New this week ...

The sweetest little lampshade, with berries, birds and frolicking bunnies!
French enamel enema pot(!) makes a great string holder!
 Diddly little buttons, mainly mother of pearl and glass.
Beautiful pair of shoe stretchers
1911 Coal Mines Act leaflets
Pretty little basket and pair of Missoni style cushions
Tiny pack of Patience cards and gorgeous cobalt blue elbow length kid gloves
Snuggly Mohair wraps
All sold
A wonderful long length of bunting featuring the flags of England, Wales, the Royal Standard of Scotland, Canada and what I think is the Australian red ensign, in excellent condition.
British Made on each flag
Sold to me as a French cheeseboard?  Fabric covered board with bamboo handle.
A sweet little case that I shall be keeping for display.  And I have been making more of these ...
Brooch pillows
 With a ribbon or lace band to slot in a photo of a loved one, a favourite picture or a postcard.
Whew, it's nearly Friday ... have a great weekend everyone!

Sorry, but I've had a hard time getting past the enema pot!
Love the shade, basket and flags though and of course the sweet hearts...they're beautiful :o)

Love the bunting and the tiny suitcase....not sure if I could cope with the enema pot either.
I think I would be getting flashbacks to my nursing days every time I needed a piece of string!
