New finds

I guess we all like to root around in charity shops and bargain shops.  Where we live there are quite a few bargain/pound shops in the shopping centre - this is where I found this enamel cup which I thought had possibilities for a photo or two (I may even use it to drink tea).  The small tray with violets on came from a 50 pence stall in the market.  I think it may have been part of a vintage (aka old) dressing table set as I remember my grandmother having a similar one.  Not a bad haul for one week.  Now where shall I keep them? ....

Still going strong

Had a busy time visiting family this month so not been taking as many photos as usual although I've found my iPhone useful for taking shots when I've not had the 'big' camera with me.  My sweet peas are still going strong in spite of wind and rain and go well  with this little dish I found on a charity market stall this morning.
Hope everyone is enjoying what may be the last of the summer!

Found and taken home

I'm joining in with Kim Klassen's Friday Finds this week.  The small tall vase? jug? was found in a charity shop and is the same colour as the bowl which I bought in Scotland earlier this year.  The piece of wood was picked up on the beach by HO who is tired of being pestered to look for/ make/ find at the back of the garage some textured wood to use as a background.  Have to say this was perfect and was duly cut into three pieces with the nails left in as they didn't have any sharp ends.  Edited in LR and Elements with Kim's texture 'brushed linen' and 2LO French Script.  I'll still be looking for bits on the beach though!
