P is for Pink and Patchy

As the three of us wandered up and down at the car boot today we knew what we were looking for. My list of wants was quite long, but the Buns was good and short. They wanted a large plastic car to take their dolls on journeys around the garden. Only two cars spotted today and both were too small. That means they're actually looking forward to coming next week in case they find one then.


I didn't get much of my mental lists wants, but I was thrilled to find more icecream pink Meakin Rosa and Johnson Bros. Rosedawn all in perfect condition.


Everything else I wanted like some 1930's incredibly filthy curtains was too much money and no one was bargaining. The knocker boys never play ball with the prices and always charge too much in my opinion. At the end of the day they're only selling in a field.


Now we're back home and I'm busy stitching some cushions together for next Sundays Vintage Market.


As usual I got distracted an ended up also doing some quick alterations to a Vintage Frock I bought at Christmas. After I'd finished sewing it was still a bit too big at the sides so I added a citrus velvet belt from Noa Noa.



This is probably my first Challenge of the Utmost Kind outfit. Not bad for three months in.

  10. Oh my goodness me - pick me up from the floor please! The Johnsons china, the patchwork, the vintage fabric - just everything! So sorry to be drooling in such an unladylike fashion over your photos in this post. I will make every effort to be more composed when I visit next time.

I looked back through other posts and saw your visited Redwings, I used to give a lot of my pocket money to them when I was little. They do such wonderful work. Have a fun weekend when it arrives, Catherine x

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment. I read all of them and really appreciate you taking the time to say hello.
I always try to get back and reply, but sometimes this may take a bit longer as pets and children always seem to need attention around here.
