On Sunday if you went to The Dairy House Costume & Textile Day

you would have been greeted by this pair of likely lads,

thanks boys for your traffic directing and comedy routine.

I apologise to my followers as I only took a few pictures. and selfishly only of my stall, I know that Lizzie, & Sophie, both have posted about the day, so click to see more.

I was very happy with the look of my stall it was floral, pretty & summery.

I had kept certain items especially for the day, framed Lucie Atwell, the Liberty fabric screen, William Morris eiderdown, cushions, the most beautiful hand embroidered/drawn thread silk table cloth, a beautiful old toile piece with two entwined love birds, a lovely wirework embroidered piece and the two beautiful patchwork bedcovers. Also the fantastic oilcan, that has been converted into a table lamp (just seen in the picture below).

Under the verandah we had a lovely day, although at times Helen and myself were laughing so much that our customers had to be tended to by Donna and her Mum!

In between the frivolity I sold some lovely fabrics some of which went to Clare, who sources the most beautiful fabrics to make her fantastic bags, of which a gorgeous brightly coloured Sanderson floral will soon be appearing in her vintage range.
