Saltaire Festival 2012

Okay so I haven't blogged for ages, I have a lot of draft blogs saved on my computer though...whoops

Anyway I went to Saltaire Festival today and the weather was lovely, the sun shone and the streets were packed! There was so much to see and do but here's what I enjoyed...

The continental market is always amazing, with cheeses, bread, pastries, turkish delight and SWEETS!

As well as loving sweets, I do love helium balloons!! They remind me so much of my childhood, although they don't do a Mr Blobby balloon any more :(

I caught up with some crafty friends which was lovely...

Spring Lark had a fabulous looking stall, Melanie is so friendly and I love her textile machine embroided items, especially the lavender scented hearts...

DaisyFlorenceDesign creates hand embellished textiles. Here are her pocket sized mirrors, how individual and girly are these?!

Inkylinky Jewellery makes the most unique handmade jewellery, I have never seen anything like it, look at this hand etched house necklace, so individual and wonderfully handcrafted.

Petits Bijoux and I did our first ever craft fair at the same venue and I love seeing how Emma is getting on and developing her work. These white druzy square studs are just beautiful.

Quernus Crafts makes the most amazing cute and quirky polymer clay animals, I could spend hours looking at Kirsten's stall and creatures...she seems to have endless ideas, I could talk about her creations for hours! I am hoping to commision Kirsten to make my pets into wee creatures, she seems to be able to make any animal and creates for all occasions...check out these patriotic mice...

After a lovely inspring day I came home to confirmation of my next craft fair The Shipley Alternative so I am excited about that as it's less than a month away!
