Flea bites

At the weekend Maxine fulfilled a long term ambition and made it to the Giant Flea at the Bath and West where she was well and truly bitten. She took along her 8 year old daughter and they had a lovely time meeting other bloggers and buying wonderful things. She has big plans for this beautiful fabric from Sue at Vintage to Victorian.
So, while the rest of Frome watched Jensen Button, Maxine found treasure after treasure. She loves this Italian jug with the iced gems

and look at the tiny 4ply cup cake, if you can tear your eyes off the doilly.

Now, what would you think Maxine needed like a hole in the head? Another crocheted blanket and a tea cosy! But how could you resist that tea cosy? The blanket is amazing. It has been done with double stranded wool throughout which gives it a luxurious weight which is perfect for a winter blanket or picnic rug. Another project onto the wish list..........

    Lovely finds,I particularly like the cup cake. It's beautifully made! I see what you mean about the crochet blanket, very clever. Must try that one day.
