Car Booting :)

Goodies from a sunday morning at a car boot sale: 
A brilliant 50's/60's stool that we will probably re-trim, great for £5! I was really pleased with this find, as we had been wanting a footstool for ages anyway.
A lovely Agfa vintage camera for a few quid.
3 old soda stream bottles for 50p 
Such good fun having a proper rummage through the rubbish to find some gems :)

Vintage Wooden egg cups! :)

I spotted these while having a rummage at an antiques shop. I zoned in on their little painted faces, and they were only 50p each, a bargain in my eye, especially as they are hand-painted. They are egg cups, but I think they are too pretty to be kept in a cupboard so I am using them to put my rings and necklaces in at night.

Smile At A Stranger

I always think that a smile from a stranger can brighten up you day. It's a shame people don't do it more often, dogs are much more forthcoming (though not sure I agree with their other greetings, probably best to leave that to the dogs!)

Happy Easter!

Please say hello to April's paper toy, Fred and Ginger! It is a few days late, even though I planned it out weeks ago! Other things just seemed to get in the way. I wanted to get a bit of a retro look for this one, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. One of my favourites I think!
