My first visit to the Country Living Christmas fair yesterday was a whirlwind of Cinnamon scented hearts, rustic garlands and glittering decorations. Manic and busy with thousands of (mostly) Women doing all their christmas shopping in one hit. I got to meet Helen from Rosies Armoire who had travelled all the way down from Lancashire with a friend to create her beautiful faded vintage booth filled with beautiful treasures (more on that in my next post).
It was great to meet some of the creators and designers in person and I enjoyed my time in the bustling atmosphere surrounded by seasonal berries and delicious food offerings. I don’t know about you, but I have quite a few birthday and christmas presents to get, both my sisters have birthdays before christmas and two other friend this week! So this was the perfect opportunity to choose some gifts. It is still a trifle early to be full on with holly and fir trees so I have picked out a few items from my favourite stands for you, will you get to go at all?
(I apologise for the poor photo shopping of the beautiful blue ceramic bowl, it was very late last night!)
