Car boot treasures

When we were at the caravan t'other week we popped over to Kendal to have a look at the car boot. 

I love rummaging through the boxes looking for treasure and get so excited when it becomes mine.  I think I may even have a bit of an addiction to all things vintagey as I dragged my mum to the local auction house to see what I could buy.

These were my latest finds.....

A wooden cutlery tray - a bargain at £1.......

A Meakin jug (has a small crack) - another bargain at 50p and destined to be the home for my knitting needles in my craft room (I promise I will post pics when I finally finish it!)

A wooden darning mushroom... I saw one of these at a vintage fair and just really wanted one.

Not really vintage but looks lovely in my new bathroom and cost a lot less than a new picture would have.

And lastly my favourite little find......a yellow Empire Ware dish and lid for a mere 50p

My treasures from the auction are waiting for a bit of tlc but again I promise that this will be a post for the future x x x x


  1. You and I love the fun things to find, don't we? I have a new teapot coming in the mail soon.. can't wait to show you! Did you see the vintage Corning ware buffet server I found? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

    1. Will need to have a peep Teresa, I've been to the car boot again this morning but not as many treasures. I did find a lovely tea set and old fashioned pinny x : )
