Church as her backdrop was stunning it really had a wow factor. It was an eclectic mixture of vintage goodies and she had made a wood hanging display with little vintage glass pots with tiny violas planted in them. There were old clock faces, plants, bottles, empherma and so much more it looked so inviting and no wonder there were so many people buzzing around .... It was lovely to say hello and I snapped away taking some lovely shots ....
displayed and my heart went out to several things one being the blue painted side board but I just did not buy more furniture for a house we do not have yet ... it was hard to do but I managed it. Also the wooden rabbit caught my eye but again I was really on a fabric mission and I only deviated slightly and of cause later in the week you will see why, plus they were small things ...
Just look at those greyhounds too!......
Next was Rosemary and Fern and I had never seen this lady before such beautiful vintage things on offer . There were some dear little rabbits that you could hang over pots in the garden, ballet shoes ( which I would love some of but would like red!) glass objects and such a gorgeous and different array of goodies .... I introduced myself and asked if I might take photos for here and happily she agreed. If people do not know you they really do not like photos just being taken, especially if they are makers, which is understandable.
Rosebud and Violet were my next port of call and as always when I have seen this stall it is filled with such wonderful treasure it makes your heart skip a beat! Saturday was no exception to the rule with gorgeous vintage goodies everywhere.
As you can see there were gorgeous cushions and home wares along with garden bits too. Old linens and china ... such a delight.
I then moved on and found Suzy of Hearts 'n' Kisses and her stall with all her hand stitched and designs that she produces. There were hanging hearts, pictures, wall hangings, vintage stepping stools,
Suzy designs and hand embroiders all her own work and she is very popular at all the shows that she attends. It was so lovely to be able to catch up with her as we have not seen each other since before Christmas ... She had lots of people there buying and her stall looked gorgeous.
Happy Days I found Simone of Aryes and Graces now this lady has talent like you would
not believe, I bought a sleeping hare from her last year that graces my bed always. She makes animals and one of her latest is a Hedgehog ... she has and eye for detail and the whimsical... I had to pick up another little something to take home with me but I do have my eye on a hedgehog. We love these animals in our house plus my Mums knick name has always been Mrs Tiggywinkle from Beatrix Potter. My mum loved ironing and cake and she so reminded us of
this character, in fact she has her own mug at our house with Mrs Tiggy on it. Have a good look at this ladies talent ... Can you see the hedgehog? so adorable knitting away. I need to talk to Simone about an ironing one for my Mum.
.We caught up and had a lovely chat, I chatted my away around this fair as I have been so absent of late so it was great to catch up with friends ..
Next to Simone was Hellish Designs with all her lovely lampshades plus other household
vintage items... The corner that is was in was so cosy as her lights were all lit up too.
With all the walking about I would have been tempted to sit and people watch there if there had been a chair. The fair was so busy and lots of laughter and chatter. I have some of this ladies lampshades that I bought a few years ago but I want to get two more for our bedside lights in red for the winter months to change them over ... pure decadence but hey I love to change the rooms about with different quilts, eiderdowns and lights to make a different and interesting change to the home.
Suitably Vintage were there with there gorgeous fabrics, buttons, ribbons and haberdashery along with a beautiful bird cage but that had been sold by the time I got there... there were mill spools and all sorts of gorgeous things on offer... yes I bought a few bits! who wouldn't it was gorgeous and so tempting.
The Little Green Door were there and I had not seen them before not only was there some absolutely gorgeous vintage pieces but this lady does hand embroidery too. There were handmade soaps, vintage books, glass bottles and china to name but a few bits ... It was a feast for the eyes a wonderfully talented lady with her embroidery . It was a pleasure to look and take it all in and a pleasure too to photograph as well.
Rosebud Decorative were the other side of Hellish designs and although by the time I got there she had sold lots there was still some gorgeous treasures to be had. It all looked so pretty and inviting.There was a gorgeous little drawer unit, ceramics and linens along with a basket of hand made cushions and a great wire garden display for potted plants ... if we had moved or had a date that would have come home with me for sure!
Cachepot was next to little green door and had the most wonderful display of eclectic wares it
was outstanding, every time you looked around this beautifully set up stall your eye caught something else you had not seen and again taking photos was a real joy. Again I fell in love with the red and white jug and bowl but I felt we have no room for it right now but I am kind of kicking myself about it as I should have just popped it away for eventual move ... I did not stick to my rule, when you see if it, if you love it and have the cash .. get it! ah well.
Well it was time to say goodbye to the fair and head off to the farm shop that was on the outskirts of Midhurst and then slowly meander home and have dinner. It was a great day out and I felt so tired because I was so relaxed for a day... I had missed it and I am so glad to be back. Lets hope today there is no drama and I can at last pick up my needle and thread because my days have not been complete with out it. I hope you have enjoyed a little peek around this outstanding vintage fair and I would like to say a huge Thank You to Lucy Hayward for organising yet another gorgeous Love Lane Vintage Fair ..... It must take a huge amount of work even if it is made to look easy and I can probably speak for all who attended it was fantastic!
Have a wonderful day and with a fair bit of luck I will be back here on Thursday with where I went on Sunday ......
Happy Stitching! XX
