This morning I was up and out of bed mega early to get myself off to a local car boot sale. While others get their thrills from visiting designer boutiques I get my kicks from car boots sales and auctions hunting out gems for little amounts of dosh.
This morning was a good one, just take a look at what I found.
All of this!
These little cups are my favourite they are absolutely lovely and in brilliant condition. They have a beautiful hand painted design on them and are so pretty. I'm not the type to sip Earl Grey from fine china cups but I think they'll look great with flowers in or tea lights.
Last night I was browsing the Internet for Moroccan and Bohemian inspiration, there were a lot of painted mirrors and lanterns on the sites I looked at and low and behold this morning what did I find? A painted mirror and ...
a Moroccan style lantern. My car boot guardian angel was definitely with my this morning :) I'm thinking this lantern will look great lit up in the garden on a summer evening. I already have one but if I can get hold of a few more and dot them about it should work nicely.
The candle sticks have an odd tale attached to them, the other evening I came home to find that someone had left a single glass candle stick at my front door. I think I can guess who it was but as yet they haven't fessed up to it (kind thing to do, dont you think) . This morning I found a pair of glass candle sticks but one was badly damaged so I just bought the other one. When I got home I put the two together and they match! Result!
This is to make Rhubarb chutney in.
And this I thought I could paint a bright colour and put flower pots in - what do you think, will it work?
And of course plants, plants and more plants! Oh I do love a car boot sale, I've said it before but I really don't understand people who only buy new stuff and won't even entertain the idea of second hand stuff.
