Red and White :)

Wanting to get as many tasks out of the way before The Day (only 2 weeks to go!!) I started thinking (as you do) about a colour scheme for my stall that gave a nod towards Christmas, without going overboard on glitz 'n' gold.

Not having set up shop for such a long time, I confess I'm feeling a tad apprehensive about re-creating the "look" that used to flow so effortlessly twice a week on my round of regular fairs.

Rummaging through the linen cupboard for inspiration I found the scrumptous string of  polka-dot and shabby floral bunting that I won in the Winnibriggshouse Giveaway earlier this year.

Handmade by Jenny, it even has my name embroidered on it, so how perfect is that. . .and what better colour scheme to use on the stall than red and white!

Elaine, I know from what you buy that your stand will be fab!
I on the otherhand will be using the same fabric on my stand that you have already seen!!

oh girls, I can feel a bit of a challenge coming on! I tend to veer towards green.. but who knows? I might do something different this time!!

Thanks Elaine for the kind words...yet again! I really wish you all the very best and know it will go fabulously. Just wish I could be there. Have put both your giveaway and your fair announcement on my sidebar and will include them both in my next post (Hope you don't mind I have borrowed your piccies, but only for this)
