Well, that was a restful night, NOT! I woke three times, drenched in sweat and my legs feel like chewed string this morning. For heavens sake - I knelt for 30 mins max to do that bit of weeding! My Bluebell walk with friend Pam is starting to take shape as: I guide her there and sit in the car with a good book sort of Bluebell Walk - she will find her way round the wood without me by her side. Yeesh. I get so few days out too and still haven't had my Birthday Day Out because the weather was inclement and then I have been busy decorating/getting ready for and doing the Fair. Ah well, another sofa day I guess, and I can see the garden starting to get away from me already.
Anyway, the rest of the Fair photos. I did treat myself too, and will put a photo of that up tomorrow.
Rather Drew Pritchard . . . For overseas followers, he has a tv programme (well, several spin-offs of it too) and specializes in what I call grunge antiques. The sort of thing most of us would take to the Tip! Old chairs with the stuffing hanging out, rusty old this and that, anatomical posters like this and many many old industrial lights, factory chairs etc.
A good cross-section of stuff here.
Slightly out of focus teddies - my fault, setting had got altered for distance and I forgot to change it.
A home-made Log Cabin quilt, reasonably recent I think.
I think this had a price tag of around £950 . . .
The wonderful treen stand from Bideford, N. Devon. A long journey but obviously worthwhile for him as he's always here and has such beautiful things. Keith splashed out on an unusual costrel (for me) from him a few years back.
On our friend Paul's stand, a really rare plaster (with animal hair in it) face of a seal I think it was though looking at it now I think it looks rather like a terrier.
He had a wonderful selection of carvings.
Aren't these wonderful (sorry for not totally in focus).
Great skill was used on this lovely 17th C carving.
A nice Windsor chair here.
A lovely selection of things here.
I liked the green Deco jug just to the right of the red and blue plate.
Hmmm. Nothing to take my fancy here!
Right, thank you for all your comments. I will try and reply to them later. Meanwhile I have to keep awake and upright long enough for the boiler man to come.
Some more scenes from my stand. We have LOTS of room, so spread everything out. All very well until it's going home time and lots to pack!
Right, time to try and force some breakfast down . . .
