I had decided that I was going to be good this year and one of my new years resolutions was to have a clear out and thin down my collections.  I need to be able to display what I have got rather than keep adding to it. 

I made a start,  I sold one of my dolls on Ebay, felt good, I was doing what I needed to do and I also sold some of personal items at the Vintage Jumble in Northampton - another pat on the back. 

Alas I have to confess I am weak and before I knew where I was I found this little wardrobe that a dad has made for his daughter at some stage being sold by Sarah of Salvaged Style in Most Marvelous at Towcester.

 and before I knew where I was I had taken it to the counter and purchased it....  Mind you I knew exactly what i was going to use it for - I had a space where the doll had stood and I had some bears that were looking for a new home,  so there you are.....
We wnt to Spittlefields Market a couple of weekends ago and there was a vintage fair on and the first stall I came to had some packets of snippets of barkcloth in them and I bought three packs.  I have a lot of vintage photos and also some old cigarette cards that I have been looking for a use for and knew as soon as I found the material what I could do with them. 
some blank greetings cards that I will take to the next Vintage In the Shires Fair in Olney in February.  I like to take new hand made items to the fairs to compliment my vintage finds for sale and hope these will go down well.
