Some Recent Finds & The Stratford Fair

We love old French trivets which find their way to the UK, they are usually shades of blue from pastel to sky. So when we spotted this fruit bowl in a barn sale in Suffolk it was a must have!

Blue and green and colours we tend towards so I was really pleased to find this set of old Tala sugar shakers (or flour shakers, particularly large pepper pots etc) on one of the stalls in the vintage fair at the Sywell Classic which took place in September. The Putz sheep are German and date from the 1920s/30s, they were rounded up during a recent trip to Suffolk.


The Sywell Classic takes place at Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire. The setting has many authentic buildings from the 1930s and retains the ambiance of the golden age of flying before the Second World War. This year the weather was unkind and it rained for much of. the weekend until the skies cleared on the Sunday afternoon, I headed home to Northampton as a setting sun turned the sky a vivid pink.


I will 'return' to Sywel…
