Are you a Little Devil?


As it's the day of lurve, we'll be waiting on Jack Valentine. Sometime today he'll be knocking on the door, leaving a bag of goodies for the Bun's and running off before anyone sees him. A very good Norfolk tradtion this one, but getting harder to get away with as the Buns get older and wiser.


On Sunday I was at Little Vintage Lover fair for some early Valentine's trading. I had a great day catching up with friends and chatting to new and interesting folk. My favourite customer of the day has to be an elderly lady who swooned with delight when she saw a pale blue glass jug I was selling. As a child her gran used to send her to collect the milk from the milkman in the same jug. She'd been looking for one the same for years and was beside herself with joy once her search was over. Selling found objects to people who will love them makes complete sense to me.


Inbetween chatting and all the hard work selling I sampled the cupcakes and made my lips sparkle with glitter.

I also did a wee bit of shopping, only two temptations. One of Tracy's beautiful vintage felt brooches had to come home with me.


This splash of sunshine fabric also leapt in my bag and insisted on coming home with me. I knew that it had to be mine as it was love at first sight.


It certainly wasn't love at first sight with Mr Bun and I, it was laughter. Once we found out we both had a naughty and devilish sense of humour we got up to all sorts of mischief together - the mischief keeps us sane still. 

What are you a little devil or a cheeky cherub?

  2. I don't think anyone would describe me as being a cherub!! Definitely being a little devil is much more fun!! ;)
    Jack Valentine sounds like a lot of fun, even though my kids are both in their twenties they still get their chocolate hearts!
    Have a great Valentines day. :)

  7. Guess!
    I reckon a similar sense of fun is what keeps Slap and I contented... I only found out recently that GSOH in the small ads actually stands for Good Sense of Humour, not Great Set of Hooters as he'd told me years ago, not my finest hour! x

  8. Love your sunshine yellow fabric, very cheery. I would have brought that one home myself. Adorable love birds figurine.. The hubby & I had love birds on our wedding invites.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
