My spring tour came to a close on Thursday and I have been enjoying a quiet weekend with family and friends. The first of May is a bank holiday and there were fairs to be found, but I took it easy. In fact the only fair I hit this weekend was in our village, where I foolishly attempted to shop with Gibson and Ghetto … what can I say? It was a mess!
These mutts are great at country walks and charging around the forest but when it comes to walking in a straight line and on the lead they score 0 out of 10. I took my camera with me to the fair, thinking I might get a nice shot of them in front of a pile of brocante treasure … ha! in my dreams, I was lucky to get out of the place in one piece!
I spent my time apologising to other dog owners and various shoppers, and just managed to buy these few pieces before heading home, promising the hairy hounds that they were never, but really never coming to a fair again.
In the meantime, here are the few pieces I found. I simply love the pair of paintings on soft canvas. Pure 1930’s charm.
I think the copper kettle is grand, and the copper chaffing dish delightful and the verdigris metal platter is divine.
I hope you have enjoyed the first weekend of May, and that the sun shone for you.
Oh yes, and please don’t tell me that Ghetto needs a haircut … we know, it is booked for this week!
