Super Market Day

Every Saturday there's a flea market in our little town - you can guarantee to unearth some treasure or other. I love it and it's really sociable as you can bump into lots of people you know. It's one of my favourite things to do on any non-rainy Saturday. So this morning it was time again to wrap up warm and venture out into the sparkly January sunshine to see what we could find...

And this is what we came home with:

Another kilo of organic Seville oranges so I can make enough marmalade for the year. We're crazy for marmalade in this house.

Some willow twigs complete with catkins ( hello Spring, I'm so glad you're coming).

A Snoopy mirror for Iris's room.

Another find for my ongoing plate wall, the design is 'La Madeleine' by Alfred Meakin - Paris in the fifties, what could be nicer?

A groovy bowl.

Some pretty fabric covered buttons - they look as precious as gem stones in this photograph.

Some black French cotton lace trim and a paper rose basket needle case.

And a birthday card which plays a song if you put it on a record player!

What a fun morning - and now we're off to the beach to make the most of this sunny but chilly day!
