Thoughts Of Spring





After the wintery weather of the last few weekends it has felt great this weekend getting out and about again in a bit of sunshine. I have managed to squeeze in a bit of flea market and indoor boot sale shopping both days. Our Easter Vintage Fair is fast approaching and I need to start gathering some pretties together for my stall. I seem to have been drawn to things that remind me of Spring, flowers and birds and pastel colours.
I couldn't resist the little lamp with a patchwork of vintage fabric on the shade. I also love the pretty traveling coat hanger case complete with hangers.The rose table mats were destined for my stall but seem to have found a little spot in my kitchen already.

So glad I stopped by - I love your gorgeous lamp, great find. Also loved reading through your New York post - I've got several Magnolia Bakery books so I'm very jealous you've been and I haven't!!

Annie - you're right about the price of selvedge - I had a subscription bought for my birthday because I get so much out of it. Its only once every two months and there is far less "rubbish" in it than most!

Hi Annie
Thank you for your lovely comment, hope you are having a nice weekend.I am finding the plastic trimmed ones are getting allot more expensive just lately to buy. But like you I prefer them.
Kind regards,Bridie
