Homemade and Vintage Fair

We went to a homemade and vintage fair at Thirlby village hall on Sunday organised by Jackie and Sarah,  I took lots of pictures of their lovely wares on sale

There were dressers full of jugs, teapots and old irons, home made jams and marmalades, candlesticks and  tea cosies, 

lots of glass and china and old tools,

 chairs covered in pretty fabrics, bags and hearts,

"the sewing corner"

and the village ladies kept us all filled up with their delicious cakes, scones and shortbread....mmmmm.

I brought a few things home with me that I couldn't resist,

two lovely hand painted glasses, a pretty cup, saucer and tea plate, three fish knives that were made into hooks and a tiny jelly mould,  as soon as I got home I made up a jelly from morello cherry cordial and it was scrummy to say the least!!

"wibble wobble"

I can't decide weather to glue a liquer glass to the plate and make a sweet stand or to just enjoy it for afternoon tea, allready looking forward to the next fair in April,
