Stay tuned!

I can't believe it's been so long since I last did a post!
Since Easter so much has happened, from losing both of my Grandparents in the space of a few months,
to job hunting etc.
I've also been busy decorating and de-cluttering!
And planning an Etsy shop.
So for months we have been sourcing and hording stock.
Now I need to get back in to the swing of things and keep posting!
Keep your eyes pealed.

Dawn reaches the grand old age of 30!

So it was Madam Dawns birthday on Thursday and she was well and truly spoilt!
I wont bore people with the entire array of gifts,
but I've picked out a few

These 2 Rather tall vintage poodles

And a pair of super camp flamingos to add a touch of colour to any garden.

Recent vintage finds

Last weekend was such a beautiful one, I could not resist talking a picture of this view
on the way to the charity shop.

We have been after a lamp base for ages and never seem to find the right one, or one at a reasonable cost and we spotted this one in a charity shop for £9.00!
Not having a suitable shade we found this at British Home Stores,
But think we will have one specially made by a company we found on the Internet.

I do love a rummage through the vinyl section and the kind shop lady let us pick an
 extra record for free! So Dawn chose Madonna's Immaculate Collection!

The trays were another find not like we need anymore.

A super little dish, I remember my Mum having this in pink on her bedroom window sill.

This was an ebay find, I love the shape of the handles.

We found these at the carboot, they were made by an elderly lady and were £2.50 each
which I though was a great price as the sort of thing has become quite vogue.

I never say no to a sherry, especially a set of 60s glasses.

I'd seen this book in the charity for ages,
and decide to buy it as it only cost coppers and has so much general knowledge it's untrue.

This should help me not to kill my house plants again!

We really love Vernon ward prints and saw this pair at the Antiques Centre!
I always think they look super hung in a bathroom!

A Red Vase

I love this type of glassware, but do find it quite hard to get this style as I don't know who made them!
This I sourced on ebay for a small fortune,
but several year's ago I did find a pair of turquoise one's for £15
