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.

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.

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!

First of all was these two super 1960s Japanese pose dolls, they are in super condition too!
I saw them standing on the top shelf waiting for me, and I just literally ran over and snatched them!
Next was these lovely glasses only £2.50 and I could not pass them up, not like I need anymore!
But i thought the design was excellent, never seen the print before.
A rather handsome piece of glassware of a solider/nutcracker.
Made in Germany.
A Finger Vase!
A C.Eward's tea tray with Bakelite ball feet.
A 1970s Calendar with some super images of some well known mass market artists.
Which I may do a seperate post about.
This rather charming print for £2.00, it's a little earlier then I usually go for, but could not pass it up so it came home with us!
And last but not least my rummaging through the the vinyl found some wonderful records, not bad for £1 each!
