The last few weeks have been really hectic what with managing two wedding fairs and spraining my foot (ouch) so I have hardly had any time to go thrifting! I have also been immersed in my new articles for Reloved magazine so much of my buying has been on second hand and vintage craft supplies. But never fear, I have managed to snap up these lovelies.

Firstly I could not resist this vintage tin for a few reasons. Firstly I love the pattern for its retro simplicity. I also think it is a great size although for now it is simply sitting on the floor in a corner without a true purpose except for looking nice! It was bought from Vintage Things Forever which is run by Jane who I know through Facebook groups.
I also bought this Baretware biscuit barrel from her. I have been searching for one in this pattern for ages, but wanted it to be in great condition as I want to use it for biscuits. I love the idea of the biscuit barrel, it reminds me of my grandma’s house and choosing which biscuit to have from a great loose selection. We are now firmly following this idea here at home.
While on one of my usual monthly thrifting sessions to a local charity sale I found these Carnaby Pyrex bowls to add to my collection. I have loads, all in different patterns, which I use for my daily porridge.
I also bought this cute baby blanket for Kitty’s babies.
Saving the best until last – I bought this amazing 14 carat ring. The jewel is in fact glass (oh if only it was a ruby!) but is still amazing! The colour is lush and now matches my nail varnish!!
