While boyfriend was at the dentist, I went to one of the junkshops that I don't visit so often.
Came away with some sweet little items that made me smile. Cheap and cheerful!
I found some wooden hangers with all sorts of inscriptions - again I restrained myself to buy just two. We are short on them so will be back another day to pick up some more.
Rummaged around in the kids' section in search for some large plastic animals to make some of those cool upcycled planters which I've been seeing everywhere for a while now. I found some small ones, not really the size I wanted, but I just had to have these particular three.
I love their colours, all muted and very seventies - the ram in the middle is dated on its tummy Britains Ltd. England ©79.
Then I dived into the junkshop's big basket of loose buttons and picked out a lozenge-shaped amber-coloured lucite button, three large mother-of-pearl coat buttons, and a toffee-coloured vegetable ivory button with intricate surface detail. They are of course for my ever-growing vintage buttons collection.
