......talent for textiles.........

last thursday, under the arches of the brownsword hall in poundbury,
the squirrel and lazy daisy enjoyed a fabulous morning
foraging for vintage treasure at the lovely
'talent for textiles' market
a cool breeze created an idyllic setting
which gently wafted through the amazing rails of quilts,
costumes and embroidered fabrics
we felt like we could've been in a French market!
we met the gorgeous alice (serious vintage frock envy)
from the homes and antiques magazine

and generally drooled at all the beautiful stalls..
...and wished we had endless funds to invest....
of course we did manage to tuck a few treats in our baskets
...I have always had a soft spot for a sailor...
....this amazing embroidery was found at
Liz van Hasselts  gorgeous 'washerwomans'stall......
.....where we also found this fabric.....
....but had to resist the shoes....(sob)...
.....and the nun statue which I rather fell in love with....
     ....a truly inspiring market...
.... and definitely one for the diary next time it comes to town!
don't forget to enter my giveaway...
winner to be announced on tuesday!
have a lovely weekend
