.
We always love wandering around Oxford, peeping in to the colleges and exploring the narrow little streets.
The mellow stone looked lovely in the sunshine although the sun seems to have disappeared behind a cloud in this picture.
Yesterday I somehow managed to squeeze in a small boot sale and two vintage fairs in to the space of a couple of hours !
The first fair was a lovely little vintage fair in the church hall at Earls Barton. The tea and home made cake was delicious and there was a lovely atmosphere. Sharon from Clover Cottage had a stall and it was great to catch up with her.
The gorgeous pink eiderdown was a purchase from the second fair we visited and I couldn't resist it although I know I don't need another one ! As soon a I got it home I gave it a gentle wash in the machine and got it out on the line in the sunshine to dry. The two little hand painted glasses were found at the same fair.
The lovely yellow Jasmine Ware jug was found at the Earls Barton fair and the Tala cake tin and rolling pin at the second fair in Northampton.
The rolling pin is really pretty, I think it dates to around the 1930s and is hand painted with flowers and butterflies.
