Fair Thee Well Fair

 Let me step you thru my fair day.

Me and Miss 10 arrived after The Captain missed to turn off and stressed out and went ages then turned back but we arrived lol.
and the 1st thing she spotted was this car and what do you do when you see a classy car.You take pics of course.Miss 10 spotted it first and drooled a little
 and I drooled a bit more
 and then I went straight in to find the darling Kitty it was wonderful to meet here and yes she is just as lovely as in her blog
 Then I took a pic for Scarlett
 Then I met the sweet Trudy from My Vintage Vow

 we shopped together for awhile (she was my shopping enabler) lol no didnt buy this one but liked it.

and she didnt buy this but she liked it (so did I)
 then I saw this

and what does the N do when she sees a top hat????
She tries it on durr lol
then I took pics of more things I loved like this Victorian/Edwardian green velvet coat
 and these authentic victorian leather boots once owned by a collector and in my size just not my price range ($250 yikes)
 Miss 10 fell in love with  this dress awww 1st vintage love who can forget it.
 Me and Trudy drooled over this jacket.Its a band jacket from America. Green - tick,vintage - double tick,just gorgeous - tick, tick,tick, affordable for us - nope.We reckon  Desiree would love it too sadly she couldnt make it today.
and I loved this
 and this
 and then we had lunch with Kitty and she had a goo gaa over Trudys baby Miss V who is ever so cute.Kitty looks clucky doesnt she?(she may not agree lol)
 Then just to make you all jel.Its a group  shot.
 Then Miss 10 found a dress she really wanted but the price was a no no.
 This is a pic for Misfit Sarah the kaftan queen I really liked this one myself.
 This one is dedicated to The Royal hotness Helga lovingly held up by the inKredible  Kitty.
 I thought of Miss Coconut when I saw this one its a GREEEN pantsuit
 and for the Foxy Vixen was this
 oh and whats this??? Another top hat But couldnt get it off the stand so couldnt try it on.

 Then we met this lovely pink haired young lady Issy This pic is dedicated to my other pink headed friends yes you know who you both are Krista   and Karlene Issy has coloured eyebrows pink too and they looked wonderful.She works at a place called Trash Monkey who have opened a brand new store in Brissie plus they have one on the Gold Coast too go check their site out.
 and this absolutely lovely lady (and even after Miss 10 and I said lets not forget her name we went and did sorry lovely lady xx) anyway she had a jewellery shop with steampunk and many other pretty things and she chased us as we were leaving to give Miss 10 the last of her flower rings that Miss 10 had been eyeing off wasnt that so sweet?Anyway her website is Little Black Brooch and she is a doll.
 2 lovely gifty rings from 2 lovely ladies for Miss 10 who thinks both her gifting ladies are the awesomest.Arent her nails lovely we bought this colour for $2 yesterday.

What did I buy did you ask? Well 2 dresses for me plus another 50s one on layby and miss 10 bought her 1st ever vintage dress which I shall be tweaking when we get home.
You want to see them?? Well for that my dears you shall have to wait mmwhahh hahh ha.oh and I also bought 2 pairs of shoes (non vintage but vintage styled)

And that was that
  The captain came and picked us up and this is what we had for dinner 
 Yummy no?


 Wish me luck with kids on 5 hour drive home YUK!

Five hours in a car is like 20 hours in kid time! Hope it all went well, loved going along to the fair with you and Miss 10 - so many treasures can't wait to see what you got.

Nope never tried other colors for my eyebrows, I stick to brown and black.. Crazy colored ones are a bit too much for me, especially when my hair is crazy red ;)
