Last week we had visitors in our cosy cottage. My Mum and Dad had made their way down from the Highlands of Scotland to come and stay for a few days with us and experience the sights and sounds of London. The second bedroom looked quite different with the little daybed transformed to a comfortable double (there's a truckle bed and mattress hiding behind the valance). It was a lovely couple of days filled with tasty food, good company and lots of lovely things to do. Mum and I made a bee-line for the Country Living Fair, armed with a list of Christmas presents. We arrived early on the Wednesday morning, keen to avoid the crowds and managed to get quite a few presents ticked off the list. Of course, we couldn't very well go to the Country Living fair and not get a few goodies for ourselves!
I picked up a lovely white and light blue vintage french match box holder, I'd been looking for one for a while and couldn't believe my luck when I spotted this pretty little box on the Rosie's Armoire stall.
A couple of baubles for the Christmas tree...
A charming miniature stocking with vintage embroidery from Chloe Antiques and a delicate glass with gilt decoration from Caroline Zoob.
The next day we managed to fit in a visit to the Tower of London and a trip to St Martins Theatre to watch the Mouse Trap by Agatha Christie which was excellent. St Martins Theatre is very Victorian and quite small compared to other London theatres, but it added to our enjoyment!
It was a truly delightful couple of days which went by much too quickly (as delightful days always do!)
