The Decorative Living Fair!

The Decorative Living Fair is coming to Chelsea! On Wednesday 18th September Chelsea Old Town Hall will be full of decorative antiques, vintage textiles and unique handmade items from over 40 different sellers, and I shall be one of them! Here are some of  the latest makes which will be on my stall.....

I haven't made cushions for a while: it was so good to get creative with beautiful fabrics again. 

I've also been playing around with old maps.....Little fabric sailing boats and bunting on the front of the cards....

open up to reveal real old photographs of family beach-time fun in the 1920's and seashell scraps

There is a tag in each pocket on which to write your message

Some of the cards have butterflies and flowers inside, like a memory of a countryside walk.

If you are interested in coming to the Fair, to save you queueing on the day tickets can be purchased in advance by clicking here. Entrance is £5. 

The Fair runs from 11am to 7pm. Hope to meet some of you there!
