I went out the other day to call to the bank, and whilst out had a mooch around my favourite place in Llandudno, a little antique/junk shop that has an ever changing array of wonderful goodies and just look at what he had in this time.
Only an eight cup teapot that perfectly matches my 1930's pan ... it just had to be mine :-)
We have decided as we doubt we will ever really need an eight cup teapot, and we don't like to have too many purely ornamental things, this is going to be our new Sealed Pot. Only of course we won't seal up the lid just throw any change in without looking at the contents.
He also had these nice brass candlesticks, and I've been looking for some to hold a stash of candles I found when sorting out last Summer. Because I bought both items he knocked the price down from £30 to just £22 ... result.
Then I might have called in at the British Heart Foundation shop on my way back to the car and found these two books. I'm currently watching the Dvd of the 1940's House ... so it was fate!!
To try and keep myself under control I have decided to record every purchase whether food or non-food in the accounts pages at the back of my diary.
In other news ... look what has started to show their sweet little faces to the world.
It will look wonderful in a couple of weeks as more and more of them open up and cover the resting place of our late pets ... Archie, Charley, Caldwell II and Rosy.
