We got dressed up and went to our friends, Liz and Al's converted toll keeper's canalside cottage for dinner.
|Check out that fabulous crimplene.|
I wore a late 1960's crimplene maxi I picked up from Thursday's jumble sale. Aren't I sneaky not showing it you when I revealed my epic vintage dress haul?

I found Jon this 1970's Harris Tweed Baker boy cap from Thursday's jumble sale, he's been surgically attached to it ever since.
Delicious nettle soup, Liz made from nettles salvaged from the river bank served very stylishly in a South American pottery coffee pot.
We also had sweet potato and pumpkin lasagne, homemade spinach and ricotta quiche, tossed green salad with a lemon vinaigrette and vanilla cheesecake with home grown strawberries. As usual I was too busy stuffing my face to take pictures.
We saw a jumble sale advertised in our free paper yesterday.
Our purchases included a vintage chiffon maxi dress, a Nine West purple leather bag, 1970's embroidered slip dress, a leather skinny belt, a beautifully soft Scottish wool and mohair blanket, a fringed crochet shawl and two gorgeous peach 1960's hats.

It was a bit of a late one last night and I'm not even dressed yet. I'd better get my act together as the free festival kicks off at 12.30. Slam poetry, Bhangra, rock and Indian pop music followed by a curry, I can't wait.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. x
