Just a quick blog before I go away to my mums for a few days with my girls, my husband has to work unfortunately. But it will be lovely to spend some time with my dear old mum who is becoming quite frail, but mentally she is a sharp as a tack and very funny with it.These are all recent car boot finds, my husband knew the stall holder who was selling this case , an elderly gentleman, who told us it was his old air force case and had been around the world with him. That made it all the more special. I think that's part of what makes vintage so special knowing that it has 'lived' another 'life'.
I could not resist this striking blue set...
... or doll complete with dimples
Tins, how I love tins! These were full of nails but the chap selling them was happy to empty them out and just sell me the tins.
This is my favourite, I love a bit of rust!

I haven't had time yet to go through this sewing basket properly, but there looks to be lots of nice of bits and pieces inside.
Enjoy the week whatever you are up to .xx
