Peculiar weather leads to peculiar finds. My theory; when the weather is indecisive so am I - flitting from one thing to another leaving a trail of half read books, abandoned films, and semi finished makes in my wake. I'm a hurricane of nondescript.
If it weren't for the weather I'm not sure I'd have decided that a quizzical looking, white porcelain cat was an essential buy - the same can be said of the spectacularly gaudy brooch, although it looks as though it cost a doubloon or two which will be perfect for a Pirate themed wedding party I have coming up. You read it right, a pirate themed wedding party - how fantastic is that!?
China picture frames are my secret love - I know, I know - nursing home chic! I'm not a closet octagenarian I promise, just a fan of pretty florals on china. For twenty pence it was worth the risk of looking like I'd burgled a pensioner to furnish my bedroom. I regret nothing.
Period films/dramas have such an enviable selection of props, my eyes are drawn to the dressing table of whichever heroine I'm rooting for - usually there'll be a selection of pretty glass bottles and a beautiful hand mirror lying on it's surface. There comes a point where a girl can have more than enough in the way of scent bottles and trinket jars and I'm there. The era of the hand mirror has begun and I was hopeless against the seductive powers of this one!
Lockets are magic - they can contain secrets, tributes to a lost love, tiny representations of our most deeply held desires, and best of all they are worn close to the heart. Being pale I tend to opt for silver jewellery but this little gold locket cast it's spell and came home with me - next up is a search for the perfect length of skinny ribbon to thread it on.
