Sunny Artweeks Sunday

A gorgeous day with friends pottering around the countryside looking at vintage prettiness and art - what could be nicer?

Found and Sewn's beautiful Artweeks show

The day started with a browse around Station Mill Antiques Centre in Chipping Norton, before lunch and a potter around the vintage china at the Applestore in Batsford Arboretum. I had a jolly good rummage through the pick n' mix china and came away with this beautifully mis-matching selection :)

We then moved on to the beautiful village of Chadlington for the highlight of the day: the Artweeks show by the very lovely and talented Found and Sewn. Vicki designs and makes beautiful vintage textiles and collages. Her show is set-up in an oh so pretty summerhouse and tea and cake is served outside in the garden in a lovely selection of vintage china. You *must* go if you get a chance - the exhibition is on until 27 May.

We then had a lovely meander through the countryside in the sunshine taking in some more lovely Artweeks shows along the way and enjoying all the pretty gardens. A thoroughly lovely way to spend a Sunday!
