Today Miss Cottage & I have been sorting out & washing dozens of vintage cups, saucers, tea plates, cake plates, milk jugs, sugar bowls & teapots to use for the teas on Saturday, so you can rest assured they are clean & plentiful!
During the past two weeks Miss C has been industriously sewing some very pretty things which will appear on my table. She really enjoys sewing & is particularly good at machine applique & embroidery (which is why she will be studying Textile Art at uni come September!)
As you can see, she has made some lovely bags & tea cosies as well as adorable embroidered covered buttons & badges (made up courtesy of Michele's trusty badge machine!)
I think this tea cosy has to be my favourite - it took her ages to sew all the strips on to form the Union Jack!
Tomorrow is baking day - don't forget you'll be able to try out lots of delicious cakes at the fair too!
My name is Jayne - I'm an avid collector of all things vintage. I live in a 1930's farm cottage at the end of a muddy lane.
I love my family, pets, horse riding, decorating, cooking, sewing, reading, gardening, car boot sales, auctions & fleamarkets.
I have a passion for vintage which has lead to me starting an online shop & becoming a vintage fair organiser which keeps me busy!
