|Sunday saw me turn another year older...Hubby and I were up very early to try to sell-off some old shop stock at the Shepton Mallet Flea Market. Once we were set up, Hubs gave me some pennies to treat myself from the other stalls. I chose this beautiful beaded purse.|
I was also able to buy a few other treasures for my business...Most of which I am saving for the next fair I am attending on 25th May - The Original Vintage & Handmade Spring Fair, Chipping Sodbury.
We had a successful day clearing the stock and also came home with quite a sun tan!
I was then able to put my feet up for a while and open cards and gifts from friends and relatives.
A lovely surprise was this gorgeous boudoir doll bought for me by Hubby!
|A flapper girl hat stand and pretty framed print from my friend Debbie.|
|A stunning handmade pincushion and vintage china picture frames decorated with violets from Maggie.|
|The sweetest silk hand painted Victorian child's hat, scented heart, soap and china dish and handmade lampshade from my friend Helen.|
|I had quite a few other lovely gifts too, plus some gorgeous flowers.|
|Finally, I was treated to a meal out with Hubby and our youngest daughter. We went to a lovely Moroccan restaurant in the centre of Bath.|
|A long, but enjoyable day.|
We thought we'd spend the Bank Holiday Monday a little more quietly...So walked to our favourite local woods...
To see the bluebells...
|It seems to have been a good year for many of the other woodland wild flowers too...|
|The most impressive displays were by the wood anemones...they were everywhere.|
|A little egg lost on the pathway... :( |
|The dark shadows in the lily ponds are carp, enjoying the warm temperatures...|
I hope you enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend too,
