More goodies

Had another trip to the charity shop in search of a microwave but no luck, (I was given a huge old one from a neighbour today, but it blew all the house electrics when i switched it on ! )
but did get this Midwinter fashion tea set , 6 of each , cup, saucer and plate, for £3
the decoration is actually gold, but it doesn't really show up in the photo.

I also got some brand new slippers for £1.50, my lot all said they look like granny slippers but I don't care ! they are so warm and cosy, lol

My Mum brought me this glass chopping board up from Yorkshire on sunday, love it !
fingers crossed someone donates a microwave this week !

At last !!!!

After a couple of boring weeks , with nothing at either the car boot or charity shop, this week there were things I wanted !!
I only went to the charity shop because I had to drop off some donations, and the first thing I spotted as I went through the door was this !
Its the 113th edition, I can't work out the date, according to google it could be either 1923 or 1931, these are some of the adverts in the back,
inside the front cover
for some reason I was only charged 75p for this and another hardback (Peter Kay's 2nd book).
Next I spotted this table cloth,
close up on the embroidery,
Who ever made it was so neat with thier stitches, it's almost as lovely on the back. £2 well spent I think !
These 6 Enoch Wedgwood plates were just £1,
close up on the pattern, they are more purpley in real life,
Next up, a pair of Colclough 'Star dust' Cup, saucer and cake plate sets, £1 for the lot

I'm off back to the shop tomorrow as my microwave blew up yesterday and I'm hoping they have some in, they are usually about a fiver, you never realise how much you use a microwave until its gone!

I'm linking up with the magpie monday gang, so pop over there and enjoy !

Poor pickings, so heres some I bought earlier !

Morning all, I shouldn't really be sat here posting as I've so much cleaning to do , but it's been ages since I blogged so thats a good excuse to have 5 mins sit down, before I tackle this first,
Its's covered in dust !

Theres been nothing of interest at the charity shop or car booty so heres a few things I bought earlier this year(all covered in dust !)
I got this Kenwood multichef thing for £2, complete with loads of attatchments,
and made this for my daughters 15th birthday last weekend

think I've shown these before, but I'm still trying to find out if they are old or what, got them free with some other 50's ornaments
I got these little horses given from a friend down the road,

These two horses were £1, but someone has knocked one of the shelf and snapped its leg !

These salt and pepper cats were 50p

I love this glass vase, I just know someones going to knock it off and smash it !! I have no idea how old this is, any ideas ? Only £1.
Here are some of the paperweights my daughter keeps making me buy, all £1 each

My brother gave me these freaky moneyboxes (shelf pottery)
