I thought I would share with you what I found at the boot fair today. I bought lots of hankies all snowy white. I wish I had bought them all now, I picked out 11. The picture has lovely embroidery

A few doileys and tray cloths, I need these like a hole in the head I just can't resist if the price is right.

I love this little deco watch and it keeps perfect time. I have been looking for one with a strap like this for ages.Brooches are a bit of a passion of mine not that I have lots, just what catches my eye. The one at the top has a deep coloured stone and has very fine filligree work on the back the red  one said take me home :)
Sadly the little ring box was empty but I love it.

This pic is a bit fuzzy,a metal  brooch a sixpence you can put on a chain, the stick pin is forget me nots and a rose brooch. I got these last week. I still have lots to show you it's been ages since I posted anything.

Next week I will endeavor to take pics of a few more things, in between attacking the garden, having a go at my sewing machine, baking etc etc don't think  I'll ever be a Stepford wife. 
I have just had a good read of all the blogs, everyone seems to be enjoying the summer or Autumn
Thinking of you all enjoy the week

Hi Cate, love the look of your blog. Oh what lovely booty you found. I get so jealous of you lot 'over there' and all the loverly lolly you find. If I ever win the lottery and go to visit dear old Mum, I will be dragging her around to see what I can find. Note to self.....if it ever happens, remember to hire a wheel chair so she won't have to walk and grumble.

Love your latest finds. I've a friend who dyes doileys different colours and it really gives them a new lease of life.
