THE DELIGHTS OF THE COUNTRY LIVING CHRISTMAS FAIR !!!! Thursday saw me travelling up to London to the delightful CL fair to meet up with some lovely bloggy ladies Rose, Victoria and Kelly. I certainly wasn't disappointed so much gorgeousness under one roof was to say the least bloody amazing !!!

These photos are completely rubbish I know but there was so much to look at I really didn't know what to look at first it was all so nice, so I apologise.

I know you don't want to hear me waffling on you just want to see what goodies came home with me, I know I know get on with it Kate.........

My first purchase was this lovely bunting which I bought to cut up and either frame or as the lovely Kelly suggested sew onto cushions and the union jack Christmas stars.

Next came more patriotic bunting and these gorgeous paper chains, do you see a theme developing!!!!

I couldn't resist this lovely cushion and really wish I'd bought two.

Next came these lovely lavender hearts these were only £5 so a real bargain, and these pretty tea towels which will be made into something else don't know what yet though.

These are gorgeous ribbons from Caroline Zoob and are on wooden bobbins, and lovely little red embroidered bunting.

I didn't even realise this offer was on until I met up Victoria and Kelly in the afternoon, if you subscribed to Country Living not only was it nearly half price you got a free Jan Constantine stocking WOW.

This is all the brochures and cards I picked up so I can spend more time on the computer looking at more gorgeousness.

So all in all a very successful day it was so lovely to meet up with Rose, Victoria and Kelly my bloggy ladies in 3D as my boys called them, they were all lovely and I'm sure we could of chatted for hours, it was such a shame more of us could have made it but maybe next time?

Speak soon

I had no idea there was a whole country living show. I have only just recently discovered the magazine and I love it! We are about 2 months-ish behind so I have so far only seen July and August 09.
