Scampston Vintage Festival

Nearly a year ago, I attended the first ever Vintage Festival organised by Britain Does Vintage on the gorgeous grounds of Scampston Gardens and I absolutely fell in love with Vintage Festivals! :)

After waiting for a year, that time has come again and Britain Does Vintage is bringing the Vintage Festival back to Scampston Gardens on 7th and 8th of June with the promise that this time it is bigger and better! :)

In their own words, this is what you can expect:

'Set in the picturesque lakeside gardens of the regency Scampston Hall which is home to the award winning Walled Gardens, this event is set to be the perfect vintage festival!
Let us set the scene -  a fabulous Saturday evening (18:00 to 22:30) of live music, picnics and vintage cocktails, followed by (Sunday 11:00 to 17:30) a relaxed vintage garden party in the immaculate gardens, hundreds of stunning classic cars to admire, live music and afternoon tea on the terrace, as well as an array of the UK's best vintage stalls to discover. Not to forget children's entertainment to keep the kids happy while you transport yourself back in time!'

So excited to be a part of this again!!! This time I will be prepared, got my own vintage dress from the last vintage festival I attended in Scarborough last month, have the perfect shoes and my vintage bag just arrived in the post! :)

You live and learn!

Have not had the best of weeks, having to cancel the fair after all the work, money and time invested in the items I had prepared for my stall... But never mind! It is what it is! :)

Weather hasn't helped either, with the rainiest of weeks we've had in ages but it did allow for another go at wearing my Topshop sheep coat so not that bad after all! :)

Urban Tiles :)

Quick post today, as I have so many things to get ready for my Crafts Fair on the 11th of May in Thornton Le Dale!!!

On with upcycling some furniture pieces using Annie Sloan chalk paint, which is something I got into recently and loving it! :)

Well, mostly anyway, as this magazine rack I'm on with painting in Annie Sloan Original damn nearly had me in tears of frustration!! :)

Will post about that as soon as I have time, but please, if you are around on 11th of May come and see me as you won't be sorry! :) You'll be able to see some of the things that will be on sale if you follow my instagram account @dianaoficial.

But enough about that! :)
