Sunggled up on his 'lap blanket' with Mom. I always feel so guilty going away and leaving Sid at home - even though she (yes, SHE! I will tell the story one day) is spoilt rotten by my very kind neighbours who look after her and pop in to give her a good fuss three or four times a day.
Anyway, back to the matter in hand - holiday finds
First day shopping, and I left my faithfull shopping basket in the caravan - So I had to find something to carry the goodies in as I hate carrier bags.
A lovely hand made shopper, with plenty of room for the goodies!
Close up of my favourite side.
the other side
and the inside, showing the shoulder straps. Someone made a great job of making this and then donated it to a charity shop in Selsey. A bank breaking £1, what a bargain!
Two pretty key tassels for 50p the pair.
A tiny box - but there's a blue dragon on it
oops! sorry, out of focus. It was only 95p though.
Now what's a holiday without shells? Fell in love with this giant,
Love the striations in it.
and then there was this one... and strangely
this one that someone has painted gold. Good job I like gold then!
Who could resist at a £1 each? Our rear entry hall and cloakroom have a boating, coastal theme so guess where they're going?
Then I found this little beauty...don't be too shocked it's new!
I love the crab pot! Guess where this is going too...
I thought a great price £4.99
Okay, this ISN'T a real Staffordshire Cat - (though I do have the real dogs that were Gt. Grandma's) I also have two lonely little (fake) kittens that needed a Mom :o) I must have had the little ones for 7 or 8 years from a local car boot sale, I'm sure they were only a couple of pounds.
They all look so much happier now, and I was more than happy to part with £3.90 to make a great trio.
I found this Portmerion 'Botanical' pot. Now I have a quandry as I know two wonderful folk who collect this stuff.... Anyway, a steel at £2. I'll figure out who gets it soon.
By now, you know I'm a sucker for a lovely perfume bottle..
Nice eh? And it was £4.95.
A pair of topiary trees for £1.50? Just need some fresh moss I think.
And finally....I am facinated by musical instruments and
surprisingly have a small collection of them!
Here's an addition I've been after for months - not the best quality I know, but it's the only one I could play!
(Note to self, make sure the background to your photo's are clear.....)
Oh blimey, last minute addition I nearly forgot, the jewel in the crown..
An OLD, beautiful Coalport china shell
Knock down price of £2.
Hope you've enjoyed a stroll through my finds as much as I've enjoyed showing you.
A big hello to another new follower :o) You all make my day, and I love to read your comments too.
Next time I think I'd better reveal some more of the 'cats' collection, and probably my weirdest collection (who'd guess I'd do weird?) oh, and maybe a peak at the seaside theme too....
Until then, stay safe and well, and thank you for your time.
My very best wishes..
