Did a little buying yesterday to replenish stocks ready for the Vintage fair next Saturday ...
This gorgeous hat had to come home with me. The net is in a beautifully muted shade of raspberry and is festooned with posies of fawn velvet and sherbet lemon flowers.
A lovely over-the-top jug with lots of gold detailing
This sweet little case was in a very sorry state, extremely dirty, worn and torn. I gave it a good clean, covered the worn handle with a length of lace ribbon and a little mother of pearl button ...
and lined the inside with some vintage sheet music.
More sheet music, with lovely covers.
A bundle of lacy trimmings to launder and wind onto dolly pegs. The picture in the background is the lid of a lovely old chocolate box I found full of silk hosiery darning threads, embroidery threads and embroidery transfers.
A large barkcloth curtain panel; fabulous design and colours.
Little man found this ... a teeny little pewter clog ... to go with these ...
... a little china bathtub and set of drawers. The drawers made by Grandpa, with the tiniest handles and marquetry detailing ... all to go in his 'Boot House'.
