Last Preparations


Tomorrow is the big day of the very first Yvestown Fair, something I've planned way back in May.

I'm writing this post in the middle of carrot cake and Victorian sponge baking, filling cups with my favourite sweets and all sorts of other preparations. I'm having so much fun, this is definitely my kind of thing.


There is cake in the oven, 14 tables on the trailer, the Toi Toi is gleaming in the sun, Bo is mowing the lawn and I'm waiting for the DHL guy to deliver 250 free copies of 101 woonideeën magazine (the press sponsor) for you to take home. And the best thing of all ... it's going to be 24° tomorrow with clear skies and no wind.


I'll be MIA for the weekend but you can follow me on Instagram (scroll all the way down this page for the widget) and Twitter @yvestown. Make sure to follow #yvestownfair to see what all the other people attending are up to. And if you are attending and using Twitter or Instagram don't forget the #yvestownfair so we can all look back at the photos.

101 woonideeën already blogged a preview of the fair. They will be here taking pictures for their upcoming November issue and there will be a TV crew for something new I'm working on but what is still a small secret.

Love you all and see you tomorrow in my garden or next week on my blog,
