Here is a sight to gladden the eyes. Such a pretty setting in a small, snowy church.
We had more snow in the night, but the sun was shining strongly this morning. I slithered my way along the country lanes. There wasn't much treasure in the jumble sale, but it was so friendly and I found a few bits and pieces. A silver tea spoon and a cute dish:
Some cups and saucers. I thought I wasn't buying any more china? Oh well, I liked the red stripe and thought they might do for a magazine pic at some stage (which is my excuse for everything). The stamp underneath says 22 carat gold. Interesting.
I'd gone through the local newspaper with a fine tooth comb to track down other sales as I felt in sore need of a vintage fix, and I found another event this afternoon, this time in a church hall and billed as a 'New Year fete'. A lovely old fashioned bric a brac stall laden with things awaited and I found this pretty glass butter dish.
I am also collecting spring-like things for an Easter magazine cover, so picked up a few bits of primrose and cowslip mis-matched china and a few second hand books.
So that was a very good Saturday.
- I'm a freelance journalist living in Northamptonshire with my husband and two children. I love visiting auctions and markets and writing about my inexpensive finds. I'm the editor of a local magazine, so I find out about loads of interesting things that are happening in my community, some of which I would like to share here, too.
