An English Summer and The Old Brewery Antiques Warehouses

An English Summer

For any of our overseas readers you may find the thoughts of an English Summer, idyllic.

The main drawback to a perfect English summers day is without doubt, our weather.

It CAN either slightly mar or totally ruin an event that organisers have spent months preparing for.
A fete, a wedding, a garden show.......

Having said that we are so used to downpours and grey skies we mostly manage to shrug it off.

Bury Summer fete is one of my most favourite real English summer events.....

When I was out walking one day in Arundel park, there was a girl, who lives on one of the local farms, heading off to her wedding.

She looked so beautiful as she clambered into a tractor beside her father.

Wearing the most fabulous wedding dress and black Wellington Boots, the rain hammering down.

She smiled at her father as they head off. No downpour was going to dampen her day. I did have my camera on me, but felt the moment so personal I just couldn't bring myself to shoot it.

Actually, regretted that ever since .

Heres a Sussex Wedding that was gorgeous...and I was able to click away with my camera all day long.

Friends of ours from a little Sussex village near Arundel

Gorgeous hey?

Another very English event......

 Stansted Garden Show coming up.

10th to the 12th of June.
We stalled out last year.
Would have loved to have done so this year but we just have too much on.
If you've never been's well worth a visit 

Here's a snippet of last year's show........

It's fun.............. but hard work to have a stall.

If you like the vintage look.
Join me for a wander around the
Love Lane Vintage Petworth Fair from last year

Love Lane Vintage is a family run business.

Their fairs are beautiful.
Like walking works of art.

Every attention to detail taken care of.

Linens and vintage fabrics as far as the eye can see.......

Our stand

That really was the perfect Summers Day.....
