Oooh it’s all about the inspirational day trips out for me at the weekends. It was a journey to Wooders this weekend. Chauffeur driven (well by Mummy Butterfly)in a convertible with oversized sunnies and the wind rustling through my hair.. anyway the sun was shining and everyone was smiling. What a fab selection of stalls. It was so good I purchased from the 1st two stalls! An exciting & eclectic mix of goodies to buy from antiques, lampshades, vintage clothes to amazing paintings on canvas. My new favourite craft friend Mrs Bobo Bun was displaying her wonderful creations (she is the reason I knew about this event) check out her beautiful things & storytelling blog. I’m convinced her great grandmother was Enid Blyton – read the intro and you will see. She’s a very talented lady.
Anyway back to the market – there is another in September at which I hope to be displaying myself.
If you have never visited Woodbridge, then you are truly missing out. It’s a very cute town with some beautiful boutiques – and charity shops with hidden gems. Don’t tell anyone but I bought a brand new Missoni scarf from one for £3 and some brand new Gap yeans from another for £3.50. Ok so I did feel a little guilty, but I wasn’t working at the time.

I have a blind date this weekend. Now there should be nerves & anticipation over meeting my potential Prince Charming, but all I can worry about is what should one wear??? Well I think something you feel comfortable in is important , but jeans or dresses, heels or flats (in case he is shorter)???? I am still none the wiser, however maybe dressy & girly is possibly better than cool. To avoid making a faux pas I am in need of guidance, does anyone have the answer????
Thanks from, Butterfly xx

My very stylish friend C and I whizzed up to gorgeous North Norfolk last weekend to visit Blakeney for a Vintage Fair. We were racing the rain clouds all the way, but north Norfolk still looks amazing in wet weather. It was sooo worth the journey and quite the loveliest vintage fair I’ve been to. The stalls were overflowing with goodies from all eras and there were so many fantastic hats crying out to be tried on. We forced ourselves to have some afternoon tea – after all who can resist glitter topped fairy cakes on vintage floral china plates? The environment was lovely, everything was really nicely displayed and the attention to detail was a perfect 10. We met some lovely and very talented craft people too, but more about them later.
and find out more. Events not to be missed!!!
