Charity Shop Finds

I picked up this pretty little hand knitted and embroidered tea cosy a few days ago in the charity shop for £1.
 This is the back ....
 and this is the front with roses growing around the door and cottage garden plants everywhere. How sweet. 
 I also picked up this pretty trio set. I just love the pink roses and polka dot design.
 Also a few retro pieces. 
 This set has hand painted orange & green detail and reminds me of the china I think my husband's nan used to have.
 I love the design and colour of these pieces.
 This is a pretty framed print I found. Very idyllic....a country cottage in Springtime with white blossom, chickens and a lovely stream. I think I will just stare at this one and dream!

 This is a framed watercolour & ink print which captured my eye. It has been printed on a textured surface so is hard to tell that it is a print.
 The lady in the charity shop said that the 'BM' on the boat is the mark for Brixham so this maybe a picture of Brixham Harbour, a fishing port in Torbay, Devon.

I have quite a few pictures that need hanging so I think during the Easter break I shall try to get some of them up!
Hope everyone has an enjoyable weekend.
