Here is a little report on another fantastic day at the BETTY BLUE EYES HANDMADE & VINTAGE FAYRE at Leigh last Saturday.

Lovely weather all day and over 70 stalls created a brilliant atmosphere at the Leigh Community Centre.

Some amazing traders were there, brimming with new ideas and fabulous things to buy. As always I spent loads on their stalls, from groovy 60s Paris Match magazines at TOOTBAGEYE to the most cutest Scandinavian creatures from NORDIC CHARM

And the best news of the day was that over 1,000 people visited the fair, fantastic!!!

Here are a few piccies of the day....

An already packed venue!

Can't wait for the next fair here on July 7th, see you there!!!!

As the evenings are very slowly getting longer and the sun is sneaking out even more, I thought I would show you some pictures from a recent jaunt to sunny Mersea Island in Essex.

We had a glorious day of gorgeous sunshine, which was perfect for showing up the brightly painted beach huts on the long beach at West Mersea. The whole island is a beautiful place to visit, especially at this time of year when you can enjoy the place virtually for yourself. It really is one of Essex's hidden gems, with the mystery of the sea, interesting architecture and vast expanses of land and coastline that hold a staggering selection of birdlife.

When you have finished your amazing walk then you must visit the splendid Art Café for tea and cakes, and also browse the artwork from the locals!

Now for some pictures.....

The perfect beach hut with the perfect sky!

The stunning contrast of colours on display!

Lovely old boat adding to the atmospheric coastline.
