Tunbridge Wells in Kent is a Royal Spa Town where royalty and the upper classes would visit to 'take the waters' in the 17th Century. It's full to the brim with stunning Georgian architecture and you can just imagine the 'toffs' taking their morning constitutional  among the colonnades which line the Pantilles. The lower part of the walk was for the 'hoi palloi' and the raised part for the 'toffs', you can see the 'upper classes' walking along the colonnade in first picture! I don't think I would have adhered to that rule haha! This was the gorgeous setting for the vintage weekend that Sophie and I visited today. We both have a penchant for anything vintage so this was just up our street or colonnade! There was fabulous music, fashion shows, vintage stalls and a really great atmosphere. We stopped for something to eat and to just soak in the atmosphere. But........we have both decided to be more discerning regarding our vintage other words we are fast running out of space to store them! And, wonder of wonders we came away empty handed, probably a first!! LOL! But we did come away with some great photos which I hope you will enjoy.

On our way to the vintage fair we just had to pop in and see Jessica Lilly the new and much loved and cuddled member of our family. She changes every time we see her so many photos are taken on every occasion.  I took these this morning when she had just woken up but she still had smiles and goo goo talk for us!!  Can you guess I am a proud Glammie! A happy weekend to you all xxx
