We did get a bit carried away with the camera on the weekend, but there was just sooooo much to see! The old fashioned fun fair was so very colourful, and brought back so many memories of all the excitement when I was a little girl, going to the fair with my brothers.
I didn't have much time to take photos, which is probably just as well, lol, you'd get sick of wading through hundreds of them.
Just a few then of the Red Indian Village -
Thats enough for today I reckon, tomorrow, if you are very very good girls, I might show you a couple of the most beautiful, most romantic, gorgeous 19th Century plates (from an old book), which I bought from my sort of next door neighbours at the fair ( it wasn't quite next door, lol, more like next door round the corner at the back, sort of ). I really adore them, and I think I will frame the whole lot ( 11) and hang them in one of the bedrooms in the cottage in France. That was on the Saturday.
Now I really do love ephemera and I couldn't help myself, I had to nip next door a couple of times on Sunday as well. They had tons of lovely old newspapers, magazines, letters, legal documents, tickets, you name it, they had it. And of course there were some really gorgeous flower plates from the 1930s, which cried out " buy me, buy me " all the time I was looking at them. Sigh. They might just be destined for the cottage, too. Just as well I can't stand blank walls, lol.
On the second day of the fair, on my mad dash through the charity tent, I got just a couple of really nice things as well. I'll photograph them today and post pics of those tomorrow as well.
Right, thats definitely it now, toodlepip xx
