The Hand Sale in Notting Hill is a craft fair that I just cannot resist, it only takes the smallest amount of persuasion and I’m there. My will power is minimal when it comes to beautiful handmade goodies and an invitation by email and a nudge by my friend Sarah was all I needed to hop on the bus.
I didn’t have long, about 40 minutes to whizz around, but I still found some sweet little objects I could not leave without. Here they are.
This little ceramic bowl is by Fliff Carr, the bird image came from an old book of her father’s and I love it.
These little spoons are from Kirsten Hecktermann; a girl can never have too many beautiful spoons!
I photographed them on a postcard of a painting by Pierre Soulages which I bought at his exhibition at the Pompidou Centre a couple of years ago, it brings back lovely memories of a birthday trip to Paris with my husband.
Lovely little things to make a girl happy. Happy Friday everyone.
