I thought you might like to see what we did this weekend...
Saturday saw us heading to Chipping Sodbury for the Vintage and Handmade Textile Fair. Here's my stall, complete with lots of new things for sale and a new layout.
It was a great day and, as always, it was lovely to see so many people.Thank you if you were one of those who came to say "hello"!
I had my eye on this dress all day at the fair and rather fell in love with it. Such pretty colours and great potential for skirt twirling and swishing when worn I imagine! I resisted temptation this time...if only I could have thought of an event to justify its purchase!
Yesterday (as loyal National Trust members!) we met some friends at Coughton Court (near Alcester) for a Sunday trip out.
Coughton Court is the home of the Throckmortons and has seen its fair share of history. It's fascinating to look around and I loved the family sitting room, complete with roaring log fire and someone playing the piano. It had a wonderfully cosy and lived-in feel to it.
The highlight for Little Treasure was the ducks. As soon as they got wind that our friends had brought some bread with them, the ducks flocked out of the water to greet us with great enthusiasm!
Just by the orchard we spotted these sunflowers poking their heads above a hedge. I love sunflowers, they're such cheerful flowers.
No trip to a National Trust property would be complete without tea and cake. I had a very yummy slice of treacle tart...just the thing for an autumnal afternoon!
As if all this this wasn't enough, we were also able to curl up in front of the fabulous new series of Downton Abbey last night...oh, I do love Sundays!
