I've been getting way behind with everything lately and not keeping up with my blog my pictures and my finds so I thought I'd share with you some of my latest finds as those thrifting gods have been looking after me very nicely recently!
Had to include this picture - lovely tea set and Sanderson curtains with a fabulous wedding photo - not sure whether its hand tinted but I really liked the pinky contrasts!
Found the lovely suitcase at a charity shop (I can see this charity shop making a lot of money out of me as they are going to concentrate on vintage items!)
Very tempted to become a volunteer!
Also had to buy the red polka dot eiderdown with its little floral nosegays...
For the sugar glass lovers amongst you this is the best piece of sugar glass I've found so far - very large and heavy and definitely a keeper - for now!
And finally a little Lloyd Loom covered seat with original paint and fabric. It still has its label and the date stamp showing it was produced in 1955. The fabric is gorgeous and typical of the period. Love it!
I've been picking up Lloyd Loom pieces for years but try to find those with their original paint jobs. I did repaint one but they are easily ruined with globules of paint sitting in all the recesses of the weave so I learnt my lesson. I suppose they could be one of my collections! I can feel another post coming on!
