Some recent thrifted buys:-
It was hard to get a good photo of this picture. It's a bit battered around the edges but for £1.50 I'm sure I can find somewhere to put it.
This tin was brand new in the charity shop and contained a mug and coaster. I wasn't really interested in them, just in how Cath Kidston this looked and how well it would blend in in my kitchen
£1.50 from the British Heart Foundation. I can wear it for a whole hour before it starts to turn my finger green
This picture was so wonderfully kitsch it just had to come home with me. Also, it reminds me of Liverpool's Georgian Quarter
Vintage playing cards! 75p each
Had a lovely dinner at my mum and dad's last night. As is my custom when I go home, I had a bit of a rummage around and found a few things that were of interest.
How great are these egg cups. I think these are from the 1970's. I remember them from when I was very small. I'd forgotten that they were still around. Fortunately, my Mum doesn't share my love of all things kitsch and was more than happy for me to take them home with me.
Also, a not vintage but still very pretty biscuit tin. This has done the rounds in my family from my sister to me to my mum and now, since I spotted it again last night, back to me. This is gonna suit my kitchen perfectly!
Off to share with Sophie Isobel
Enjoy the rest of this most welcome long weekend xxx
