Vintage Loveliness ...

… at the Doddington Hall Vintage Fair this weekend
One of my favourite haunts.
As you may have guessed from past posts.

Gorgeous farm shop, cafe, gardens and house …
… with special events held throughout the year.

A beautiful  setting for their first vintage fair.
The Barn.

... dripping in wisteria ....
... over the French doors opening onto the garden ...
... where they served homemade lemonade and cake on the lawn. ..
... how very English.

Only a small fair with twenty stalls selling delectable vintage goodies ...
… but hope it is the start of things to come.

Decorative Country Living was there with their gorgeous stall

As well as Serena and Julie from the Lincoln Fair 

The sun was shining.
The sky a deep blue.
And as well as the stalls there was vintage cars 

 … and a vintage ice-cream van called Betsy.
Prettily festooned in bunting.


Hope you enjoyed your sunny Bank Holiday weekend.
