First things first - Welcome to my new follower :o)
Vicky has asked me to pass on her sincere thanks for all your lovely comments on her garden and jewellery, she has been knocked out by them :o)
Up date on the home Made Vanilla Extract I started on the 26th July. This is what it looks like now, two weeks on.
It's darkening up nicely and smells divine!
I have found a few things from the charity shop for those of you who were worried I'd lost the plot ;o)
I found this 9" high egg and birds for 70p - thought it'd come in useful around Easter time.
Now, I think I must have suffered a blow to the head with this jug - £14 from an antique centre, but still cheap. It stands approx. 10" tall and I love the shape of it. Made by Burleigh, and the design is Arden. Not surprisingly, I do have other pieces in the same design.
This beaded cotton jug cover is modern, but I love them as they harp back to Victorian days - it was only £1
Works a treat keeping out dust and flies with the beads to weight it down.
Then of course I found this little wooden box containing the brown pottery do-dah - can you guess what it is?
Have you guessed yet?
A biscuit stamp - how great is that? It was only 75p :o)
Then there was this (1 of a pair) of Gothic wrought iron candle sconces - £1 each
They will be winging their way to Nottingham on my next visit!
I already had the large crystal ball, but it was on a very dull stand - so when I found this one for £3 I thought it was 'just the ticket' (The cobalt glass liner is also my own.)
Well that's the lot for now folks! I'd just like to thank my dear friend Jan who is George the Lad's
Mom for lending me her rather splendid Panasonic Lumix camera with which these photos were taken....
...Now I know just what I'd like for my birthday :o) !!!
Hope you all have a good week, bye for now and best wishes
