So let the blog catch up begin...
While I was on my break I received a little surprise parcel in the post from the gorgeous Madison, she had spotted something at the boot sale that she thought I would like. It came wrapped up in some lovely Cath Kidston paper (which unfortunately I lost the photo of with the tech problems) but inside was this gem:
Here. I have however had to rescue big Elvis from the jaws of my little man but Elvis was unharmed, little man however promptly had a tantrum (how dare i remove an object from his clutches). They now have pride of place out of reach of little hands. Thank you so much Madison I love them :o)
I also managed of course to get myself to the charity shops and here is a couple of my finds:
Carnival house numbers (lucky I live at a number 28 hey!) - £1 each.
I spied a little Brixham Pottery bird vase...
Now I do like a Blue Tit...
..but I also like the Great Tit, there is only one way to decide.....Buy a vase with both! This was £1.45 well spent.
I was having a rummage through a shelf of tat at the charity shop and found a little box
I opened it up...
...and found this lovely vintage faux pearl necklace
Now its been long overdue for this little feature:
Overheard in a Charity Shop:
While perusing the clothing rails nearest to the till I saw a lady bring a floral summer dress to the till:
Customer: "Do you know this dress has one strap held on my a safety pin?"
CS: "Oh that's easily fixed just have to put a couple of stitches on there "
Customer: "But you are asking £6 for it! I think that's a bit rich for a dress with a broken strap"
CS worker then looks at the dress label "Yes dear but this one is a Monsoon"
Customer: "Yes but it has a broken strap"
CS: "I know dear but it is a Monsoon dress"
Customer: "I think that's a bit cheeky asking that much for a damaged item"
CS: "I think its a bit cheeky you questioning a charity"
Customer left the dress and promptly left the shop, the cs worker then hung the dress complete with safety pin back on the dress rail...
Have a fabulous weekend all.
