More Lace and Old Flowers




What a lovely day we had yesterday Tony took me to the Lincolnshire Antiques Fair it was huge over 3000 stalls. We walked miles my feet are sore today but it was well worth it. As you can see I found some more antique lace and some old silk and velvet flowers they are so pretty. I was looking for a mirror for my bedroom and I found the lovely gold one with the cherubs on the top and then I spotted the old metal one and could'nt resist that one too. They both need a little restoration but nothing major Tony can sort them out, and they only cost £15 for the two. I also bought something else which I love I will show you that tomorrow. I have never seen so many beautiful things in one place and it was funny to watch people trying to load things into their cars which were never going to fit. There were some beautiful French Glass light shades they were a bit expensive but I think they are worth the money. I have been dreaming all night about where my goodies will go and what lovely thingsI can do with the flowers. Hope you all had a good day.

What beautiful things! 3000 booths! I've never heard of anything like that. I would have walking around for days and wouldn't want to leave. Can't wait to see what else you bought!

I love your mirrors, 3000 booths to view it would have taken me ages to see all of them, so glad you had a lovely day.
