All change on the Top Floor of The Dairy House!

Another busy day over at the Dairy House as we have been Spring Cleaning and extending the Top Floor Emporium once again!

The plan is to introduce more small items of furniture as well as the essential bits and bobs that make a house a home.

It is the time of year to think about the garden, so we are expanding the range of items and accessories for the  garden or conservatory.

Floral French China is jostling for table space with 1930's frosted lemonade glasses........

 Of course the weeks are flying by, and the much anticipated 2nd Annual Vintage Textiles and Costume Day is not too far away. Sunday April the 10th is a must for your diary. There will be a fabulous range of outside stalls as well as all the regular Dairy House folk showing a selection of Beautiful Antiques, Paintings, Silver, Ceramics and much, much more....

On the top floor there will be a Vintage Boutique as well as our eclectic mix of items for the Home and Garden. I do hope you can make it!

Paper fancies from the past

This week I was a lucky girl! I bought these delightful paper items from the Honiton Fair. I am an absolute sucker for old ephemera, toys and images from the early to mid 20th century.

There were a number of these crepe party hats in several designs and colours......

Then there were these 3 paper and card storage containers that must have been filled with sweets and gifts.

All in amazing condition considering their age and fragile construction.

 Just love this little chap on his own personal ski slope!

 Then there is this little gem. Oh to have time to make fancy dress costumes out of crepe paper!

I will be keeping and enjoying these for a few weeks. They will then need to come with me to one of the many fairs that I am selling at in the next few months. See the blog sidebar for details.
