All in a whirl!

Sunday saw another Little Vintage Lover Fair and a wonderful day it was too. There were Zoe's sparkly cupcakes, of course...
and I was very lucky to have delightful neighbours as ever... sorry for the photos but it was still quite dark when we were setting up and too busy to take pictures later! This is the stall of the lovely Daniella of Acorn and Will - she'll be back in Norfolk for the Pick 'n' Mix in a couple of weeks time.
and next to her was a blast from my past...the delectable Saffron Paffron of Paffron and Scott with her covetable mid-century wares -
I took a lot of my smaller utility china pieces to sell... yes sell! And I found this one but passed it on to Daniella who also bought most of what I sold! This piece was interesting though - I've never seen two-colour pieces...
so a new back-stamp for the collection too!
Did I buy? Do bees make honey? Of course I did - you've seen the Acorn and Will website?! Irresistible! Two beautiful brooches... so many colours I just couldn't decide upon only one!
a few vintage decs... a bit more than I usually spend but these ones were very special!
and some larger utility china pieces to replace the small ones I sold... well what did you expect?!
There has been a bit of excitement for the beautiful boy - a while back we submitted our pictures to Culture 24's 'Museums at Night' competition - and we won in the action category with this picture - 'Three Boys Running'. The boy is delighted.
And you know how I love to be given flowers - in the last week I have been given lots of roses by friends .... the sort that never wilt! Oh lucky me!
Hope you're all having a good week. Mrs BoboBun and I are off to Holt tomorrow - getting all the final preparations in place for our market. We are so looking forward to the big day! One more week of school before the Christmas holiday begins so a week of market preparations juggling with school events and shows - doesn't it all just come at once?! t.x

Laughing my head off here this morning. I bought the same brooch (except mine's red) from Acorn and Will, and also bought the same fold-out Christmas decoration from The Vintage And Handmade Fair. These events are just wonderful...... Roll on the next one! :O)

Thanks, I think, for telling us about Acorn and Will... just visited their site and bought, so it's all your fault!! Lovely post as usual, and good luck in Holt. I am off there tomorrow to buy birthday pressies... mine!!

Saw some of your latest vintage goodies on Flickr. They're delightful! What really makes me jealous, though, are those cupcakes.

I'm in desperate need of a tea party. Thanks for a virtual one!

Is the china stuff you collected and you are now selling or did you have a hand in making it somehow? I'm guessing not but just curious. Lovely fabric and those birdie broaches are so sweet! xxx PS Wicked three boy photo! Well done! xxx

Hey!
If only I were very rich and had a chauffer to pop me to these wonderful events, to buy!
Lovely post, really enjoyed it. Congrats on photo winning. x
