Royal Highland Show.......

Had a lovely day on Friday at the Royal Highland Show. I could not believe how big the event was. Lots to do and see for all ages and interests. First stop was into the Poultry Tent to see the hens. Below a pair of Silkies, quite funny looking things with the classic fluffy tufts of hair on top. DS3 would love one of these .

Below a cockerel, can't remember the breed but he looked stunning.

I spent loads of time in the Craft tent, and saw some lovely things. They was a great emphasis on bags made from Harris Tweed and some gorgeous knitted jumpers. I bought myself a lovely lacy shawl made for mohair and silk, I think it will look stunning over a sleeveless dress on a summers evening. We just need some decent weather. There was a big tent dedicated to Scottish food and each stand were giving away freebies, I tasted some lovely sausages and cheese, lunch sorted. The day was great and the weather stayed fine.

Hi I saw a stall selling large wooden buttons in the rural craft tent events took over and I never got back to buy any, does anyone know how I can get in touch with this crafter?
