It's been a busy week, on Monday I accompanied my Mum to Milton Keynes hospital for further tests on her heart. everything went according to plan, the staff were kind and helpful as always. So back to see the consultant in a couple of weeks. So it was back to work on Tuesday and back to the chaos at home. We've had part of my eldest daughters room sectioned off and installing a w.c and hand basin in the space. Who could believe what a mess this could cause! The girls have temporarily moved in with each other but Rubys clothes and belongings seem to have grown feet and spread throughout the house, every morning is filled with cries of 'Where are the hair straightners', or such is the like. I am by no means a tidy freak-who can be when you collect!? But will be bit happier when everybody and their belongings are back in their own room!

So I have not had much time for treasure hunting this week, I thought I would share some pictures of some of my treasured objects. These have been given to me over the years by my Mum so are very special to me. Needless to say I would never part with them. I think I know where I get my love of vintage from !

A vintage Terrys chocolate box.

This poppy designed Moorcraft vase, it has an amazing glaze to it.

This 1920's print entitled 'Idle moments'.

A sweet little trinket, sorry bit blurry- it reads 'Within you see what pleases me'
With mirror inside.

I enjoyed sharing those photos with you, now I must get back to sweeping the plaster dust! and hopefully make a few more bits and pieces for The Cotswold Vintage Fair next saturday 27th November in Toddington village hall set in the beautiful cotswolds countryside, it would be lovely to see you there Linda xx

  2. Hope your Mum is feeling better and your building work is soon over, I know only too well what plaster dust is like!! It gets everywhere, we are still finding dust months after our downstairs was finished. Looking forward to seeing you in Toddington next week, Andy is hoping to sample the Malteser cake once more!!
