I've always wanted one of these .....

My heart's desire ........ A French bottle carrier, not as rusty as I would like it, but I'm not complaining.
 Purchased at Shepton a couple of weeks ago.

I couldn't resist this one either ~ comes complete with it's own family of spiders ....... Eek!

When I was in the States recently at a local swap meet, a seller had four of these lovely plant holders which are often used by florists or funeral parlours. Although mine isn't too big and the flowers are not quite as glamorous as they might be, it's in lovely condition and I look forward to finding a home for it somewhere, amongst the boxes and piles .........! My husband breathed a big sigh of relief when I told him that I nearly bought four of them and that he should count himself lucky I was only buying one this time.

This lovely cornishware jug which has a tiny nick on the side was an absolute
bargain at a £1.00, big smiles all round.

Another set of steps to add to my collection, they are really shabby
 and scruffy, just how I like them.

Sorry it's not very interesting ~ more to follow .......

  3. I love the bottle holders, especially the one with spiders inside! I also like the jug... what a bargain! And I agree that the shabbiness of the steps just makes them even more desirable :)

  6. I think you have such interesting items on your blog Haze. So many different things to look at. I knew you would get another ladder lol. I love the bottle holders too, very vintage shabby chic and just what you love. The plant stand is cool too..You are starting some more collections I just know it....But if it makes you happy, then I am thrilled lol x

  7. The steps are delightful, I love them. You have some very nice pieces of cornishware too...Keep posting I love to see what is coming next....

  8. if any consolation to your husband, when we went to US I brought back 12 50s wooden coca cola crates- it meant we had to fed-ex our clothes homes cos of the weight in the suitcases!
    The crates were only $4.00 each but I hate to think what they ended up costing!

  9. Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog :)
