Last Sunday was Patches Fair time! In my books that means admiring the work of many talented artisans and craftspeople whilst enjoying a warm cup of coffee and purchasing some bits and bobs as a nice token.  Just like with the previous editions, last Sunday's fair was definetely worth visiting, the only difference being some hot, tasty mulled wine instead of the usual coffee...:)

A number of colourful stalls showcasing and selling vintage jewellery, hand-crafted items and accessories, artistic soap boars, ceramics and crafts greeted us and as I made my way in I tried to ignore the two shiny brooches nicely displayed in the first stall on my right.  We made our way inside and I made sure to visit my friend at their "My Kitchen Counter" stall stocked with yummy chutneys, jellies and sauces. Then we also got to admire the many hand-crafted items in the other stalls; the embroidered accessories, handmade greeting cards and crafts. I also craved the numerous cute cupcakes on some of the stalls and got me a glass of warm mulled wine - to die for, as you can tell from the pic :D



I couldn't resist not buying the brooches - but you probably know me so well by now.... Yep, I bagged me a couple of brooches too :D


The rest? The snapshots below speak for themselves; it's tough to give a fairly good description of the words festive, colourful and pretty.
