In an English Country Garden

The Larmer Gardens Brocante 
My next fair is at the most stunning venue of The Larmer Tree Gardens near Salisbury in a beautiful part of the English country side in the South of England. Not only will it be a jam packed fair filled with great sellars who search out some unique Brocante gems  but the venue itself is completely magical with an open air theatre, beautiful grounds and peacocks wandering around oblivious of all. 

 

I will be bringing along my beloved vintage quilts and French linens collected over many years.

Spring bonnets and millinery are some of my favourite things.

Everything is coming up Roses

Everything is coming up Roses this season,  firstly I was totally spoilt with Roses this valentines. They were all so beautiful.


Then planning ahead for my next fair.

Opening up my cupboards and searching out stock for my next fair I realise that roses r us, they are everywhere ! 
I'm looking forward to my first fair of the season with Vintage Bazaar Events in Devizes, South England, and I will be taking along many beautiful fabrics, linens  and quilts that I have collected over the years. I particularly love roses and have a few quilts and fabrics with a rosey theme, one being this beauty.

A beautiful Welsh collectors piece, gorgeous fabric and hand quilting incorporating hearts and leaves, cross hatching and much more. Most likely a marriage quilt and a quilt that was truly cherished as it is in excellent condition.
Need to sort out some more roses.
