Goodies from Lichfield

You may, or may not, have read my blog post the other day about a little outing we took to Lichfield. While we were there I managed to pick up a few pretties! 

We spent a while in a second hand book shop, and to be honest with you, if I had not restrained myself, I could have bought arms full of beautiful tomes! However, I picked carefully, allowing myself to get one; 'The Boy's Own Book of Ships' I just love all the illustrations, with their limited colour palette, which was probably done to save money on printing costs, but looks great. I think the images would look great on a terrific framed, though I wouldn't have the heart to actually take any out of the book; maybe I'll scan some of them in.

In another book shop I also found the England By Rail 2013 calendar, which I had had an eye on before, but it was too pricey. However, now we are well into 2013, it was £1 :) 12 beautiful reproductions of vintage England By Rail posters. I have put up a few pictures of my favourites.

Lastly I picked up a vintage silk scarf from a charity shop. It is a gorgeous teal colour, and will be adorning my neck or head on many occasions I'm sure.
