Last Tuesday I took a little journey westwards. Through every kind of weather - rain, sleet, hailstones, sun, wind and snow when I arrived in Honiton. See if you can guess where I went...
 Yes the Honiton Textile, Costume and Decorative Items Fair. This little chair caught my eye. I love anything nursery sized or to do with childhood nostalgia.
 I was pleased to see Liz The Washerwoman and picked up some bits and bobs from her. Tatty old Ladybird books for 50p each that will find themselves getting the suitcase treatment at some point as well as a great apron I've got plans for.
Both the above pictures are of Liz's lovely stock and she also has a doubly useful blog - good to read but also the biggest calendar of vintage and textile fairs you could wish for.
 I was intrigued by the necklaces from Barmy Buttons and after trying them on settled for a double sided one - turquoises on one side and then flip it over for a new blue look on the other.
Whilst I was ambling I was approached by Alice from the Homes & Antiques stall. Alice promotes the magazine through attending vintage events and writing them up on the H&A website. She asked to take my picture (yikes!) with my purchases.
 It is no longer an apron but not quite anything else yet!
