One of the downsides (if there can be any) of being a thrifty girl, is finding a place for all those things you just couldn't resist buying.
I have a small shelf in my kitchen which has become a place to put those smaller items that just don't have an obvious place to go. There are a number of little dollies here, some tins, china rose ring, matchbox, just bits and bobs that sit happily together.
The little scottie dog is the first one I ever made, way back in the 80s. I used to collect fabric samples from Laura Ashley and use them to make tiny lavender sachets. I think the fabrics they produced then were far prettier than now, and there was such a wide choice, this one was Polyanthus, I think.
Two very differerent dollies, but I love both their sweet faces.
Underneath the shelf are pegs with more paraphernalia. An old dog biscuit advert, a fairy peg doll, necklaces, a brush, tiny plastic bear, no rhyme or reason, no particular style, just somewhere for them to go.
On the radiator, fake lavender flowers in painted tin pots and nestling inside, two doll's house dollies, the newcomers. I found these at the car boot recently, or rather my friend Jayne found them, but as she had some already was gracious enough to let me buy them for myself. Not sure if I'd be so gracious!
No great value to anything but a place for every little thing. Not much room left for any more though, might be time for another shelf soon!
Hope you're all enjoying the weekend - going by in the blink of an eye as usual! Amongst other things, I've been busy searching for stock and have found a few nice things lately. I'll try to post about them next week.
