Splashing out!

Some of my purchases from my holiday. 3 FQ for £3, a pink storage jar from Tesco's, 4 old cotton reels from a fab antiques shop in Aberfeldy for £1, a fab book from the same shop for a £1. 3 beautiful cards. A gorgeous spinning top in the shape of a chicken. The black thing is a old wooden stamp in the shape of a chicken, it's great, from the same antique shop. A beautiful piece of Poole pottery bought for £3 from the same antiques shop in Aberfeldy.
A new letter rack for my studio/office when it's complete!!!

A super cute cup & saucer bought for little dear from the same antiques shop for £6, a little expensive but worth it!

Isn't this bird gorgeous, I bought this from a local shop before I went on holiday, it goes really well with my colour scheme in my front room!

I received some book tokens for my birthday so I ordered 2 new books this one and another, they are both great but in very different ways.

I bought this stash from a local charity shop for £4.50, the main set has Sweet Peas on them they are gorgeous. I have big plans for them!!

The rain has finally arrived here today (thank goodness) I know some will be cringing at that thought but it is a pleasant change and it means I don't have to water tonight!
Have a great weekend.

What fabulous finds, I love the cotton reels, pink jar,(why oh why does it have to come from falming Tesco lol) I'm apart of Hugh's chicken out campaign and won't go in there at all. I'll have to go in under cover lol
We have that same Enid Blyton book, I was drawn to the cover and just had to get it, 50p charity shop. Don't you just them, full of wonderful things if you're there at the right time and place.
I'm off now to have a look for that other sewing book, now you've reccommended it sweetie.
Many hugs.
Have a lovely weekend.

What a great haul. I got a lovely little tea set a while ago from the booty with pink rose buds on it. Great for vintage tea parties. x

I don't know where to start with this lovely haul. I LOVE Naughty Amelia Jane, top Twiggy role model in the 1970s! beautiful cups and saucers, lovely cotton reels, oh it's all fab, well done and the fabric is lush

I love the Amelia Jane book, I've just started buying Enid Blyton books, I had them all as a child but they unfortunately got wet in storage so had to be thrown!

Hi Vanessa, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! I love the letter rack, Aberfeldy has improved over the years, I went to the academey there (in the 80's!) when the shopping highlight was a plate of chips from the Birks cafe (RIP)
