Farmer's Market

First day back home!

Every Thursday in the next village, there is a little farmer's market. We moved house a couple of months ago from London, and so we're really not used to this sort of thing! Even though there are only a few stalls, it's such a lovely thing to be just around the corner from. Everything sold is either from local businesses, made locally or grown locally, so it's a really nice way to help the local community too! I like going for the homemade cakes and sausage rolls! I think the setting of the market plays a part in making it special too, situated in the grounds and inside of the village church, which really is beautiful! 

  I've been home since Wednesday afternoon now, and it's little things like this that I've really missed! I feel so lucky to live where I do, with fields just surrounding our house, villages scattered over the countryside, with local pubs serving puddings and custard, and an abundance of National Trust sites! 
What do you like about where you live? What are some of the little things that remind you of home? I always find that when I'm at Uni, it's the little outings, homely meals and countryside walks with my dogs that I miss! 
  I had been looking forward to posting some outfit posts in the pretty backdrop's around here, but I'd only feel comfortable with my sister taking them, and by the time she's home from school it's way too dark for photo's! I'm going to have to try and work out a way around that!
  Hope you're all having a lovely Friday, and have an amazing weekend! It's my sister's 18th birthday party tomorrow, so I'm so excited about getting the house decorated, getting dressed up and seeing my entire family! I'm also planning on baking her a birthday cake, I'll let you know how it turns out, eek!
  Ooh, PS! I changed the url of my blog today, so that it actually matches the name of my blog, so welcome to www.charlestownvintage.blogspot.com!!

Love, Charlestown xoxo.



  1. It looks so nice where you live, was it tonbridge? I don't like the town I live in I want to live somewhere nice like that. Can't wait to see the outfit pictures. Have a good time at yous sisters birthday.x

  2. Looks like a lovely litte market. How wonderful that you love the pace where you live! I think it's hard to choose where to live. I love the endless choices of living in a city but I would still love a small house on the countryside. I guess my dream would a small house in a small town pretty close to a big city :)

    Have a great weekend! //Niina
