monday`s hunter gathering!!!

May I introduce Her Royal Highness Queen Victoria.
a fab find on my travels yesterday , I managed to buy some really interesting and quality items including this vintage print , a lovely green corner shelf, more pretty rose teacups and saucers, some good quality Mappin and Webb silver plate, 2 jardinieres, one a large arts and crafts copper, the other is Royal Doulton both have at least 100 years in age each. I have yet to sort out the little treasures in the vanity case I will publish as soon as I have a chance to sort and photograph,
what a chilly start to the day but i felt that by lunch time spring is here, the sun was shinning , the birds are tweeting and on the way to the shop i saw the prettiest display of snowdrops under some trees , maybe if i remember i will photo and post them too. hope your having a good week .........Hx

More notebooks!

I`ve gone a bit mad on these notebooks !
sometimes one thing leads to another and after finishing and selling my first batch of vintage seed packets notebooks I thought about all the lovely old postcards and photographs . so I now have notebooks for the avid traveller with old stamps on old maps, ladies in hats , vintage beauty`s , young lovers and the the perfect notebook for the bride to be to put all the notes and thoughts leading up to the wedding . they sell for £4.50 each , the perfect little gift for someone , and easily posted..
Have a good week ......Hx
