Pennies spent well at the antiques fair

Well I got a good haul of lovely things to add to my Christmas stock from Stoneleigh Antiques fair.  I had never visited this fair before and is a good size if you just fancy a few hours browsing unlike the other larger fairs where you could stay all day!

I found a lovely vintage sewing basket, some 1970's fabric samplers, vintage tins, a fab royal winton tea set, a hand painted tea pot, a gorgeous Liberty of London purse and wallet set and my personal favourite, a retro cat egg cup!!!

A day out in oxfordshire

This weekend we took a day trip out to the Cotswold's and then on to Oxford for a bit of shopping. A good day was had by all! We ate scones in the Cotswold's and pizza express in Oxford both were delicious (back on the diet today boo). A visit was also paid to The Cotswold Cheese Company a lovely deli based in Morton in the Marsh. This shop is a food dream full of interesting foods and loads of lovely local cheeses. We brought some speciality cheese and some olive bread...very very good!

I also treated myself to a Barbour international jacket I have been longing for one for sooo long and when I come upon a shop in Oxford that literally had a whole floor dedicated to Barbour I had to have one!! Start to save the pennies again now :-(
