What a day I had yesterday.
I had lie in including coffee in bed (delivered by Mr Betty), I had dinner out with the men in my life, and I even enjoyed coffee and cake with a special lady.
BUT, and this is not saying that all the above were not extremely special, the time I had at Vintage Village held at Stockport's victorian market hall was beyond brill.
Oh my goodness did I spend some pennies on some special treasures.
I think this must be my best haul yet.
|that'll be 1 pence please sir|
|Crystal Waterfall is desperate to move in to her new nest|
she has been after a house with shutters for quite some time
|the decor is right up her (and my) street|
music is essential, Perry Como is on as I type
|the phone is already installed, she does like to chat on the phone ALOT|
|the furniture, oh the furniture...no preloved furniture for Crystal|
|she has some kiddos, not sure she will make such a good mother ;-0|
|another Staffordshire jar to add to my collection|
Are you well jel ?
I bought the doll house, the furniture, the cash register and the Little Betty from Waynes 'All Our Yesterdays' stall. He had been lucky enough to purchase stock from a toy shop that had closed down in the 70's. All its most wonderful, pristine stock, had been preserved in the stockroom for all those years.
I already knew that the house would be for sale on Sunday, I was so determined not to buy it. Obviously my resolve soon flew out of the door when I saw it in real life.
It is absolutely perfect.
It is a Danish house made by Danse and apparently was the cheaper alternative to the Lundby.
I can kind of see that it is a budget model, no staircase, no window frames etc but I just love the decor.
I had wanted a toy sewing machine for quite a while....don't we all.
When I saw that there was a Little Betty it just had to be mine. It is perfect, it is a lovely blue and it's original box is almost as pretty as the actual machine.
I can't wait to furnish my new house with all my fave furniture and the new bits I bought yesterday. It is going to look fab. I will share it later in the week.
I have a few blog posts lined up for this week. I have a 'Smile Post' that includes new equipment and some very exciting news.
I also want to do a post on miniatures that will include my doll house....furnished and the Lundby house I recently renovated for my friend Ms Beth.
Thanks for reading and don't be too jel ;-) x
