oh it seems like there is so much to do and i am one of those people who like things done 'yesterday'! but still, i keep reminding myself that this is our 'forever' home and we have plenty of time.
*i have found a few nice vintage bits and pieces on my travels this past two weeks*
i picked up this old blanket in lymington along with this brass trivet advertising tea... 'the cup of peace & plenty that cheers'~does'nt that sound so jolly!
the enamel kitchen tidy is Swedish and i found it in a 'collectable junk' shop in Rye...turned out it is owned and run by one of the presenters on the 'Antiques Roadshow'!
this table is about 70 years old and is a perfect fit between our sofa and an armchair!
and finally my new mug~as soon as i saw this it reminded me of the work of william morris and i have always love the arts and crafts movement, so i just had to have it.
The trivet, blanket and table came to the grand sum of £4! thats the kind of shopping i love!
