Yesterday's Vintage Fair in Market Harborough was great, it was even busier than the last one in Market Harborough even though we had sub zero temperatures. On our drive over in the morning the temperature dropped to -15 degrees but the countryside looked stunning with the trees covered in thick frost.
Of course I had to treat myself to a couple of things including this lovely jar with it's bright red lid from Helen Storey. I am not sure what I am going to use it for yet but it will definitely live in the kitchen with my other red bits of kitchenalia.
I found the lovely roses tin on Wend's stall. The daffodils are the ones we had on the tea tables in the tea room, they were displayed in vintage coronation mugs. I love using this vintage Kilner jar as a vase for spring flowers.I bought it from Acorn and Will at lat year's Country Living Fair.
I found this little wooden doll with a pink dress on Adrian's stall. She has found a home with my other two with their yellow and blue dresses.
This wonderful assortment of 1930s reading comprehension cards were from Vicky Loves Vintage.
I found this gorgeous piece of fabric on Wend's stall and will definitely turn it in to some pretty cushion covers.
This lovely barbola plaque was another purchase from Vicky loves Vintage.
It has survived in wonderful condition and is beautifully hand painted.
I have been avoiding helping Mr C with the unpacking of bags and boxes today and instead have been faffing with pictures. I have finally replaced my christmas classroom print in the hall with this one of ducks which is one of my favourites.
The chickens have cheered up today as the snow has started to melt. The poor things were totally bamboozled by their first experience of snow, they refused to budge from these plant pots until Mr C had cleared them a path.
Thanks to everyone who came along yesterday and supported the fair, I had a really enjoyable day talking to lots of lovely people. There are photos of the day over on the fair blog.
