Sorry I haven't been around for while, all that DIY and trying to get things finished swallows up your time doesn't it? Anyway I'm back - well honestly I never went away but I'm back as in online!
I officially came back to work on Monday, which is weird cos I work for myself but I gave myself some time away the last month, not real time away, you can't do that when you run your own business but I didn't work at it full on as usual but as of Monday, eek I'm back! Of course now I'm back I have sooo much to catch up on, but I also have loads of new ideas for blogs post, however this won't be one of the new idea posts, sorry!
Anyway I had a couple of lucky & cheap finds lately which I want to share.
Remember those lovely sherry glasses I got, you can see them here well I found matching shot glasses for £1, yes a £1 whoo hoo! So of course I bought them, here they are
I'm so happy I have some more of those lovely glasses! Sorry for the bad pic, I'm a bit sleepy! Anyway very interestingly on the shot glasses France is imprinted on the base so I'm assuming they're French. I'm wondering if I can get a whole set now, they are so cute I would love more!
Ok next up, I need to explain. If you've been collecting this stuff forever, you will have also bought and sold forever because unless you're a millionaire you wouldn't have the house room for all the stuff. Why am I telling you this, well as a subject covered before and by other, there are always vintage regrets for me, most of mine have been shoes I've sold, even though I never wore them and probably never would I still regret selling them! Anyway I've regretted selling other stuff too but usually you just think ah well, that was nice, why did I sell it, but I did so what the heck. You rarely get a second chance at these things but guess what I did. Now please don't think I'm crazy but both me and my husband loved this and we don't know why we parted with it and no it's nothing special but we loved it. What is it? A rice holder, but a pretty special one.
It was only a £1 again, and we're super happy we got it again :o)
In other news I got the curtains up in Paul's art room, I wanted to put these ones up because they're arty in a way and they're pretty faded so it doesn't matter if he ends up splashing a bit of paint on them, they are lovely though!
Here's a closer look!
So there you go, some stuff I've been doing, hopefully I'll post more often from now on, although I am preparing for a bit event next weekend at Twinwood, where hopefully I'll do some filming so you can see what it's all about, if I remember to take my camera!
