Just take a look at some of the treasures I've found at a local charity shop recently. As soon as I spotted a box full to the brim of Christmas decorations my heart started pounding.
As I rummaged at the bottom of the box I was delighted to find several glass vintage baubles.
I also came across this lovely old fashioned Christmas tree stand which I managed to purchase for £1, what an absolute bargain!
This little bird has to be my favourite, she's lost the clip that fastens her to the tree but that can be sorted.
I thought at first that she had lost her tail feathers too but when I looked closer I discovered that the tail was inside the body.
With a little bit of a jiggle out it popped and will now get a little love and attention to restore her to her former glory.
