I was catching up on my favourite blogger at the moment (Blue Yonder) she has been sorting out her life by having a spring/summer clean and then I got to thinking that there are plenty of things that are placed in my house, that I take for granted….but I haven’t actually looked at them in a long time. its not until you do a bit of spring cleaning, that you think…ahhh yes I remember buying that, or yes, I remember when I got this. So I have decided to rather than show you my latest purchases, (and believe me there have been many!) but to show you my items that I have acquired over a lifetime, that I take for granted….so here goes…
I’d totally forgotten you!… Red Teddy placed on the top shelf in our dining room…We bought him at a Boot sale back in 1995 for £20.00, he is indeed straw filled and I have had him valued at £300.00 but would never part with him – he is sooooo cute!
Hello Dolly!…Can you see this little dolly in the Raisins jar, she has a lovely creamy lace dress and little white socks, and is absolutely perfect in condition, I forget where I bought her from, but again she is something that I totally forgot that I had!
Buttons…I love buttons, you will often find me making jewellery out of them, or collages, you see I am fond of all things circular…these lovely mother of pearl buttons, I found in the dining room on this lovely blue crystal cake plate.
I do apologise for this pic! Max our dog does like to get in on the act! and thought he would do this silly pose in a cardboard box in the garage, so that I would take a picture of him…..and of course I couldn’t resist…Max the scruffiest West Highland Terrier you ever did see, bought for £400.00 but worth every penny!..They are so much more expensive these days aren’t they, but we still wouldn’t be wit our furry friends would we?
These beautiful flowers are on my chest of drawers, they are roses, my favourites, they are made of silk with water droplets and it wasn’t until I started taking pictures in my bedroom, did I remember how beautiful they were…The colours of the flowers matches the vase beautifully…we bought them in a Second hand shop in whitstable in 2001… so many moons ago now!
I do hope you like my little collection of things that I had forgotten about….No doubt I will be bringing you more as my blog continues…
