Vintage things...

We've been so busy lately this blog has been forgotten about! Jay has 12 days off work from today so expect some updates on the DIY front. We have had time for some car booting & have found some wonderful vintage things.

I actually picked this large throw up from a charity shop yesterday. I plan to re-hem the edges to remove that horrible dated frill & utilise the fabric in something wonderful. Only I'm not sure what, yet. :D

A lovely telephone table, at a car boot sale last weekend. Not much damage to it, but I plan to repaint it and recover the seat. Keiko has claimed it already. I may use if for cat sleeping to get them off the precious sofa! (excuse the porch, it's my dumping ground for freecycle stuff waiting to go and new plants)

A 1970's Etch-A-Sketch as a gift for my brother-in-law who has been lusting for one recently!

Picked up these trays for putting seedling pots on. I've ran out at home. The red is originally from Ikea, and the brown has a 1970's stamp on the bottom. Both for 60p at a car boot sale yesterday.

I'm going to turn this gorgeous vintage suitcase into a cat bed! When I get around to it, I'll be sure to post photos. :D
