Car Boot Treasure
Just a quick post from me today, but I thought I’d share my latest car boot finds with you all.
As I’ve said before, I have a bit of a thing for dinky little vintage chairs. I can’t stop buying them, even though my children consider themselves far too grown up to actually perch their little bottoms upon them. Anyway, I actually walked past this little blue chair a few times before to deciding to part with £3 – I have no idea why I was undecided, because now I have it, I absolutely love it. The duck egg blue is perfect, and although it’s very weathered and worn, I think that adds to it’s charm. And it makes a very cosy spot for giraffe to take a rest.
Next up involved me rummaging through suitcases and suitcases of inky handwritten letter, papers, old school workbooks and other ephemera, from a house clearance lorry. I adore the beautiful old faded papers and stamps – there are even 1940’s bus tickets and laundry bills amongst it all. A snippet of someone’s life. I came away with a couple of bundles. I shall use them in collages, mood boards and scrapbooking, maybe even some paper bunting.
Have a wonderful weekend!
