Last week I went with a friend to the Spring Country Living fair, money was spent and much hilarity was had. We had a lovely time wandering around and so many of the stalls were set up beautifully, the Sea Garden looked superb again this year and Caroline Zoob's stall always sets my heart racing. But the "smash and grab" atmosphere really gets a bit much and at times can only be described as a frenzy! I came home with quite a few treasures for the cottage; a lovely white Sadler jug for flowers or lemonade;
a pretty little teacup to hang from a hook - just now it's on the dresser, but it may do a bit of travelling later;
some little milk bottles to hold sprigs of flora from the garden;
a lovely large French wicker laundry basket - which I will be using to hold my ironing but when it is not in use it will live on top of our wardrobe perhaps with a quilt inside it!
I also got the very last egg candle from Caroline Zoob, I was a bit disappointed that I had missed out on the pretty speckled eggs that they had earlier, more evidence of the crazy atmosphere at the fair!
Hopefully, I might be able to hunt down a few more so that I can put together a lovely display for Easter.
