I must have read this in about 1963 -does anyone else remember it? I loved the illustrations then and once I'd seen one of the pictures the others came flooding back. Isn't it funny what triggers memory? A simple image buried for years was enough to take me back to my regular seat in the armchair curled up with a book and an apple - simple days!
Loving these vintage curtains - 3 of them. Irises and roses on a crimson background... not barkcloth this time but probably 50s.
I'm a sucker for black, white and red 50s ceramics too so this tureen came home with me ...
as did the Coronation and jubilee mugs - both pre war.
Also some bits of haberdashery including a bunch of crochet hooks which will be great for my crochet class tonight...
and some vintage advertising cards.I'll have to do a separate post about them! They appear to have been used routinely to advertise all manner of things and I was amazed to find these Ross fish finger cards!Lately I've picked up all sorts of these advertising cards - from fish fingers to batteries to stockings!
The little habd painted jug had to come home
Hope the thrifting gods have been good to you too!
