Such a treat to get up to town for a day out with a friend. We visited the Country Living Spring Fair at the Business Design Centre. I didn't take too many pictures. Here's a few to give you a taste.
There was a whole indoor garden.

The typewriter cushion can be personalised with your own message.
Gorgeous handmade ceramics by Rachel Dormor.
I wish I could afford a cupboard full of these.
A perfect cream colour, a perfect blue, and such attractive shapes.

It was nice to catch up with some jeweller chums, and get a feel for a different kind of show. Doing a five day show is a huge commitment, financially, stock preparation wise, in terms of time out of studio, and in my case with childcare to consider. It's the last day of the show today, I bet there will be some weary makers heading home tonight. I will think long and hard about this one!
