Just so you can get to know me a little bit more:
I absolutely adore my garden and this was one of my finds at my children's school May Fair. It is a really well weathered terracotta planter - just how I like them to be!!! As a bonus it came with plants too.
Another one of my lucky finds - this time at Kempton Park Antiques Fair which is held twice a month and is only 10 minutes drive from where I live. I love the galvanised buckets and thought this hydrangea looks beautiful in it.
Now this beautiful lady has to be one of my most treasured possessions and was purchased by my husband as a surprise present for me - Thank you Matthew xxxx She is a late 19C Wasp Waisted Mannequin and comes complete on her original stand. I hope you all agree that she is absolutely adorable.
Isn't he just adorable!!! One of my ebay finds - how could I resist!!!
I have many tins dotted around the house but this one has to be my favourite. I just love the seaside scene on the lid and it is just perfect for my bathroom to store all of my children's shampoos.
And now for some of my favourite china:
This has to be my favourite pattern - Shelley Melody - as it reminds me so much of my Grandma who sadly passed away 7 years ago. She had a whole set of this given to her as a wedding present back in the 1940's and it all lives at my mums. I couldn't wait though until it gets passed down to me so I have collected some pieces of my own including this trio.
I am a big fan of chintz and this Royal Albert set is so unusual. I found it at Kempton Park along with another set so couldn't resist - then again who could!!!
I hope this gives a little glimpse into the things that I love and I will be posting much much more over the coming weeks.
