I love the blue colours in these vintage pictures, so Iv'e added 'the lady with birds' one to my new cards!

Hello peeps! have found this delightful, good quality brown faux leather bag with an easy brass clasp, I love the different compartments too. The label inside says' REIS' Denmark. I've tried to research this make but haven't got very much info, the design though might be around 30s-50s. If any one out there knows, please drop me a line as its a super bag!

These were picked up from a car boot in North Petherton, Somerset, on Sunday. Armed with my sister Ira, my sister-in-law, niece and my Mom, we spent a good couple of hours there and felt like I'd just had therapy, It was great! We were so lucky that it was indoors as the rain was relentless.

I'm delighted to show you my first Vintage hat I bought in a charity shop yesterday. It's navy blue and fits like a dream. The label is C&A and I think it must date to around the 80s. Ooh Iv'e got the vintage navy lace gloves too, will have to find somewhere to wear them!
Thanks go to my other lovely sister Ira who bought me this pearl brooch from a car boot sale on Sunday. Ira  has been living in America for almost 30ish years now. She is visiting us here and her last visit was about 3 years ago! It's been fab and all us girls in the family love the same things..of course!
I have more tea cups and saucers kindly donated by my Mom's "Knit & Natter" ladies group.Thank You!

My lovely sister Tina gave these wonderful items. Love the genuine vintage Alligator skin handbag, possibly dated 1950s and It's in great condition. I adore the tiny Edwardian child's booties, they are so cute and I thank her for giving me the soft velvet necklace bust too, which will be used well for my next Vintage fair on 14th July at Taunton Trull Village Hall. I'm gonna re-do the whole look of my stall, so keep your eyes peeled for more info.

Isn't this a beautiful vintage dressing set of mirror, brush and comb? It's in excellent condition, the comb and brush looks like it hasn't been used! It took us an hour to drive there but was well worth it! Thank you Wadebridge! :)
This was a group of finds that I bought from the same two ladies who had a stall at Wadebridge car boot sale on Monday. I love the delicate vintage navy blue lace gloves and the pearl choker, gorgeous gorgeous!!

Hello Peeps and what a lovely time we had at the Exeter vintage fair! There was a fun, exciting atmosphere and a buzz in the air. These were a couple of the stalls which were displayed beautifully, I found myself just gazing in admiration for absolutely ages! I bumped into Lynne from and Delia from deedee' who had wonderful stalls there. They have been organising  a "Summer Days Handmade and Vintage Inspired Craft Fair" on Saturday 14th July at Trull Village Hall in my home town of Taunton. Can't wait!
