Busy busy - and internet problems
This was the cake at my table for when my dear friend Kim and her boyfriend Tim came to visit. It was all very last minute because I was an egg short for the recipe, and had to wait until my husband bought me some back from town. One half of the mixture was slightly thicker and came out of the oven just 20 mins before my friends were due to arrive. Needless to say, it was bunged unceremoniously into the fridge to keep company with its thinner half . . . I have made . . . lighter! . . . sponges, but it tasted good all the same!
We have been very, VERY busy here. Fleamarkets, both buying and selling at, and auctions, and friends visiting and . . . you get the idea.
Here are a few photos from Builth Antiques Fair last weekend. These are some cheerful crochet animals from a lady who always has a stall there and is very craft-orientated and a keen crocheter.
Two rare (and thus expensive - £150 I think was the price) Aller Vale jugs at the Fair.
You can buy almost anything there . . . From an age when such things were considered stylish (sadly).
There weren't many quilts on display this time, but this one is spectacular.
I just loved this little horse who had been used on a carousel at one time. He was £595 or he might have come home with me!
This was the nicest jewellery stand we saw. Lots of goodies, and all colour-matched.
The Domestic Byegones is always one of my favourite stalls.
Right, off to bed now. Count yourself lucky to have ANY photos the way the computer is playing up!
