We went to The Drill Hall to the Lincoln Does Vintage Fair yesterday and enjoyed having a look round.
This was one little corner of the Hall. There were lots of stalls and we had a great time wandering round.
There wasn't much material, sadly, but I did find this piece which is probably 1960s and in a shiny, slippery material. No, I don't know what I'm going to do with it!
On the same stall, I spied these Pyrex bowls. I just loved the colour and was very tempted. However, after a lot of thinking, I decided to go away from them and look round again and have another think. Of course, you can guess what happened - I just HAD to buy them. (Chris rolled his eyes heavenwards).
We headed upstairs for tea and cake and spied two more stalls in the tea room. I had a look and spied, yes, a smaller Pyrex bowl in exactly the same pattern - well, of course, I had to add that one to the collection too! I have since found out that it is the Gooseberry pattern and the bowls are called 'Cinderella bowls' for some reason (more research needed on that one, I think). I just love everything about these - the colour, the pattern, the shape...just gorgeous!
We enjoyed a lovely tea with proper china cups (most important!).
In the evening, my friend Rachael and I settled down to watch Strictly and entered into it with gusto. We had paddles for marking and kept a note of the judges' scores, added ours and Simon was top of our leader board, followed by Pixie and Trent, Caroline and Pasha. It was great fun (aided by some wine, of course!) and we have decided to repeat 'Strictly Night' for the next three weeks. (We predicted that Sunetra would go, and were right.) Here's to Vintage Fairs and Strictly!
