Spring Open Day and a surprise party

It was Spring Open Day at the Hertfordshire Craft Collective on Saturday. Spring flowers prettied up the vintage units ...

... And every visitor got a yummy homemade cupcake (thats 250 cakes!) 

I also added these 50s canisters to my own shop. Aren't they fab?

They'd look great in a kitchen with the blue enamel bread bin.

I couldn't spend long at the event as I was driving up to Birmingham for another vintage event -a surprise 70th Birthday party for Gary Walker. Those of you who were around in the 60s may remember an American group called the Walker Brothers? They had some big UK chart hits with Make it Easy on Yourself and The Sun Aint Gonna Shine Anymore. That's drummer Gary in the middle - groovy!

I was a huge Walker Brothers fan back in the 60s and it was lovely after all these years to celebrate this special birthday with his family and friends. Here's Gary on Saturday being serenaded by the 'Walker Sisters'!

And here they are singing their greatest hit.

Spring is officially here at last and the sun is definitely shining this week!
