It's been such an age since I posted anything about stuff I've bought that I've almost forgotten that I ever did.
First of all I just want to say that I've bought NOTHING, NOT ONE LITTLE THING, IN A CHARITY SHOP ALL YEAR AND IT'S APRIL ALREADY. Just thought I'd mention that.
I've only been to a measely three jumble sales this year thanks to Little Miss J and P's sporting activities and social engagements on a Saturday morning. One morning, I missed out on FOUR whole jumble sales because I had to ferry the dear girl hither and tither.
I know you feel my pain, dear readers.
Anyway, enough of the scarey hysterics and let me show you what I have bought recently.
I love enamel and I don't even mind if it's a bit chipped and rusty. However, these lovely enamel bits and pieces were in very good nick.
A pale blue teapot for 50p:
A white coffee pot with blue trimming for 50p:
A yellow bowl (10p) with green trimming (my very favourite colour combo in enamel ware) which is snuggling next to a previous enamel buy:
A vibrant blue apron to add to my burgeoning collection (30p):
Mr J and P managed to find this old fashioned water bottle for 50p which is now being used as a door stop:
Oh and how topical, seeing as it's nearly Easter, a Russian wooden egg (30p):
We're off to the Lake District for Easter to stay at Grandpappy J and P's. Except he won't be there (boo hoo). He is swanning around western Australia by himself for 8 weeks. Lucky devil. Although, I must admit, I'm a little worried about him. He is 84 you know. And he managed to lose his passport somewhere between the airport at Perth and his hotel (eeeek!). Fortunately, he's sorted that out now and is now in Albany (somewhere south of Perth), hopefully, checking out the op shops for yours truly *joking*.
Have a happy Easter everyone. xx
