colour at the fair...

 ... I popped along to the Spring Fair today (it's been running since last Sunday & happens every February at the NEC just outside of Birmingham) for a bit of a peek at what will be in the shops soon and to get some inspiration...The show is huge, lots of fun and packed with all sorts of amazing products from Greetings Cards to Homewares, and from Children's Books and Toys to Christmas Holiday trends... Whilst I was there I took a few sneaky pics of some lovely things I saw (I definitely want one of those embroidered lamps!) and thought you might like to see a bit of what's what... As far as trends go, I noticed that there were lots of natural products around, especially those in wood, and also that owls and woodland animals are still big news. There was lots of lovely strong, bold colour and some fab geometrics too. Enjoy! x
