Wish list numeroo 5

Just a quick wish list today.
I have a busy brain at the moment, ideas a plenty and I do want to start making but
I am awaiting the arrival of crucial supplies so I have yet to get started.
I came to the decision that there is no better way to bide time than a bit of dreaming and wishing.

The sun has made me think about camping and whilst thinking about camping I have been thinking about blankets, obviously.
To be more specific I have been wishing for Welsh blankies.

And on investigating theses beauties I have stumbled upon all of these.

It is not good to wish for a blanket and for it to develop into a want for lampshades, chairs and purses!!
Too late now, I want it all. Maybe a mug is within my financial grasp.

Once I have placed my Welsh blanket on the floor of my teepee (I do actually own a teepe, not just in my dreams) I am thinking that I will require a few of these for the outside.

The more flowery and 'way out' the better. With a bit of luck I will acquire some of these whilst jumbling and booting. I will be visiting a car boot this weekend and it will be the first this year as I always seem to be busy on a Sunday.

I really, really want a yacht. Not a full size one, Mr Betty and I have already had a sailing phase and the wetsuit situation was all too much for us.
I want one just like this one for my window ledge. I don't mind if I stumble across an old battered boat that needs new sails and a lick of paint in fact I think I would rather enjoy a boat renovation project.
My last wish list item today has a very sad tale attached to it.

As you may already know, I am a woman.....
I am a woman who is lacking......
I am a woman who has no dressing table and truth be told I have never had a dressing table in all my 21 years ;)

I WANT a dressing table and I really want an Ercol dressing table.
How wonderful they are, I just love Ercol. I already know what I would put in the drawers and that the drawers would be lined with beautiful paper. I can see my nail polish collection and little glass bowls holding slides and brooches dotted around on it's lovely varnished top. I can even picture my puffy morning face in it's perfectly angled day...

This eve I will mostly be eating a scone with jam, drinking tea and dreaming of kitties sailing in yachts with pretty sails.

Thanks for reading. X

  1. I've just been on a treasure hunt and seen a dressing table very similar to the one you want ... don't know whether it was Ercol, but very similar. I'm sure you'll be lucky soon! Good luck with the Car Boot Sale, I'm off to one later, hope it's better than last time! Have a lovely day, Claire xx

  2. I was eyeing up those very same welsh blanket designs this morning....and am now coveting the wallpaper behind the lovely dressing's the heat...think I need to lie down xxxxxx

  3. Gaah, that dressing table is so gorgeous! I'm really after one too, all I have at the moment is a wooden little two tiered cake trolley! I love welsh tapestry too, I think my Mum has a blanket! XO.

  4. I think it's about time you invested in this dressing table, 21 years! Good enough excuse to get one right now! I have some of those chairs, I have a stripey 70's lounger too and deck hairs too :)

  5. I adore welsh tapestry but I know what you mean - the prices are sky hight. I do own a welsh tapestry skirt, though, which I got from a jumble sale for 50p. Very pleased with that! I've never had a dressing table either. xx
