Briar Rose Vintage Knitting

As you may know I have been doing the knit along with the lovely By Gum By Golly and this week I finished the Briar Rose jumper, I'm so pleased, you cant really see in the pics but the yarn has a very subtle sparkle to it. It fits really well and the pocket so so cute.

You can see how everyone is doing on our flicker page.

My vintage Hat purchases.

As previously promised, here are the hats I bought on my little day trip, the first has some of the most amazing coloured feathers on it I have ever seen, non of my pics truly do it justice. The shape is very 60's and not at all me but I couldn't resit such amazing feathers.

And now for some silly pics of me in it! 

 The second is a 50's hat, the shape is lovely and being plain black I can trim it to go with all sorts. 

It doesn't photograph very well against my hair, but I ave the classic shape.

A weekend of bands and stalls.

 May Bank holiday weekend is traditionally the weekend the pub I work in puts on a huge music event, its been going for quite a few years now and this year the boss lady asked me to sort out some stalls for the garden.

Obviously the first person to get a stall was me! Luckily I had plenty of stock already made up. 

 We also had a selection of illustrators selling there prints, cards and other goodies. 

 On the Sunday the lovely girls from Frocks That Rock came and set up a vintage stall, and I found an amazing suit, that I'll show you soon. 

 We were lucky the weather was so lovely and  there was a good atmosphere and although the muso's are all skint we all sold enough to make it worth it. As you can see by this pic taken of me by my friend it was a hard weekend! 

Just as a side note the boss lady of the Fox & Firkin loves supporting us makers and is thinking we could maybe take over the garden with stalls one Sunday over the summer so if any of you are interested in being involved let me know and I'll keep you posted.
