Chasing my tail!

Well of course there has been time for some field sale rummaging! I'm never too busy to make time for that! A good haul of Dean classics - many with the original tatty dust jackets I love. Some lovely tins and boxes, and just a few of the linens I've gathered this week. Some of these are already being used!Two lovely pieces of fabric which I shall use for boy projects. We do quite a lot of vintage for boys around here. I don't want a mutiny over the florals!
Another lucite brooch for my collection - this one was 70p which I thought was ok but still not as good as 10p...
A very lovely old pram - I bought this with a friend in mind and so it is already on it's way to a new home where it will be made to look just incredible I am sure - I shall let my friend post about it when she has worked her magic one day!
You remember the garden set we only just got around to renovating having bought it at auction a couple of years ago?
Well somehow another beautiful old bench has found it's way up the garden and this one needs quite a bit more work! But meanwhile I think it looks just gorgeously elegant the way it is!
And I thought I'd share with you a few irresistable pictures of the home of the Bobobuns!
What a treasure trove! I had a lovely time looking around...
and that chocolate cake was scrummy too!! Have a lovely weekend everyone! t.x

Wow amazing...Are we going to the same sales?? If we are you're getting there before us! Love the bench just the way it is (but we would, wouldn't we).. Beautiful fabrics too... We seem to be going through a barren patch with fabrics...so now are ultra jealous of your finds!

I love that little boy type material - what will you make? Where is this amazing sale nothing like that where I live!

Mrs. Cozy Home said...

OH! That guard material is to die for ... it kills me to know there are amazing inexpensive sales where people are selling these treasures and I am separated form them by a very big pond :)

Hi T!
(No pressure then! I have to perform magic do I? ;-))
Thanks again x

Love the photos - the cottage tin looks delicious and another lucite for under £10!...(well under £1 - but I'm thinking of Somerset prices and what we'd be expected to pay round here...)

The new bench is gorgeous - I could just sit there with a cuppa and cake...

And Bobobun's home looks fabulous- you too must have just 'clicked' - isn't it lovely when that happens and someone 'gets' you?!

Have a great weekend,
Niki xx

See what happens when I work saturdays...I miss unmissable posts like this. Now barely 10 mins after my last comment I am able to see all the pictorial technicolour glory...Hurrah!
The home of the Bobobuns is indeed irresistible at it's very best! So covet-ing a patchwork throw-ed sofa!!!

What a fabulous bench I don't think it needs any attention at all except to be sat on and patted, draped with a blanket and have a lovely china teacup and saucer rested on it from time to time.
