Keeping it short today, because I am trying to clear up at least enough for me to be able to get onto my sewing machine.
After the outdoor bootfair yesterday morning, we went to an indoor one. Boy was I glad it was indoors, because, as we were driving along, huge black clouds were rushing towards us and within a couple of minutes it grew dark and the heavens opened. It was like Niagara Falls rushing down over the windscreen, the wipers could hardly cope.
Anyway, the indoor bootfair was quite busy, and I did find a couple of things. I was really chuffed to bits with these trios, anything with roses makes me smile and get my purse out -
This is yet another rosy treasure, a gorgeous Royal Albert Moss Rose tray, perfect for my dressing table in France -
I might have shown you a few bits of carnival glass before. I love that stuff, the way the colours shimmer and change, like oil slicks on water. Can you imagine how excited I was when I found this stunning vase? The beautifully flowing, sensuous Art Nouveau style shape, the incredible shimmering colours, I was smitten as soon as I saw it. Snapped it up, didn't haggle, just put it in my bag with a huge grin on my face. Darned thing is very difficult to photograph though, especially as the light is so very bad during this horrible weather
Thats all for today, I am going to be a good girl and clear another square metre or two of mess.
