Little things...

These pretty little tape measures are newly arrived in the shop £6.99 each.I really like the whole baboushka thing.Ive just bought a set of vintage Semyenov Russian nesting dolls just because I love them.

Laughter is the best medicine..........

First day back at school today.I will take this piece of advice and nail it to my heart....

A bit of thrifting

Its getting  quite difficult to find  really nice 'old lady stuff' at the car boot sales.However, this Sunday was a good day.Two balls of wool 50p each.A rather nice scarf in autumnal colours, a pretty teacup and saucer and an old measuring rule.
Some pretty embroidery and another tea cup
Some pretty handkerchiefs and check out the Andy Pandy and Looby Loo plate..
I couldn't resist.It made me think of Watch with Mother and now I feel really old.
