With a nod to Emma over at Silver Pebble blog (link thing not working) I thought I would share a "splash of colour" . This arrived today - a great buy from Ebay. I'm normally too mean to buy from Ebay but I did fall for this barkcloth fabric and thought I could make something nice with it. I was thrilled when it came today to see that it was a full length lined door curtain in amazing condition! I clearly hadn't studied the description properly. I now need to move some curtains around to find a place for it!
Although things are a little quiet (well relatively) on the thrifting front this biscuit tin was a great find. It's in immaculate condition - does anyone remember it from first time round? There is no clue as to which company made it but it's fab with matt black paint and glossy coloured roses in the style of the old gardening books...I love it!
Last but not least its time for a giveaway! I meant to do one when I got 100 followers but it didn't happen, nor did it happen at 100 posts, nor at my blogoversary so here goes. Last week when doing the charity shop run (so much more fun than the school run I find)I spotted an old C******** bauble and bought it. The next shop had bags of baubles including one full of vintage ones! Bought that. I then asked in the next few shops even if they didn't have them out on display. By the time I got home I was 50 baubles up for less than £10! Having see the price on e-bay I was thrilled. (I'm easily thrilled!) Sheer cheek - or vintage chic?
Some of you have asked after my treasure finds where I put everything and Niobe is still threatening to move out if I don't stop filling the house so, to try to maintain some domestic harmony, I've opened a little blogshop where I'm offering a few of my finds so that my blogging friends get a chance to buy these lovely vintage items at reasonable prices rather than competing on e-bay!
This is where the giveaway comes in. The bauble link in the side bar will take you to the shop which I will add to over the next few weeks. Anyone leaving a comment on either blog will be entered in the giveaway to win a selection of VINTAGE BAUBLES! New followers welcome!
And in case you can't think of anything to say the picture above taken at Swinderby Antiques Fair in the summer should provoke a reaction! The giveaway will close on 30th November. (If enough of you ask me to remove the gummy pic I will!)
Have a great weekend,
