The thrifting angel has paid us a visit!!!

Well, after a terrible few days in which we have been plagued with sickness and tummy bugs, we decided to venture to the local carboot for a spot of bargain hunting. We were not disappointed!

The thrifting angel has definitely blessed us today!!
Here are some of our finds!

Brand new storage tins (very Cathesque!), perfect for the caravan. But also perfect for my kitchen. Descisions, decisions.

Various vintage childrens books, just love looking at the illustrations, Fin has also shown a keen interest in these so will be spending many happy hours reading them to him.

Linda Barker book, great for shabby inspiration.

4 Snowflake Pyrex large plates. You can never have enough!

Vintage pyrex dish, just because!

Very old cook book. For a bit of old school kitchen delights.

A J & G Meakin Glamour gravy boat. Needs a cycle in the dishwasher but delightful nevertheless.
And how much did these treasures set me back. Less than £11 for everything!!

A perfect thrifting day.

For you Mammar

1 gorgeous, fantastically shabby vintage quilt. For the outrageous price of £1.

Some people however, mentioning no names (you know who you are!!!), have no appreciation whatsoever for this gorgeous piece of history. So im going to give it to you mammar Ness as i know you have always wanted one. So now freshly laundered and plumped, its yours. Enjoy. x x x x

Today we are here

This postcard sums up today. So much dust so little time!
