Let me introduce the latest resident of the green W.I. cabinet, he is a cute little bisque figure I found when I was over at the Brackley Antiques Cellar yesterday and he fits in perfectly with the other residents of the cupboard.
On Saturday morning Mr C was up bright and early and headed off to a sale in aid of our local dog rehoming charity Jerry Green. He came back laden with goodies including this fabulous 1950s frilly pinnie with a christmasy design which is very Cath Kidston in style. It is now hanging in our stall at Brackley. The picture above is a detail of a lovely needlepoint clutch bag he found.
The little 1960s wooden dolls cot was a find at our local re-cycling shop, I took it over to our stall yesterday as it would make a lovely Christmas present for a little girl.
Back to Saturday and more of Mr C's finds including the lovely old faded Union Jack and beautiful 1920s chenille door curtain. When he took me back later I found the old Mabel Lucie Attwell print in it's original frame and the cute silk scarves with scottie dogs and poodles.
I love hyacinths at any time of year but somehow they seem even more special on cold dark days in December. I guess I need to start thinking about Christmas decorations now as reading so many of your lovely blogs this weekend I can see I am way behind on the festive front.
