A crystal ball and large 'Carnival glass' perfume bottle  made for the toy Romany Caravan - with a drawing pin for scale.
I used vintage glass beads and buttons with E6000 glue.
Just don't ask for your fortune to be told 😁

A photo before this #wip goes behind glass, in a simple white frame.
So many vintage and fragile fabrics patched and layered in this piece - the little blossoms are simple white Suffolk Puffs.

I've been going through old photos this week and then had a moment of inspiration this morning - a new way to display some of the smaller photos I have of my two son's. 
This vintage recipe card tin - with the recipe on how to preserve children on the inside of the lid - is just perfect. 
Win, win - new use for the tin - and those photos usually hidden awsy, out on show.

And the other car boot sale buys , really not sure why I bought the 'Bude' owl calendar? But I do have fond memories of Bude and being on holiday - and the perpetual calendar pieces are complete πŸ’™

Two very different pieces of glass from the car boot this morning.
On the left a tall elegant vase, could be French, 1930's ? The pattern and colour reminiscent of 1930's satin lingerie. If anyone knows more I would love to hear?

On the right Kutnows Powder glass bottle - perfect for little posies, or putting near a window to catch the light. Date 1910 approx.
Both have survived undamaged to the present day - if I've said it once, I'll say it again - just amazing what you can find at boot sales.

A fitting occupant for the vintage toy Romany Caravan ? 
This is my Nan, Ivy, who loved to dress up - and the photo was taken before she got married, circa 1930's.

Just found even more filters - this one is called 'Toaster' - seems apt in this weather

I really like how these metal garden flowers and dragonfly have rusted over the past few months.

My view this morning -  and cup of tea and a bacon roll in bed. 
I hope you have a lovely day whereever you are, whatever you are doing. πŸ’–

Just what you need in a heatwave - a hot chorizo sausage set on fire inches away

#thewishpost by @misterfinchtextiles - another magical book full of his beautiful creatures. I am in awe. 😁
#misterfinch has self published the book and you can buy through his website. (I have just noticed it's signed too! 😁) Way too hot to use my sunny workroom today, so the paperplay will have to wait. French letters and other ephemera from @pilgrimandpie and @dottyspreloved πŸ’– vintage ceramic shoes from #treasurehunting trips.

Remember to drink lots of liquids in this hot weather. #summertime #globalwarming #ukweather #keephydrated  @shabbystitches Lynne, when I saw the teapot walk you went on yesterday I remembered I had a giant cup and saucer as a birthday gift last year 😁
