The Weekend x

IMG_2816I often think what a strange beast Blogging is, even when people ask me what I do I rarely say ‘I Blog’ because it seems so nebulous and unexplainable.  But I still love the feeling that there is this hidden river of energy surging on a creative current running between all of us, between all countries that all our posts filter into. I wonder if I dipped my finger into it would I see sparks?

On Saturday I was so lucky that, by pure fluke, I actually managed to ride the cyber-wave and meet up unexpectedly at the South Bank’s Vintage Car Boot Fair with two fellow bloggers that are close to my heart.

The lovely Kaori at Twist and Turn (click here for her post on the day). An artisan knitter who, if you can believe it, knits with her fingers.  How cool is that? – this I HAVE to see.

And the wonderfully creative Vintage Attitude who up-cycles and re-invents everything to do with material – I’ve already given her a commission to find a new life for a beautiful embroidered tea cosy that just sits in my drawer.  I Hope we get longer to talk next time.

IMG_2842IMG_2806It was such a lovely day..a shopping event without the obviousness of a mainstream megahit.

IMG_2852Where red London buses were converted to bars.  I’ll catch the new number 6 any day of the week..

IMG_2815And where even a Rolls joined the car booty fun..

IMG_2853The spirit of the day was totally embraced.

IMG_2858 IMG_2839 And larger vans converted to cook pizzas on open stoves – check that fire. Some even sold lobster!

Out of that weird power of the internet we made a connection.  The intangible became real.

IMG_2809And now I have new friends. How special is that?
