bank holiday finds: volume one

This will be the first of a number of posts showing my treasures from the weekend!

First up, the charity shops in Norwich provided this little lot:

Biscuit tin (60p), tiny deer (80p), flower pot (80p) and owl mug (10p). I have no idea what I will do with the tiny owl mug, but couldn't resist his little, drowsy face!

This all came from the car boot sales: tatty Habitat picture frame that I am going to paint (20p), lamp base that I was going to spray paint a shiny red, but might now leave as it is (50p), Ladybird books (25p each), more little deer (50p for the pair), old suitcase (£1), Country Living book (50p) and lots of fabric - this is one piece of about five (£1).

A closer look?

The deer are salt and pepper shakers - and I fear they may turn into a collection!

Close up of the fabric - I have plans for this! I thought it was quite old, but it has 1988 printed on the selvedge. Do the eighties count as vintage yet?

Country Living - Shoestring Chic - a lovely book, which I will scan some pictures from at some point.
The rest of my purchases deserve a post each. Look out for Volumes Two to Five! (sorry!)

oh my! these are amazing finds! The 80's are certainly vintage! But anyway the pattern might be much earlier! t.x
