Down to earth

It always takes me a while to get back into the groove after a few days away. But I think I've come back down to earth now. I've had lots of deadlines recently, too, so the blog had gone to the back of the queue. Most deadline things are finished for this month, so I've got a couple of days to prepare  for a vintage sale on Sunday. It's taking place in Victoria Hall, Oundle, Northants, from 11am to 3pm, if anyone likes the sound of it. I think there are going to be about 20 stalls. I've finally finished the printers tray so I can take it with me.
The gaps are intentional, as it looked too much like an optical illusion when all the little squares were covered. 

I thought it might be right for a bathroom. The paper is washable/vinyl, so it wouldn't mind a bit of steam.

I've got some lovely goodies to take to this sale. Some of them are hard to part with, but they have to go.

I love the giant red and white sewing basket. It's the biggest one I've seen. 

My stall is quite small, so I will have to plan what I am taking quite carefully. I hope to do a trial set up tomorrow, rather than hurling everything at the table in my usual style. Just have a few cushions to make first. See you soon. 


  1. I LOVE the printers tray. Perfect for bathroom indeed. Hope you have a great day on Sunday. M x

  2. Thank you! It's really nice to get feedback. That's why I love blogging.

  3. Good luck for your sale, and love the printer's tray!

  4. I love those blue buttons and if they don't sell can I buy them please? Lucey x

  5. Love your printers tray, they are hard work but worth it! Good luck with your fair! Those buttons are lovely! Ada :)

  6. Yes, they take time but v. rewarding. I used to customise them with tiny trinkets, shells,keys, buttons etc and I have sold and given away lots of those kind, but the wallpaper ones are really fresh. I have no idea if Oundle is ready for them though...what a shame if I have to keep it :)

  7. I am sure you will do very well, your items are wonderful
    Good luck
