My thriftaholic habit continues unabated. Locally there isn't usually much good thrift but recently I have been quite lucky, maybe it's the post-christmas clearouts that everyone's having. Everyone except me, that is - I seem to be the one who's acquiring it all!!!
I'd seen the pretty tea-set in the charity shop window several weeks ago and assumed it would be more than I would want to pay, so I didn't even ask. Last week I went and it was still in there so I asked - 10p a piece! Well, you know the rest - it will join my mismatched 'best' china.
The heart-shaped flower wreath (above) was a wired headdress, it was round but I bent it into a heart shape, I think it looks much better this way.
The ballerinas are on a glass-topped tray. I had a couple of pictures similar to this in my bedroom as a child, I wish I knew what happened to them. These are much more colourful than mine were.
The handbag isn't vintage but has a vintage look - I love the colour scheme. And glass candlesticks are always handy in case of power cuts!
And how about these to cheer a dull winter's day. Red with white polka dots, handpainted beads, a necklace and bracelet to match. Hiding at the bottom of the glass cabinet - until spotted by me.
My tiny craft room has been undergoing it's periodic tidy-up, necessary if you want to have some space to work in.
More on that another time. Thank you to everyone who has puchased a Lillipeg doll from my webshop, I hope to have some more items in there very soon.
