I worked my way through five whole loads of laundry yesterday. I felt like I did not stop all day. Not sure how it happened but I just I got waaayy behind with it all last week, and my laundry basket was completely overflowing. But it's all done now, well thats to say it's all clean and dry and is now sitting in a huge mountainous pile waiting to be sorted and put away. Oh, and some will be packed into a bag this morning ready for our five day jolly-holiday to the coast *squeeeeeeeeaaaaal*
I spent a little time yesterday packing up a small box with Connievan Kit ready to take with us :: things we had forgotten on the last trip, things we discovered would be Very Useful for Connievan to have and some new purchases too (I got my new pink polkadot kettle a few days ago yippeee!)
Can I show you a few recent bits n bobs that I'm very excited about?? These are a few little things I picked up on Saturday when I took a happy jaunt to a vintage fair. A vintage First Aid tin found it's way to me and I am so happy to have it. It's perfect for Connievan, don't you think?
I also couldn't resist these french inspired tins, they're reproduction ones so are all nice and shiny clean inside.
But my bestest and most heart-skippy find was these little vintage painted coat hangers. Do you know, when I first saw them I really honestly thought my heart would come flying out of my mouth, I was sooo beside myself with falling in complete love with them.
Aren't they adorable?? I LOVE the truly vintage colours, the way they are worn and a little paint chipped, and the fact that one of them has a little name written on the back. So sweet. And only 50p each, I nearly passed out with happiness when they became mine-all-mine for £2.50.
They'll be perfect to hang in Connievans wardrobe cupboard, I'm planning on crocheting some little flowers and hearts (stuffed with lavender) to hang on them, and every time I think of this Pending Project I get to feeling sooo giddy! Such fun!
This delightful heart was not a Vintage Purchase, but a gift for Connievan. How wonderful it is to have friends who are brimful of kindness and thoughtfulness and do such sweet things like buying our caravan a present, wrapping it in brown paper and string and posting it through the letterbox. I just love that I can take this heart with me today and hang it up and feel at home-sweet-home, yet be on holiday at the same time. Perfect.
Have a wonderful week everyone, see you when we get back :o)
