It actually started last Thursday with a 1940s hair demo for local WI group the Golden Triangle Girls. Then Friday was spent sorting flyers and packing sweeties for the Brides to Be of Norwich as we were off to A Most Curious Wedding Fair on Sunday.
Days at fairs are long, but this is actually a really fun one to work at, and we were right by the stage so had a good vantage point to watch the live music and fashion shows all day, with the tea room right behind us for tea and cake.
Number one trauma of the day was turning up wearing the same gorgeous peacock blue Mary dress as No Dice Sugar from Sugar and Hatter.
Trauma of the day number 2 was trying on one of Betsy Hatters new hat designs and falling madly in love with it when my bank balance is disturbingly empty. (It’s on the Christmas list) She can custom make them in any colour, but I am totally in love with this dark green felt.
Considering those were the days biggest traumas I think I got off pretty lightly and it was otherwise quite a chilled day where we chatted with lots of other stall holders and Brides to Be and ate all the rum truffles that were supposed to be treats for customers.
The other thing I did this weekend was a spot of shopping. It seems like ages since I’ve been shopping, I bought a couple of 1920s Women’s Weeklys, with the sewing patterns still intact (shame I can’t sew!)
We also bought a fabulous Art Deco bathroom mirror unit, which I can’t show you as it is wrapped in bubble wrap until it is ready to go on the wall when we do the bathroom. It is, however, similar to this, only with an octagonal mirror, which is way cooler…
The other, very important thing I bought is some fabulous Halloween Tat as a best dressed prize for my virtual Halloween party. I want you to send me photos of your favourite Halloween outfits, past present or future. Upload them to my facebook wall, email them to [email protected] or post a link in the comments on the blog, I don’t mind.
You must send your photos by Monday the 29th October to give me time to pick my favourite and get your tat in time for Halloween! I will post all your photos (if you want me to link to your blog or website them send me a link as well!) on the blog on Halloween, and I’ll also show you my Halloween outfit from this year which will feature this amazing pumpkin fascinator!
The best costume hamper contains – A rather fetching mini purple witches hat (I have removed the plastic spiders from the veil as they creep me out), a string of pumpkin fairy lights, a light up colour changing ghost, a net of chocolate eyeballs and some metallic blue nail polish. What more could a girl want!
