It's that time again where I'm in anticipation of my next Vintage fair and only a week to go. This is the first market I will be doing and the first time outside! The weather at mo is appalling! rain, wind, gloomy basically BUT have to keep positive and just go for it:)  I've borrowed a gazebo and managed to dodge the rain to put it up by myself, which was quite quick really, thank goodness it's a popup one. I have tonnes of space too so more tables are needed.  I also have my terrific friend Jo to help me on the day, she's such a star! will take photo's and put on here when Iv'e recovered! xx
Some of my gorgeous Vintage brooches waiting to be bought and loved!

Am loving these rustic vintage tea cups and saucer set of a robin and holly, just ideal for Christmas and there are 11 of them. Will be taking them to Ruby Country Market next Saturday :)

Was so chuffed I came across these Vintage Christmas wrapping paper! Only have 4 sheets though :(

Vintage handmade ladies nightie bag and a tissue holder purse of a hand painted oriental lady with tiny beads which have been sewn on. Somebody must of spent hours making it. Beautiful!

This is a gorgeous Vintage bed chamber pot cupboard that I picked up from Yelverton at the weekend. It has the pot rim marks inside so it's had good use! yes it is clean and no it doesn't smell! Not quite sure what to do with it but I love it. A handy piece of furniture to have for any room :)
I think this is going to be a cracker of an event! The biggest one I'm doing and I'm braving it outside with my stall!! I can't wait, am borrowing a table and gazebo and will be wrapped in thermals, nice. So if you want a great day out with lots to do and see, then visit us here at Ruby Country Market in Hatherleigh on Saturday 1st December.

What I've done with old vintage buttons, beads and bits of jewellery.
This is a typical serene country scene of a vintage Birthday greetings postcard. I adore it. On the bottom it says "It is your Birthday, so I'm sending, Wishes of the very best, That to you there may be wending, All that makes life glad and best". 'wending'?
I don't know what it is about old vintage postcards of ladies, they just look so....innocent? clean? but definitely beautiful.
It's that time of the year & we're all talking about Christmas (unless your a Johova) I picked up these delightful vintage postcards dated from 20s/40s which have sweet messages on the backs. Love the old English way they wrote, so polite and proper.

I never thought I would go for toys but couldn't resist this vintage toy bus and tram.
Going back to my Niece's wedding, I only took a couple of photos which I wish I took more as every table looked different. I made the confetti too out of pages from a Jane Austin book, a heart hole punch & some food colouring, oh & a nice sunny day to dry out the pages. Loved all the different lace vintage table cloths and the guests got a vintage tea-cup as their wedding favour filled with sugared almonds. 

Have just finished this Decoupage Vintage sewing box, only took a few hours and I enjoy ripping up paper, very therapeutic!
