27 Tomorrow!

I'm amazed to say that I'll be 27 tomorrow, I'm sure I was only 22 a year ago. I had a lovely family pre-birthday meal on Tuesday and my Nan & Grandad bought me these.

These are also brightening up the living room. A liitle burst of sunshine, a bargainous 50p a bunch from M&S.

Blighty Boutique Vintage & Handmade Fairs latest flyer!

Hi everyone, the Blighty Boutique Vintage & Handmade Fair's new flyer for the March 4th Fair. I will of course be creating a button for you lovely people to share with others on your blog. Excuse the shameless plugs on the blog, but the fair's are such a big part of my life that it seemed only right that they were featured on both the Fair's own blog and my personal blog.

The button will be up just as soon as I've mastered the technology of it all! I struggle every time and think, 'aha, that was all I had to do. I'll remember that for next time...'. I swear by Serendipity Child's Grab My Button tutorial. I've just searched back in Helen's blog to find it and have tucked the post away in my 'favourites'. I use it every time I need to make a blogger button!

The back of the flyer

On the Fair's own blog page I will be setting up and event page too.I'll be setting this up in a week or so and you'll be able to find it using the Facebook Event icon in fair's blog sidebar, which will be active once the event page is set up. You can already follow Blighty Boutique using the Facebook icon in the fair's blog sidebar!

Thank you for the lovely comments on my last post and sorry that I haven't responded to them yet! I'm hoping to get back to blogging properly again soon...well I have bought myself a new camera (it's my birthday tomorrow) so it'd be rude not to use if for blogging purposes wouldn't it!

We Love Dogs!

A selection of vintage dogs sat on my living room dresser

It'll soon be time to distribute our flyers for the March 4th fair, and the essential ingredient in our flyer picture? A dog! Those of you who know my Mum and I will know that we're massive dog lovers and have four between us.

Our first flyer 2011, featuring a little grey vintage dog

We pick something with a vintage doggy theme for each flyer, whether it be an image of a dog on a tin or postcard, or a figurine, there has to be a four legged friend within each flyer image!
