Here's a little round up of my finds from the last week or so. I have been trying to rein it in a tad, not sure how successful I am in the general field of reining-it-in, but it's an attempt nevertheless.
Buying books for their covers. That's a bit naughty isn't it? I bought three yesterday.
Pretty pertinent, eh?
Anne Bancroft smouldering, impossible to resist.
A vintage Cadburys tin, for storing odd and ends in Iris's room.
A pair of cowboy drinking glasses. We're well catered for the glasses department as you might expect, but I could hardly be expected to walk past these could I?
A pair of pom-pom adorned slippers. I already have a pair of these, which I bought in the full knowledge that they were too small for Iris, I bought them because I thought them beautiful. So when I saw these in the window of one of our many charity shops, my heart went *skip* with excitement. But alas! They are also too small! A new collection in the making, perhaps?
A part of a child's teaset in a fetching shade of blue. As it's plastic (although from the 1950s I might add) it'll be perfect for playing with in the garden.
A diecast model of a man riding a white horse. The man is minus his head and one arm but that was really why I bought it. A curiosity, no?
And a little china deer.
p.s. I'm still canvassing opinion on the post below, do let me know what you think about my shop idea!
