Here are my finds from yesterday's carboot sale - it was really all about Iris, but I must say I'm enjoying that wind-up horse just as much (if not a little bit more) as she is.
A Wind-up Horse - I suddenly have something approaching a drove or string of vintage horses (see here for a fascinating list of collective nouns for animals).
This horse is wonderfully prance-y and quite realistic, so much so that Iris clutched her slice of honey cake all the more tightly as horsey clippety clopped across the table toward her.
Three Tin Cars - these might find themselves on a grown-up shelf if Iris doesn't pay close attention. I heart them all.
A Number 11 London Bus (not actual size) - Well, quite right, London IS the ace place. Especially to us country mice.
A pot for utensils - More graphic abstract linear flowers. Another theme developing...
A lovely book published in 1978 - Yok-Yok The Blackbird and Three Other Stories. Such beautiful illustrations, we have a thing for blackbirds in our house.
And here's another little blackbird especially for Monday!
