Today I dragged the Wee Man round the the charity shops in our town and found nothing. Nowt! The Wee Man did get three Thomas books but how about me? No pretty china, no pretty fabrics, nothing. I did find a delightful crochet blanket in the first charity shop I went to but the Big Man decided to call at that precise moment and duly talked me out of buying it. His reasoning was that I should make one to make it more special. Argh! Emotional blackmail.
So here I am, stroking all my previous car boot finds to relive those moments when they came into my life. Oh car boot sales, how I love thee and thy bounty.
I'm going to stop now before I start pacing the floor. Off to distract myself from that knawing need. I'll leave you with a couple of photos of pretty things I found a couple of weeks ago from a charity shop.
A Royal Albert "Old Country Roses" bud vase. I did my usual google and was pleasantly surprised to find it is the world's most popular china pattern. Spawning it's own fakes and everything. Whether that makes it desirable and coveted or just a mass produced piece of china I'm undecided. I haven't been able to find a monetary value for it yet. But I got it for a measly 99p.

An Old Foley James Kent Ltd china planter. I have some muscari growing in it right now and it's found a temporary home on the living room side table. The Big Man keeps admiring it, so must be a winner(!)

Off to distract myself. Thinking of all the lovely charity shops I can wander into on holiday.
