Better late than never ...

... some pics of the lovely 'Vintage at the Village Hall' fair
at the Blandford Corn Exchange.

OK, it was a few weeks ago now but life has been getting on top of VJ
 and there has been no time to blog!

As usual Elaine organised a fab fair,
and when the doors opened the buyers flocked in.
The Cat in the Shoe was opposite Vintage Jane,
with the most amazing creations.
VJ lusted after every one of them.
Each one so beautifully made with superb attention to detail.
Just look at those little handmade socks and shoes ... !
Fur coat, stripy trews and red shoes ... Love it!
There were of course lots more stalls laden with all sorts of goodies ...
Sartorial, practical, impractical, beautiful ... it was all there.
Three little princesses in their bed ...
VJ came home with purple shoes, buttons and a little pressie for sister-in-law.

Looking forward to the next one ...

I love all of these Jane. It's brilliant to see that you've still been doing what you love and also continuing your magic on this wonderful and special blog that you have.

I hope all has been good with you and your family and that you had a great Summer, you're an amazing human being and I just thought I'd drop by to make sure you're aware that I think that, keep up the good work! :)
