A successful trip to an antiques fair.

This is a bit special, French, the colours and design are wonderful, I think it dates to around 1900.
One of my favourites, thanks Lizzie, its so pretty! I shall be keeping some of this! French again, maybe dating to 1900-1920.

  1. Lovely to see you at the fair, glad you like the fabric that you got from my chaotic stall!

  2. Hope you did well, it was fun! All the best, Lois x

  3. Hi Lois,
    Stunning fabrics! You can't beat the French fabrics from the 1900's can you? (I also have some of the bird's so soft and of a fabulous quality...Lizzie and I were at the same place at the same time buying fabrics ;-))

  4. It never ceases to amaze how much fabric still remains in France from the period. I suppose the brits have an ethos 'chucking things out' whereas the French keep everything! By the way, I love your candles!
