Monday's thrift

Well the weather is good albeit slightly breezy. Not hot enough for the beach yesterday but good enough for a walk in the countryside ..................................... around the car boot, well it's better than being stuck in a supermarket.

Here's a few of the goodies from this week and last.

Primrose teacups with 1 saucer and a rose saucer.

A rose oil lamp and a floral lamp base.

Plates - floral, pansies and roses.


An embroidered cushion cover.

A couple of rose bowls and floral pots.

Floral jug and bowl and a rose jug and saucer.

A pink jug.

Cut glass candlestick & jug, a round glass jelly mould, which I have wanted for ages, embroidered tablecloth.

Snowflake pyrex casserole, sauce dish and saucer.

A lovely wooden dolls highchair for Lily and a Blackberry farm book.

Some 70's cookery books and a 50's Stork cookery book.

Every Girl's Handbook 1961.



And finally in my opinion a really cute dog and a couple of brooches.


While I was outside taking the photos (5hrs ago) I found this little chap tweeting for his mum and the poor thing is still there!



Sparrow chick.

What a lovely goodies!

Thank you so much for being the first to comment on my newly transferred blog - it sure has taken a LOT of time to re-establish and I was relieved to be able to import everything except the sidebar. My old one is still stuck ... oh well.

Hope to see you there!

best wishes
