One of the key events in the great British summertime has to be the village fete. I love everything about it from Pimms and strawberries to vegetable sculptures, its such an institution.I think its a tradition we should hold on to . We had a flower and produce show this year as part of ours. It was more fun than serious and had lots of categories for adults and children. It was the children however who shone. They produced some amazing entries.

All the winners got a handmade rosette, which we made by sewing several rounds of fabroc together with a button in the centre and some ribbon and ric rac to hang down. It was lovely to see so many being worn at the evening barbeque.


  1. this looks such fun, all the village fetes near here are this weekend and the hubby is away, darn I need to learn to drive asap!

  2. I agree! It is a great tradition. Ours is in 2 weeks time. Guess which stall I am running???? Yep, you guessed it, the clothes stall! Lizzie x

  3. I love the auctioning off of produce at the end of ours. Such laughter as outrageous prices are paid for produce and the cut throat bidding is a hoot!
