but oh ! What a beauty !
Spotted at the back by the van of one of my regular sellers, I couldn’t believe this hadn’t already been snapped up.
I love it, its shape, the way its legs kick out at the front like a beautiful girl showing off her feet, its colour, the smooth, smooth wood.
I won’t be selling it, I won’t be painting it. It’s perfect just the way it is.
and the cost ? Just £3
I can’t get enough wicker baskets. I have them in all shapes and sizes, perfect for holding stock and displaying at vintage fairs. I bagged this one complete with linen liner (in the wash) for just £2. Its a great size, would make a wonderful hall basket or storage for linens. We’ll see.
These won’t be going anywhere either. Bit of a trend this week, most of the treasure I found at the bootsale is destined to stay in my home. These are the most beautiful, heavy turquoise glass candlesticks. I love them, popped them on the newly built bookcase, displaying my books etc is still a work in progress but I have made a start.
After the success of my recent jewellery finds I’ve been keeping an eye out for more. Not much about yesterday but found these pretty ear rings. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if they were real diamonds ! Doubt it very much, they belonged to the sellers grandma and have the old fashioned screw against the back of the ear fastening.
Last week I regretted not buying a set of teacups, this week I wish I had picked up all of these. The seller had about twelve of them. On reflection I know I could have sold them on. The most gorgeous Scented East of India ceramic hearts ! Argh, so cross with myself.
Finally for this week, couldn’t resist this jug for just 20p ! It depicts the characters from the famous Widdicombe Fair tune (where the words Old uncle Tom Cobleigh and all, come from ) Just look at the poor horse.
That’s it for today. Boys on Easter holidays, sun is shining.
