I didn't go to the charity shop this week as it was half term and we had our Granddaughter staying with us and I just didn't get the time. However I've been on ebay...Lots.
My first bargain is a Smelton Crinoline lady cake plate. It was only a pound and I know it is a bit worn in the middle of the plate but I think that adds to its character. I think it dates back to the 1930's but I might be wrong so if you can correct me I would appreciate it.
I can just imagine the amount of family tea's this plate has seen. As it is well used I guess it saw and heard many family conversations around the table.
It is pouring with rain here today so please excuse the rain drops.
My new bedroom curtains arrived. I bought these from ebay last week for a bargain £3 + £7 postage. A real bargain.
They are typical 1950's curtains and I'm pretty sure they are Barkcloth, in fact I'm positive the fabric is. I love the yellow rose design on them and how fresh they look. I will add some lining them hang them in my bedroom.
