I really enjoyed 'carbooting' this weekend, well I always do, but it was even more rewarding after a stressy end to the week at work! It was nice to bump into lot's of 'vintage' friends as well. I spotted this pretty flannelette pillowcase being used as wrapping around something being unpacked and asked if it was for sale, the stall holder looked quite bemused by the fact that I wanted to buy it and the old tablecloth she had wrapped around something else, we all look at things differently don't we.
A vintage tea caddy.
I love this biscuit barrel and am hunting round for a space to display it. My house is quite full as every 'Vintage' enthusiast will appreciate.
My favourite find was this Vernon Ward firescreen. Its got a bit of damage in the corner not quite sure what somebody has tried to do but it involves wax crayon.
I love the faded muted colours.
I've got a metal trunk standing in the front of the fireplace at the moment so no room there. I thought it would be a good cover up for the dvd, skybox , etc. but youngest teenager looked aghast at the mere suggestion and it was impossible to change the channel! Enjoy the week and the sun that is expected.
