This vintage wooden slat bag arrived yesterday.
(eBay find for £1.50 = $2.30)
I admit that I was a little bit disappointed that the (painted)
flower pattern on both sides
was quite faded, however, this
was easily fixed with some vintage
plastic flowers and some
Maybe I make something else for this bag but this will do
nicely for now. :)
Woke up early because the house were filled with sunshine,
perfect day for a car boot sale or two. And two we did.
We were supposed to go to the gym in the evening but we
assembled the BBQ and had a cookout and some ice cold
pear ciders instead. :))
(We'll go this morning tho.)
1980's shirt, £1. (= approx $1.55) The bead embroidery, do I need to say more?
Kids jacket, £1. (= approx $1.55) Love the pattern on this. So dapper.
1940's picnic basket, 50 pence. (= approx $0.75) I had one of these when I was a kid but it got thrown away when people cleared our house after my mom passed.
1950's novelty bottle opener in teak, 25 pence.
(= approx $0.38) How could I resist this fella?! You take his head off and there you have the bottle opener.
Amazing capri pants, 35 pence. (= approx $0.55) I rarely take photos of the clothes I find because they are often wrinkly and such, in this case I make an exception because these capris makes my bum look good and the color is amazing!
Feather thingy, 20 pence. (= approx $0.30) I'm gonna attach a hair clip to this and use it in one of my OTT hair styles for a special occasion.
Shell bracelet, 50 pence. (= approx $0.75)
Carved bangle, 50 pence. (= approx $0.75)
Vintage Spanish brooch, 75 pence. (= approx $1.15)
2 yellow bangles, 25 pence. (= approx $0.38) I really love the juicy colors of the yellow bangles and the brooch will be the perfect thing with most of my Latin styled outfits.
LP with a cool cover, free. If it has got a fruit hat I love it!
Great day at the car boot sale today! (Y-day was okay.)
The first thing I see when I entered the area is a stunning
white English Bull Terrier, of course I asked for a cuddle.
(I miss my old EBT SO much!!!)
I think this bullie was some kind of lucky charm because
I did very well finding cool stuff.
What you see is just a fraction of what I managed to drag
home this weekend!
For the future rascal. Cost between 20 - 50 pence each
(= approx 30 - 75 US cents)
It's 23 degrees Celsius and I'm sitting in our backyard
listening to Roy Orbison, sipping on a cider and eating
I'm feel extremely content and accomplished since I've
been working hard in the front and back garden for two
days, cleaned the patio furniture (we saved £75 on not
have to buy a new set) done laundry, replanted most of
my houseplantsand cleaned the house before Shabbos.
Now I'm just enjoying the solitude (man's gigging) for the
rest of the evening and hoping that the weather will be
just as nice tomorrow so we can go to car boot sales.
