At first I thought it was a deer, but when I looked at the head properly, I realised that it is more like a young Ibex. Ah well, whatever it is, it is sooo cute!
Found another sweet little Digoin/Sarreguemines cafe au lait bowl as well. Front -
and back -
Vintage chocolate egg mold, well, half of it anyway. Perfect for altering and putting a little Easter scene inside, dontcha think? -
Isn't this pewter plate great? I love the armorial design -
What else did I get? Ah yes, wine tasting cups, I think they are awesome -
I love wood, it is such wonderfully tactile stuff, and if it is carved beautifully, even better. I found this great little piece at the same place -
I use these enamelled, errm, pots, in the garden, planted up with geraniums and fuchsias -isn't that the prettiest shade of blue?
Found a box full of old buttons as well and spent a couple of hours happily sorting them into the different colours. These are the mother of pearl buttons I dug out -
This cup is chipped. On the rim and on the foot. But it is such a sweet commemorative cup, First Holy Communion, that I just couldn't leave it behind. I think it is so precious despite the chips -
Oh, and last but not least, a little blast of colour, this stunning fuchsia pink, very wide lace -
There were a couple of other things, but the sunlight didn't last long enough, so they will have to wait for yet another day.
Until then, toodlepip xxx
