New Year Clear Out

For a very long time the spare bedroom has been a junk room full of 'stuff'. Last weekend I decided enough was enough and spent a couple of days having a good sort out. I got rid of bags of rubbish as well as stuff for the charity shop.

By the time I had finished it still looked like a store room but at least you could get to the bed !

I sorted all my remaining bits and pieces out and put them in the old kitchen cupboard which for now is residing in the bedroom and everything else was hidden away in old hat boxes, suitcases and baskets.

This morning I managed to cram in visits to a small car boot sale and two fairs.

I came away with this cute tea pot and tea cosy and yet another Horlicks mixer,

a very sweet trug, some vintage ribbon , a little deco lady pepper pot and yet another tin!

The knives and the belt buckle were bargains from the boot sale. The buckle was black but it has come up a treat with a bit of a polish.
Finally it feels like Spring isn't far away and I can't wait to get back in to the swing of weekend boot sales and flea markets.

Ooh,I think I need to visit your charity shop now! ;0)
Somehow the spare room always ends up as the 'junk room' doesn't it?
I seem to move things from one place to another,rather than have a good sort out like you.
Love all your finds! :0)

Oh I love your boot sale finds!! I am lucky that I don't have to use my guest room as a junk room! We have two big storage rooms up stairs. One of the rooms will someday be turned into a bonus room.
