Last Wednesday the carboot field was flooded. I arrived full of anticipation and with a pocketful of pennies and then had to drive on by. Luckily today it was nice and dry and there were a few treasures still to be found.
I couldn't believe my luck when I spotted these two floral tins. The round one is a Cadbury's biscuit tin and the large square one is Huntley & Palmer's. For a serious tin addict, I'd say they're amongst the best I've found so far.
I couldn't say exactly why I liked this Firth of Clyde toffee tin, I just did. Some things you know why you like and others, you just know you want to take home with you. I felt quite sad when I opened it up as it has carefully rolled bundles of garden twine inside. When Mr Bun looked inside he felt the same way. We both thought of the person who had saved those useful things in their toffee tin. Here we are doing exactly the same with our tins. Some have buttons, some beads and others bits of this and bits of that.
On the same stall as the sailing tin, I found these Rosa pink dishes. I've wanted some shallow bowls for a while now as the soup season is upon us. Now how lovely to have some in a delicate shade of pink.
The other thing that has been on my mental list for a while now has been a shelf to go over my patchy armchair. Not overly exciting I know, but I found just the shelf today, albeit in nasty yellow pine. Being impatient I wanted to put it up straight away, so I got my trusty drill out and set to. Mr Bun bought it for me an age ago as he hates hearing the letters D.I.Y and leaves it to me to bodge up our walls. So a few holes later, a lot of dust and a lick of paint and we have one slowly drying shelf up.
By this evening it was all dry, so I tried the minimal shelf look out. Since looking at this I've filled it with more stuff. I fail miserably with minimal.
