New Pictures...

Just a few snaps of some recently acquired charity shop gold....

Please may i introduce you to Betty (on the left) and Balthazar (on the right), you can see one of the pretty handkerchief's i have taken to pinning to the wall, and the strange but appealing skiing lady)A collection of five white china horses for £2! they are not shown in their best here on the tatty, soon to be painted and re-vamped, shelves. only one of them has a broken leg but their previous owner had repaired so its all good.Some new brass owls to sit upon the 'knick-knack' shelf, i didn't intend for it be mainly full of feathered things but its going that way.

Anyway, time to go and make in the shop

A Favorite Part of The House...

It seems that i stop by here just about often enough to clear the worst of the cobwebs away doesn't it?
i just wanted to stop by and show you one of my favorite spots in our house at the moment.Its on the wall directly opposite to where the sewing table is. the cabinet is one of my prized possessions a) because it is lovely and b) because i carried it all the way to the house from town (about a 25minute walk) all on my tod....i honestly thought i was never going to be able to raise my arms above my head ever again, they hurt so much)
I'm not sure what it is about this set up but i just really like it, i plan for the whole wall to be almost covered in lovely framed pictures of various birds, there are a few up all ready.

The little set of shelves was a bargain from a charity shop, i think it was the princely some of 4 pounds! i intend to display all of my very important nick nacks which seem to magically appear in my shopping bags whenever i go into charity shops.
anyway, I'll post some more pictures when i finally get the space finished, there's not much left to do just a few more licks of paint here and there.
anyway, have a wonderful Sunday evening!!
