Today was the Ashley Hall textile fair in Bath. It's a beautiful site as it's held in the assembly rooms, home of the Costume Museum. There's always beautiful things to look at here although it can be quite pricey. It was lovely to see familiar blog faces (Lizzie and Niki) there and to meet a new one(Message in a Teacup). After a quick circuit round the stalls I sat with a coffee and a cheese scone (yum) pondering what I REALLY needed. My husband commented that my fair tactics were like a meal out, firstly the small amuse bouche, the quick look to assess the loveliness, then the main course where I am usually tempted to purchase something and then the dessert, a last look to check I haven't missed anything! It's not usual for my daughter to request 'No dessert please mummy!' but today was the exception. Well, I bought some lovely trims for my adult hats for the V and H (more of those in another post!) from Lizzie. A pair of super cushions for our sofa and lastly a beautiful doll from around the 20's I think. Have a great week.
