So tired or not, I pulled myself out of bed in the hope that my trip would be fruitful...
Here we go with a quick post of mostly photos, to show you some of the items that I came home with yesterday morning...
Linens and hand crochet lace, including tablecloths and hand embroidered runners - Some to sell 'as-is' and some to recycle.
A few of them are boiling on the hob at the moment...You can't beat beautifully clean and pressed linens to make your table look special, can you?
A cute pyjama case.
This gorgeous old cotton item is actually an apron, probably from wartime...
As it has its original Red Cross label.
There's a pair of fancy hand knitted socks too (...just in need of a small amount of darning.)
More creative handiwork in the form of a set of pansy doilies. Adorable!
Someones collection of antique bottles was another worthwhile find for me.
Next, a funny little collection of bits and bobs that spoke to me; including a china door finger plate, enamel backed clothes brush, quirky little box and some vintage brooches and dress clips.
And my china finds included a Victorian vase and a c1940's trio.
I have plans for this collection of odd tea cups...They will reappear at the Vintage Bazaar, Frome.
OK, off I go...Dolls and angels to make, and stocking fillers to complete...Not to mention the housework (so I won't! ;-))
I would just like to mention though, something that I was alerted to by Barbara - She had seen that an article about the BBC's documentary in Shepton Mallet had appeared in the Daily Mail's TV supplement on Saturday and wondered if I'd seen it. Unfortunately I hadn't, so I asked Belinda if she had...Belinda has managed to track the piece down on the newspaper's website, which makes interesting reading for those keen to know more of what the programmes will be about. The article can be found here on Belinda's blog (which incidentally has a fab new look!)
Have a great week,
