|Saturday 25th August is the day for The Cotswold's Vintage Fair - More details here.|
I shall be there with some of my handmade items and vintage treasures.
UPDATE: 24th Aug. I've just added a post to my other blog with a few more items that I've just finished in time for the fair. Here.
I've worked hard on a new collection of dolls, each dressed in antique/vintage fabrics and trims, and a few other one-off pieces.
|This is Alice.|
|Her little sister Fleur.|
|And I found this little vintage 'Liberty's of London' rag doll to join them.|
|Fairies include Pearl...|
|And a Fallen Angel...|
|A cute vintage wooden toy bed has been given a new mattress and pillow made from antique French ticking.|
|Aghh...lovely and comfy now!|
|Two baskets with antique French fabric liners.|
|I've made some special hand bags from antique French silk damasks, with carefully chosen vintage appliqués|
|A vintage basket has been given a frilled cover - Ideal for summer picnics, or storing items prettily out of sight in the home.|
|I also covered a canvas in a beautiful panel of vintage Sanderson fabric, to create an unusual picture.|
|A wooden box has been covered in another rare antique French fabric.|
|Inside it are a selection of beautiful buttons, buckles and brooches.|
|A small patchwork cushion festooned in vintage roses, lavender filled scrappy hearts, antique fabric covered Observer book and several pairs of shoe stretchers have been given a make-over with velvet ribbons, fabrics and lace.|
|Some lavender-filled brooch pillows that I made earlier this month can be seen here.|
|A little painted box with fabric insert...and three lovely old bottles have Victorian paper scraps added to them.|
|I applied original c1930's Canadian advertisements to this old painted mirror...|
|I thought it would be a great addition to a bathroom.|
|I'll have lots of genuine vintage treats on my stand too.|
Ali has worked very hard to make the fair a great success - I'm sure it will be a fabulous day for sellers and buyers alike.
|Hope you can make it along...whatever the weather! Find us in the marquee, rain or shine, with other like-minded friends,|
And enjoy the Bank Holiday weekend whatever you have planned! :)
