  1. Hi, Julie - you bought some lovely things (I remember reciting that rhyme too!!) - hope you sold as well. That Union flag wouldn't have looked nearly so good on an orange mannequin! Abby x

  7. Great finds. It seems we all had to recite that (we sang it) but sometimes the school dinners were so horrible they didn't want a 'thankyou'!

  14. I'm sooo jealous... I would do anything to go to a fair in the UK again... How I miss jumble sales, car booting etc. Hopefully I'll be visiting Blighty this Spring and I'll be able to bring some treasures back. I'm your new follower Laura. Good to meet you! Lx
