Easter Booty

I had a very successful Easter weekend in Cornwall buying for the website and have spent what seems to be the whole week listing it all. Of course I had to keep some things for myself! This enamel jug is perfect for just outside the bathroom.

and I couldn't resist this French hip bath. I can't decide whether to convert it into a chair with a really nice vintage fabric cushion or whether to use it as a garden planter. What do you think?

And this is my favourite! Now we shall have the aroma of freshly ground coffee each morning as it still works.

A couple of weeks ago I went to the Country Living Spring Fair in London. I have been before as it is just such a good day out with so many wonderful things to see (and buy). I was very pleased to see the stalls selling the most were the ones selling authentic vintage items and one man couldn't cope with the long queue of ladies wanting to buy his vintage china.

I bought some trims from two lovely ladies called Miss Rose Sister Violet. I think the spotty one is rather 'Bodeny' and it will look nice attached to a cardigan. The velvet rose one is self adhesive so very easy to attach. The pink corsage goes well with a cardigan and earrings I also bought.
