Fuengirola Fair Purchases

Wow! I see it is July already and realise that I have passed my first Blog Birthday! Thank you to everyone who regularly reads my ramblings. Here's to another good year of minis!
I have been slow to write as I had another little holiday, this time to Portugal to celebrate my husband's birthday and the fact he has now retired!
Some of the days I worked on a little quilt which I'll show you soon but this time, as promised I'll show you what I bought at the Andalucian fair in Fuengirola. 
ALL THIS!! When my husband asks how much I spent I only tell him half but still he is shocked!
Bye for now,


  1. Unas compras magnificas Gill !!! me alegra que tu marido se haya jubilado, eso es magnifico ! Portugal es un pais precioso ...espero que lo hays disfrutado. Mariajo

  2. Hello Gill! what you have written about friendship is very nice! I also wish I had a friend with whom to go see the fairs, but this is not possible because I'm alone .. : ((
    Many greetings to your husband for his birthday and well-deserved retirement!
    and many good wishes for your blog's first birthday!
    kisses, Caterina

  17. Yes, it is lovely to go to fairs with a friend. We are like children and save just a few euros each week. When our families ask what we would like for our birthdays and Christmas, we say 'money please! We save all year so that we can enjoy the fair. Gill x
