Trolley good

This chap will be coming with me to the Foxtail Lilly vintage sale on Saturday. I've had him for a while but the time has come for us to part. I've had a very indulgent day as it's my birthday. The weather is pants again, so I had to forgo my usual celebratory walk to see the lilac and bluebells. Instead, I had elevensies, takeaway cappuccino and cherry and almond cake from the Wansford Cakery (a tiny bakery in a nearby village). Then I did a bit of work, before husband and I walked down to the village pub for lunch. Now I am home and messing about with my stock for Saturday.
I have a new accessory, an absolutely stonking great hostess trolley which I found in Age UK yesterday. It was only a fiver, and it really is vast. 

It is a bit brown, so it might get repainted at some stage, but I foresee many uses for this.

Lots of smaller bits and pieces for Saturday, which require a still, sunny day with absolutely no rain or any elements of any kind. Do you think that might be possible in our crazy climate? I have lots of old toys, nursery things and a very cute old Triang desk and chair.

Now I'm off to listen to my new Richard Hawley cd (thank you to my brother for that) and to make some mini bunting :)
