Just two stalls along there was this scarf for 20p and I thought that it went quite well with the bag - one day I will photograph my scarf 'collection' (I am wincing at that thought).
This other one was such lovely colours and it was only one of our English pounds - I have one or two of these wooden handled bags but....
Also in a proper shop ( this is such a rare event it merits underlining and italics) - I bought myself two vintage dresses. Rare indeed to find old dresses that now fit my expanding girthage and rare again to find them, at what I call, a reasonable price. I do realise that I have lost touch with the 'real' cost of things - just to highlight this I will share that I only have two pairs of shoes. Both pairs are well over 6 years old and both were bought in a sale - I alternate shoes daily. I think that I would faint if I had to buy shoes today. Dom hates my shoes...I am a bag lady...mmm...I am now wondering if I could fashion some shoes out of vintage embroideries...
The other dress is a cotton frock from the late 50s with a wonderful little bird print - nice and chirpy.
When I produced my purse to pay for the dresses the shop owner asked where I got my purse from...a bit of chatting later and she asked if she could sell some of my things in her shop. I will be a little boastful here and say that I have been asked this before always shy away from it - today I said yes. I decked out a little vintage basket with some items and tra la la'd back to the shop on my bike - I felt very Dickensian taking my goods to the Emporium.
By the way whilst sorting through tablecloths for tea on Sunday I came across the matching tablecloth to the bag that I made - surely you didn't think that I would have just the one!!!
Sad though that this photo is now on Pinterest - it would be so much kinder if people who used Pinterest asked first or even if you could leave a kind message here but the taking without asking is poor indeed
As my dad would say - this looks like delerium!!!
I must GET ON WITH PROPER JOB
