Framed florals

These seed labels came from this nice little shop i found online. I picked up the frames at my local charity shop for 75p each. (Small interjection while i point out that 90% of my ‘finds’ in the bric-a-brac category come from this same shop, called ‘Thrift Shop 2’ on Gilmore Place. They support Birthlink. Its the only charity shop i know that you are allowed to bargain (50p here or there – all part of the fun) without being frowned upon. Also, the prices labeled never add up to the total you pay, so its always a nice surprise.) Anyway, the vision for the spare room was floral heaven, so these blend in rather well indeed.

The Glory Hole

I was delighted to recently discover a new place to forage for finds. The Glory Hole in Innerleithen, Scottish Borders, is the source of these latest treasures – a selection of collector’s Cornishware, and a beautiful vintage embroidered tea-cosy to add to the respective collections. To get into the shop, the owner had to come out the front door, there being only one passage though the precarious piles of suitcases, door-knobs, lettering stamps, china, carpets, silverware and furniture. I know where I’ll be spending my lunch break these days…
