Something else I enjoy doing is making posters for family parties. These are for my brothers 40th fancy dress "hero and villain's" do. yes I know he's gonna be 40 but as kids we grew up watching sci-fi and the old Batman series which were addictive and fun. There are about 86ish action words used in the series and I picked a handful to draw and paint.
Can't wait to be at the "Vintage at the Village" - A Nostalgic Vintage Fair, Sunday 2nd September, Puriton Village Hall, starts 10am - 4pm. cool!!

More displays of my stall at Topsham Vintage Fair. I'm determined someone will buy the gorgeous immaculate vintage crocodile skin handbag!!
Part of my stool at the Topsham Vintage Fair, Exeter on Bank holiday Monday 27th August. It went well and met some great characters. Jo Bliss made us laugh all through the day with her witty banter and honest approach to life experiences, I loved her stock of old advertised pictures printed onto cards and T-shirts, I'm sure she will do well in the Isle of Man Vintage Fair coming up soon, you go girl!!

I was so lucky to find this 60s/70s long beaded necklace in Plymouth yesterday. The Orange colour is very striking!

After doing what I like best.. rummaging in boxes at car boot sales, I came across this vintage handmade Ballerina brooch, as always I'm astounded by the workmanship that has gone into making such a delicate piece.

Ain't these cute? adorable vintage children's playing cards. There are 39 all together, 4 of each apart from 3 of the "The gentle Art" ones, which are probably rare! Thank you to my mate Jo for these as they belonged to her grandmother and she had fond memories of playing with them as a child.
I'm a big fan of tins and couldn't resist this Marie Antoinette and King Louis XVI biscuit tin, bought in Cornwall last week.

Antique Majolica Green dolphin Tazza compote dish. Thank you to my brother Dan and his partner Ali for buying this for me. Cheers my dears! :)
