Bank Holiday Monday, and of course it is chucking it down, waahhh, so much for me going to another boot fair today. The biggest local-ish one, too, sniff, sniff.
Ah well, I have lots of work to do for the craft fair next weekend, labels to be made, products to be made, so I suppose an extra few hours will come in quite handy. Also, it means I can share some more boot fair finds with you, yesterday's haul.
Here we go, with the early morning one.
I fell in love with this little Paragon bowl, so beautifully decorated with roses, had to have that for our cottage in France. It was probably a sugar bowl in a previous life, but it will look beautiful on one of the dressing tables, maybe filled with some vintage diamante jewellery -
This tiny Limoges perfume atomiser will also look pretty in one of the bedrooms -
This little copper chappy can hold a little plant -
And this poor, neglected and very sad looking copper kettle will join the copper kitchen stuff, AFTER it has had a jolly good clean up -
I'll post a pic of it again, once I have had a chance to polish it up.
I usually find at least one piece of embroidery or linen to take home, and yesterday was no exception. I found this lovely tablecloth, with an unusual motif, very pretty whitework embroidery, with a large peacock in the centre!
I am always on the lookout for things to photograph my soaps with, it gets a bit tedious photographing them in a white box all the time, so I was pleased to find this little soapdish, which had been bought in Singapore, apparently -
This really pretty and quite large shell will also appear in some soap shots -
Only bought one iddy biddy broken string of beads, but they are very pretty, I think they are garnets, I compared them to some garnet beads I have, but of course I could be totally wrong and they are just glass. I don't care though, they are such a beautifully rich, deep colour -
That was almost it. Last but not least were three paperback books, just a bit of light reading for bedtime -
Total spend at the early morning boot fair - £4.80
I might try and update this post with the second Sunday boot fair later on today, for the moment, I have to leave blogging, get out of Lalaland and do laundry!
