Well, so far 2011 hasn't been too bad at all. This week in particular has been a good one with the purchase of a few interesting bits and bobs and some progress on one or two of my 2011 goals.
So first up let me show you what I bought this week...
These wonderful old French knitting dolls. Aren't they cute (if not a little prim looking). They're a bit battered in places but that just adds to their charm.
This is my favourite one, although you should never have favourites of course.
whilst on my travels I found this little wooden bird too - lovely. At this stage I must say I was starting to feel smug and pleased with myself.
The other quality find of the week is this little box/cabinet. Just before Christmas a friend told me about a new shop that had opened in a nearby village selling old used items, just my kind of thing, so I popped over to check it out. It was great, they had so many lovely items and all with reasonable price tags.
I spotted this little box and had to have it, I'm not too sure what it was originally used for but I think it was to be put on a table top as there are no fixings or marks to suggested it was once hung on a wall.
Since bringing it home I've been taking it from room to room holding it up against the walls to see where it looks best - this seems to be a ritual I have to go through whenever I buy something that needs to be wall mounted!
The other exciting thing that I did this week was to open a business bank account - OK, I know it's probably not that exciting to you but humour me, it means I'm one more step closer to starting my website and selling some of my work :) Now I just need to come up with a good name for the site and I'm off the mark...watch this space.
I've also started my picture diary which I must admit isn't going brilliantly but it's started so that's a good thing. I'll show it to you at a later date when it's looking more impressive.
I hope you've all had a great week too!! xx
