The joy of being on half term was marred by coming down with a horrible cold. Something that often happens to teachers during school holidays. moan moan... But i forced myself out on Sunday as i had a pre arranged date to visit Columbia Road Market and Spittlefields. It was very busy but lovely. Don't you just love the bunnies? I would love one for the garden. Please excuse how awful i look in this picture, it was soooo windy and this picture does not do justice to my Vivvienne of Holloway pencil skirt!
I know that there are loads of fabulous shops and of course stalls at the market but i am very broke at the moment and trying to save for the future (actually i should say get out of debt..) I even resisted this most gorgeous dress that was so 1950's blue, flared, halter neck and just perfect. Even my fantastic friend Fiona kept saying get it, i was so proud walking away. Is it bad that i do wish it was now hanging in my wardrobe?
I resisted fabric...
oh and we took this picture because it looked so funny with little building squeeshed in and with the gerkin behind it.
And then after being such a good good my purse is shut girl i spotted this picture................
I could not resist. This photo of it does it no justice at all. It just called me with it's little robin coo. It was on a stall and i hoped he didn't take cards....He did, the bad man. So he came home with me.
Why is it that when you get a picture you have to rearrange the whole house? or is that just me?
So this lovely picture resulted in the whole of my dining room getting a shuze up and a big clean (it needed it!)
The table did get cleared i promise
A nice tidy room has allowed me to get busy with the sewing machine today. Lovely!
Hello! My name is Verity and this blog is all about me trying to learn to do a variety of different crafts as i set up my own craft and haberdashery shop in south East London. If i am going to sell it i better learn how to do it....I also love vintage and admiring the fabulous things people make at home.
