I thought I would just pop into blogland and say hello and wish you all a Happy New Year . It has been a few weeks again since I was last here and I have lots to catch up with. I have decided for now to maybe write once a week and see how it goes and catch up with everyone once a week to. Gorgeous Vic's from Vixen Vintage blog said something to me about when you collect vintage your house will never be finished and she is so very right so I feel that I do still have something to share with you and maybe to talk about. My Kitchen is very nearly finished so will reveal all in my next post but thought I would share for now my vintage finds so far this year :-)
I found this little beauty after Christmas they were the last vintage buy of 2013 for me, 2 bambi's for the price of 1 i only paid £3 for them such a bargain :-)
This fabulous 60's bread bin was a real bargain so far this year 50p i know completely mad isn't it :-) It is now home to the crisps.
These 50's pink plastic desert bowls were an ebay buy and i did pay a fair bit for them but i loved them and they were great to serve the trifle in at Christmas.
As you know i collect Taunton Vale items this Cheese dish was another ebay buy and i did pay a whopping £16 plus postage which is a lot for me to pay for something but its a product that i have never seen or been able to find so with some christmas money it came to live with me.
And talking of Taunton Vale what do you think of this fabulous book stand ;-) Again an item that i had never seen before so a bid on ebay secured it at £15 i couldn't not have it could i ;-)
And my vintage cook books sit very nicely in it.
I fell in love with this little chap in a charity shop he is from the 50's an egg timer and he still works isn't he cute :-)
Homepride Fred flower shaker 50p has seen better days and he was filthy when i found him but after a good clean he is happy to have now found his forever home :-)
My lovely friend Karen bought me this little chap to add to my collection at my last fair in December.
And i just happened to buy these little poodle salt and pepper pots from the fair in December to ;-)
I have the bug back now and i can't wait to go on some more treasure hunts soon. I am doing my first fair next month at St Andrews Church House, Cheddar on Saturday 15th February at The Roxy Vintage and Handmade fair it will be their first one to be held there. I will be taking these two lovely items with me...
A gorgeous 1950's yellow and cream picnic set ( dont know how i can part with it) and push along Donkey will be looking for his forever home :-)
