I cleared the table both in the dining room and annex, wow I thought I'm on a roll! But no. As is one of my naughty habits I get distracted , and this time I got distracted big time!!!
First hubby was back and forth as he was asking about Apple sauce making and was I sure I wanted crumble and not Apple pie. After the third visit I gave him my "go away" look and he was not seen again in my sanctuary for the rest of the day !!!
Then memories of Kent....
Well we had a fantastic charity shop in a posh bit of town that always had great China etc. one day I saw two suitcases, they looked 1970,s era but looked like new and smelt fresh and new too and we're going cheap and as I often do I had a plan to store fabric in them ..one day! Anyway when they came here they had been placed in the back room of the annex . Yesterday I decided I would gets the new scented satchels out, the suitcases and put the fabric into the suitcases. Well I didn,t think there was anything to note in either, but boy there was and what a lovely hour I had going through them.
First I found Mrs Puddleduck tin.
Now I bought her at a boot fair over 5 years ago.
I have a matching China spoon too and
just thought the tin was empty
It still had the price on it 75p.
When I opened it , it was stuffed with
When I removed it I found these.
These plates are about 2 inches
Mickey and friends
But have great details
All the rest of these
Lots and lots of little miniatures,
I felt a little sad
It must of been a child's
Secret treasure box one day.
I hope they decided to
Sell it and some grown up
Didn,t do a clear out
Without them knowing.
Lots more WIP's
And vintage bits and bobs
I'll share another time (or two!!)
But I filled both suitcases
Again such a distraction...
Some fabrics from
Dresses belonging to
As a baby
That I just loved the fabric of and just
Had to keep..
I have placed lovely scented sachets inside
To keep everything fresh
And moth free.
And I even managed to
Lay out the craft table
So not a completely wasted few hours .
Do you ever buy something second hand
And wonder about it's previous life
Or is it just me?
Hope your weekend
Is everything you're hoping for
See you soon
