Epic Weekend Finds - Part One

So, to recap this weekend, I went to the flea market, my favourite vintage clothes shop, a carboot sale and two fetes. A lot of opportunity for thrifting. Which, of course, I took full advantage of. And on reflection, I think we might have to do this in two parts...

Lovely buttons - aren't these two colors great together?



A majestic golden stag.



And a wooden moose.



Jigsaws for the shop - which I will be updating this week. There, I've said it so now I have to do it.





A sweet sad-faced doll, her neck is a bit floppy so she clearly needs a lot of tlc. Iris named her Radley this morning.



An earthenware bowl, I imagine myself making mayonnaise or some such in it.



Pot holders..



Clip-on tiny candle holders for a Christmas tree. Aren't they darling?



And still to come - books (a huge pile), the dress and other spoils from the vintage dress shop.

Fabulous finds - I haven't been to a carboot sale or fete in England for years. I miss jumble sales and coffee mornings. Do you still have them?

Didin´t realize that it was two puzzles. They both looks yummie, but it was the "Jingles" puzzle I meant in the first place :)
