I leapt out of bed this morning ready for today's car boot. Ready to leave I opened the curtains to this! Don't you just love the way snow clings to the narrowest of branches outlining and defining the shapes and structures around us?
If I listened to the weather forecast I would have known but I don't preferring not to let weather influence what I'm doing. Still, that sort of covering of snow would put off the most hardy of stall holders!
Yesterday I browsed a 1923 magazine and came across some fabulous adverts.Just look at this description of exhilaration ...
Are you buried by the weariness of work or the accumlating cares of the world? Despite work having been the source of much frustration for me I will not let it bury me. (For those who gave me a huge bloghug when I was completing THE FORM last month - I got the job at the lower grade so now have to get used to a signifcant pay reduction - good job I'm a seasoned thrifter! Again I do thank you for all your support - I was amazed). I digress - I seek my opportunities to brighten the days all the time.
Spotted last week in Anthropologie were these very retro looking glasses (above) hardly a snip at £10 - EACH!
Spotted (and purchased)in a charity shop this week the set below - the real thing, a complete set of 50s glasses for less than half the price of one from Anthropologie! I admit to a tad of exhilaration at my find. Exhilaration for children only - I don't think so!
What exhilarates you - do tell!
