Meggy has passed the 11 month mark and is well on her way to
her first birthday!!
Can you believe that?
She is the most beautiful and placid little girl and we are lucky
enough to see her fairly often...along with her wonderful mum and dad.
On Saturday, we paid a visit to an Antiques fair in Exeter.
It wasn't much cop, as they say ... too much jewellery and china
for my liking but I did spot this, unopened and a mere snip at around £45 :
I opened it and there were some coloured candles inside.
It wasn't until I got it home that I found a
receipt inside... from January 1955.
Candles for Angel Chimes (who remembers that?!)
6 shillings.... and 1 shilling and sixpence postage!
Only three of the candles were used.
It's funny how a girl can be quite happy with a box of coloured candles...
and a tin of vintage cotton reels!!
And finally... here's a sneak preview of some vintage fabric
which is about to be added to my shop!
All gorgeous...but not half as gorgeous as...
