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!
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…
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….and Thank you Blue Yonder girl for making me remember them!
