Five minutes peace........

When the boys were younger (a lot younger!) they had a wonderful book by Jill Murphy called Five minutes peace. A hilarious story about an elephant called Mrs Large who just needed to escape and enjoy a bath.... it has since stayed in my mind and years later I still sometimes feel like Mrs Large, craving for "just five minutes peace"!
Anyway, the above picture shows that after a busy few days at Ardingly Antiques fair I finally got there!
The book seen on the chair arrived from Amazon last week and is proving to be a very enjoyable read and a must for anyone who is potty about Vintage fashion. It is called A Vintage Affair and is by Isabel Wolff, and I am having trouble putting it down!

Had a wonderful 2 day fair at Ardingly & thank you to Lois for putting some splendid photos of my stand on her blog. http://morgaine-le-fays-textiles.blogspot.com/2009/04/wonderful-sunny-day-at-ardingly.html

Calm........

Yesterday I took a break from things (sort of) and drove down to the coast to deliver a few goodies to a lovely lady who has a wonderful shop in Lyme Regis. If you are ever down that way, do make sure you visit a shop in Broad Street called Suzie Cole. It is packed to to the ceiling with scrummy things, spotty china, photo frames, jewellery, vintage knick-knacks and much much more....


Suzie was in the midst of redoing the window, so didn't feel I could start taking piccies, instead I took these peaceful shots along the coast at Charmouth. A real quirky old fashioned seaside.... and beautifully serene at this time of year......
