Sunday Car Boot Sale Finds




Today has been lovely, up early before the heat of the sun and a leisurely wander around a a car boot sale followed by the usual coffee and cake . I have spent the rest of the day enjoying the beautiful weather in the garden and doing a little bit of sewing making lavender bags for the fair. I was pleased with my finds at the boot sale this morning, they included a Victory jigsaw puzzle, a number of books, a child's tea set as well as a couple of cake stands and an art nouveau style tin and another painted glass jug to add to my collection.I also found a sweet little wicker shopping basket and an old Smith's kitchen timer which may well find a home in my kitchen along with my other red bits and pieces.

I thought that photo looked familiar, I have my copy of "My Animal Picture Book" on the shelf next to me, it was a Christmas present in 1950.
Lovely inspiring blog.
