2010 – A Very Good Vintage

16 Aug

Phewee pretty exhausted after a few long days at Vintage at Goodwood…and then straight back to work today! Here are some pictures of the festival

Had a great time, and after all as Cariad was started last year as a way to help get me back to uni…and enrolment is w now only a month away, it was amazing to take it along to an event like that and know how far it has come. Thanks to all my friends and the lovely Toan (who was on the stall for 10 hours every day) for all your support xxx

Tea for two…or three

8 Aug

Well this has been a busy weekend, preparation for this week’s impending Vintage at Goodwood festival has meant I have been hitting London’s markets in earnest and am now about to embark on a major plate off. Although, managed to find time for a spot of afternoon tea today, outside on the patio in the (intermittent) sunshine! I used one of the cake stands, one of my favourites with a coronation plate in the middle (click below for images) https://cariadcakestands.wordpress.com/2010/04/20/caking-and-baking/

 I love this one (and it was used today as afternoon tea was to celebrate a young man’s birthday and I thought this stand was a bit more masculine!). Here’s hoping it will find a new home and someone to entertain at the festival this weekend.

Pierre saw quite a bit of action this weekend, think I must have done about 20 miles all in all and I also went to meet my friend off the Eurostar at Kings Cross for a cup of coffee and to collect some new Parisienne plates just in time for the festival. Looking forward to making up some good ones from these, so thanks Ditte!

Now…I better be off as my whole flat is covered in plates and I need to make some and tidy the plates away before my boyfriend gets home (as he is like a giant magnet for plate breaking, he just steps into the room and the plates disintegrate before your very eyes). Although I hope that this, almost impressive in a way, skill for dropping plates and stands will improve before the weekend seeing as he is going to be my glamourous assistant on the stall this weekend.

p.s is anyone else camping at Vintage at Goodwood? My flowery tent (brings a second meaning to ‘camp’) is ready to be pitched, it hasn’t had an outing for a while!

Vintage At Goodwood

6 Aug

1 week to go…very exciting!! Cariad Cake Stands are going to be appearing at the brilliant new festival Vintage at Goodwood. Check out the link below for more information.

More information and details of special offers and stands available will be appearing very soon. Having moved out of one house, been temporarily homeless and then moved into a new house and had my birthday party the past two weeks have been pretty hectic so haven’t had time to update. Promise this weekend will be entirely dedicated to Cariad…….

On the plus point it has meant new stuff for the flat, and some amazing finds on ebay so it’s not all bad!
