So this week has been a week of real bargains for me. I managed to bag a whole 1930's bedroom suite (Double bed, bedside cabinet and wardrobe) for 30 quid from ebay. At the moment I have all pine in my bedroom...it is all lovely stuff including a solid handmade wardrobe that I got for free from the tip here and a huge king size four poster bed that I paid an absolute fortune for about ten years ago.
However the bed is far too big for my new house and I have been on the look out for a vintage bed since I moved here 18 mths ago. I love 1930's and 40's decor and decided I wanted my bedroom just like the old days...I already have my candlewick bedspread waiting.
Then I spotted some corner kitchen bench seating on ebay. We have a little alcove in our living room that is begging for a corner dining area. I offered the owners a buy it now for £40 and they accepted. Woo hoo! I'll post a blog about my goodies when I go pick them up.
Anyway back to this weeks Magpie Monday over at Me and My Shadow's I took my usual weekly walk to my local charity shop and having the usual good rummage that I have I spotted this gorgeous cake stand right at the back.
It was love at first sight. It is 1950's / 60's Midwinter stylecraft and I adore Midwinter stuff. I grabbed it and ran to the till...It was a fiver and I think it matches lovely with my Lord Nelson tea cups I picked up at the charity shop a few months back, don't you think? I'm on the look out for a matching tea pot now to compliment the set.
I also got a lovely heavy glass fruit/trifle bowl. I have no idea who it is made by by I just love the style of it. A bargain at £2.
