I have just had the most fabulous FRIDAY !!!
First I visited my friend Niki http://nostalgia-stonehouse.co.uk/ . She had organised a Vintage Sale and I was determined to get to it!!
I left early with my teenage daughter and it took us about 2 hours to get there, traffic was good and I had a good old chat with my daughter along the way. One to one without everyone else in the family wanting to chip in, it was great!
Lovely Niki greeted us at the gate and showed us where everything was, as soon as I saw her lovely redecorated kitchen with the new wallpaper that she blogged a couple of months ago I just swooned - I was in the actual picture that I had admired so much - pure heaven.
SOO much inspiration! Her wonderful mum made tea for us and offered gorgeous cake and cookies.There were plenty of pretty places to stop for refreshments and enjoy the garden.
But there was a lot to do ...... so I took my tea with me:))
here are some more lovely things that I purchased.
Niki put out a great display and tucked away under the house was an Aladdin's cave of goodies. You can just see the chair I purchased in the background of this picture, there was some great furniture and I would have taken more home with me if I had the space. Niki's hubby was really helpful lugging furniture and directing traffic in awkward spots ie. ME ...:)
Anyway after the furniture came Aladdin's cave. take a closer lookIt's difficult to see from this picture, but tucked away in the back was this gorgeous wall pocket. I found it on my very last visit back into Aladdin's cave . I am so glad I went back.I nearly bought one of those beautiful books......... but ..... I didn't:))) Some things could so easily have been missed , I was curious by this little blue box?Inside was this lovely little set of bridge cards and mini pencils,
After Niki's we went off to explore the City of Bath, lots of holiday makers, many from the US enjoying the history of the place. The atmosphere was lovely and each time I go there I find different shops. We had such a fab day. But now we have a great place to park and we will return, map in hand.
Thank you Niki and your family for putting on such a great sale.
