I only picked up a few things during the week, and they happened to be red and leather. Two lovely round boxes in embossed leather, one big, one small. I can't resist anything that can be used as storage in some way or another. If they don't find a useful home in my home, they will be for sale.
I don't know why i bought these, they are too high for me, and shiney red shoes, although fabulous are really not me. I mean, are these the right kind of footwear for letting out the chickens, pottering in the polytunnel or for doing the school run?
They are lined in the most lovely purple colour, and this colour combination always reminds me of an old friend of mine who, for her wedding wore a red satin Vivienne westwood knee length outfit and her husband wore this sort of purple shirt. It is a most unusual colour combination that always reminds me of her.
Does every house have a sweetie jar? We do, it has sort of come about because whenever Little Bee is deluged with sweetie offerings (Christmas, Easter, Birthdays, Tuesdays, Halloween, Thursdays, any day) I can divert them to the sweetie jar and dish them out in a vaguely moderate way. I broke the jar a while back and have been using just one of my regular Le Parfait jars. I found this today for €3, and i reckon having a sweetie jar that you can't see directly into is going to be a good thing.
Little Bee tells me that it is not nearly big enough.!
I arrived late at a Jumble sale this afternoon and there was basically only tat left. I didn't want to leave completely empty handed so I scoured until i found this grey satin hair pin and the net and bead brooch.
For 20c each, they'll jussh up a vintagey outfit sometime.
