Charity Shop Finds

Here are a few of my charity shop finds from the past few weeks.
A Meakin Studio design coffee pot,
 a silver metal gravy jug which I plan to use for flower arrangements,
 two pretty fabric covered clothes hangers,
 a small, rose painted tin in the style of canal barge painting or folk art but I have no idea of it's age. The rose is also painted on the underside of the tin.
 A pretty rose crocheted doily,
 three dresses for patchwork or sewing projects,
 lace and crocheted doilies. The three at the front are very finely made. 
 A linen tray cloth,
 a set of 4 Meakin blue and white side plates with a design of peacocks and flowers
and a few more doilies which eventually I hope to use for my next bunting project.

I'm sorry if I haven't been able to comment on many of your posts recently but I have been having a few health concerns taking up my time. I hope to catch up on my reading and commenting over the weekend. I'm also really looking forward to seeing my eldest daughter Emma who returns home from uni tonight.
Enjoy your weekend and I hope the sun shines for you!

  3. I love the pottery and the little dresses - I am just taking up the reins of traditional patchwork again and so lovely cotton fabric is taking my eye.

    Really sorry to hear that you have been under the weather, but hope you are feeling better - I'm sure having your daughter home will be a great help - I know when my boys come home it is just the best tonic.

    I hope you got my message thanking you for your reply on my blogging problems. I seem to be sorted now and back on song.

    Have a good weekend.


  4. I do hope that you feel better soon and enjoy your time with your daughter.
