The last few weeks I have found very little in any of the local charity shops. However this week I found a couple of things that have made up for it. This old Tala bread bin isn't in great condition but is fine for display. I already have a similar one which I use every day so I will probably sell this one rather than add to my clutter. This morning I popped in to our local table top sale at a nearby nursing home and found the blue and white jug and also the pretty violas. The frilly ones are a variety called 'Can-Can'.
The little glasses are another charity shop find, they are very small and I guess are some sort of liquer glass but I loved the colours.
More roses, this time yellow ones on a beautiful 1950s linen table cloth in unused condition, also from a charity shop.
I couldn't resist the bunch of dahlias this morning from a lady selling garden produce at the sale. They are so cheerful and add a real splash of colour.
Later on this morning I headed to town to the monthly Bicycle Basket Bazaar. I had my camera with me and then completely forgot to take any photos ! It was lovely to finally catch up with Annie, The Felt Fairy and her daughter Amy who is having a stall at our vintage fair in a few weeks as well as some of the other sellers. I bought the pretty needlepoint bag from Carol earlier in the week, she is also having a stall at the fair with her daughter Chelsea. Maybe one day my daughter will be inclined to join me !
I am off now for some very late lunch. I treated myself to some lovely cheese and fresh bread from a new deli and cheese shop recently opened in the town. I also decided to try some smoked garlic. I don't buy garlic that often so any suggestions as to how I might used smoked garlic gratefully received.
