Love Vintage Show – Day 3

…Some more photos of the last day. The green clock was a favourite and I was happy it went to a great home. The lovely couple below let me take a photo before it was wrapped up and ready to go.
It was lovely seeing so many mother/daughter visitors. It  is a great day out to spend together. Ofcourse the whole weekend had people dressed in the most exquisite outfits. You really felt you had stepped back in time!

At the DILMAH Charitea High Tea

Today we had high tea at The Langham (formerly The Observatory Hotel). The event was to raise money for the MJF Foundation or the Merrill J. Fernando (DILMAH founder)Foundation which was set up to benefit the underprivileged as well as nature conservation. Over the years they’ve helped tens of thousands of children better their lives. High Tea was amazing and the talks were very interesting. Thanks Lorraine for tickets.
