.....I saw a ripe blackberry today.....I must write that down somewhere......sorry, mind wandering!
Here, as promised is my RHS Flower Show at Hampton Court debrief.
This year the theme was Alice in Wonderland, loved it - especially in the rose marquee. Anyway if you have a moment why not join me in a wander around.....
This hut is by Court and Hunt in Sandwich, Kent. It is definitely at the top of my "Most Wanted"!
Now to the Country Living Marquee ~ Always a highlight! This year proved to be no exception.
This year my absolute favourite find was Butterfly Blue . Purveyor of brilliant belts, buckles, Liberty print scarves/belts/sashes.
I fell in love with their Ribbon belts, check them out here alternatively you can see me modelling one badly below (sorry Justine!)
Next, such a moment of serendipity! As I was walking through the centre of the marquee I spied the main Country Living area and displayed on the desk were some lovely fabric covered notebooks by Sophie Azimont. ( You will find her notebooks at Made in Hastings.). I let out a tiny gasp - and squinted my way towards said notebooks. The girls on the desk must have thought me quite odd. I reached out my hand and picked up one of the books, and yes it was......covered in fabric from Jonelle, circa 1970. You may remember my sepia seventies post and recall my penchant for the fabrics from my childhood. Here in my hand, a notebook covered in the fabric that adorned my parents bedroom back then, the fabric I saved from the charity shop, the curtains I recently nostalgically hung at the window of one of the bedrooms here Down the Lane!
My final treasure is a lovely tunic by Gabriella Knight , once again in Tana Lawn. Imagine my smile, when flicking through, YES Country Living on Saturday in their lovely fashion shoot the very same tunic in a different fabric!
Such a lovely day, thanks for joining me x
