Car boot sales are the best.
Well, they're right up there with flea markets, charity shops and jumble sales. All so full of promise - it makes me excited to just think of it! Sunday saw the first one of 2009 and although it was super-cold and about the quarter of the size it usually is, I still winkled out some lovely things.
I have (somewhat foolishly, perhaps) told a friend or two about this, my favourite car boot sale, and in doing so piqued their interest. I shall have to be as cunning and wily as an old fox if I am to maintain my success rate now I might have direct competition!
What a combination, birds AND Russian dolls. They have such forlorn little faces as well.
A Swedish wall tile. Beautiful.
Everything is better in miniature. Well almost.
I am collecting a few of these old Agatha Christies for a friend's birthday. I love the covers, surreal and macabre.
Oh and these things too - a embroidered wool shrug, it's really beautifully finished with beading and lovely detail. And another piece of embroidered fabric to add to my huge fabric stash...
