Little weekend finds
I am absolutely determined to do as little of my Christmas shopping as possible on the high street this year. There are so many bazaars, craft and vintage fairs popping up everywhere that it shouldn't be difficult to achieve. I went to a church bazaar yesterday and found a bunch of these Chinese lanterns. I love the way the orange glows. I walked home along the lanes with them as the light was fading and it was like carrying a torch. They are destined to be decorations.
A friend had a stall at the bazaar and she makes these dolls using old linen that she inherited.
Today, I went to two more small local sales, a vintage and handmade and a Christmas craft fair, all happening within five miles. It was lovely to see so many different crafts and styles. I could not resist this beautiful tin from the vintage fair:
Or these handmade Christmas cards by Jessica James:
So, my Christmas shopping is a step further along. I hope all sellers had a good weekend.
