Friday finds

There was a small antiques fair on the meadows close to my regular fruit and veg market today, so I arranged to meet a friend for coffee there. I didn't want to buy, because I am saving every penny I can for a new camera, but as we were drinking our coffees I spotted this tablecloth winking at me from a nearby stall. 
It was not expensive, so I bought it, together with three pieces of floral fabric for £2 each. The tablecloth is Chinese, thick linen, and quite unusual. I have had the little rose cups for a long time.

Pretty fabric for cushion making

And when I finally got to the food market, I bought these lovely delphs - the last gasp of summer?

How beautiful are these? A dreamy blue.

Have a lovely weekend. 


  1. What a beautiful, vibrant tablecloth.

  2. Thats a wonderful tablecloth and as for those delphiniums I love that beautiful bluey lilac colour. Ours were lost to rust this year probably because of the damp weather. Have a lovely weekend. We have a Sea Festival this weekend - a first for our little town. Karen x

  9. I have got my eye on those cups....
    Lovely floral images - I wish I could grow delphiniums, each year I try valiantly and each year they are eaten overnight....they are a special flower I think.
    Many thanks
