I've been searching for absolutely aaaaaages for a vintage magazine rack, and when I saw this little beauty for a teeny tiny £4, I snapped it up sharpish. At the moment it's sitting in the corner of our lounge, holding several half-finished crochet projects and a jumper I've started to unravel - definitely a worthwhile buy.
I had a bit of pyrex luck as well - three of these lovely plates for a single English pound - and found the glass jug with orange flowers nestled among a load of dull tumblers. I always tend to umm and ahhh a bit over glassware - I just think unless it's got a really fantastic print on it, it's a bit blah. Plus, there are always sooooo many old Wilkinsons glasses and souvenir shot glasses to sift through before you get to the good stuff.
Yes, that is a chamberpot - basically, an old ceramic lav. I've got grand plans for the Spring (I'm thinking ahead - totally not a Winter person...), which include a marvelous display of flowers and shrubs planted in these little beauties. Look at the flowers! It fits right in with my hippy-natural-eco-self-sufficient style garden perfectly. Can. Not. Wait.
This little darling actually wasn't thrifted, but gifted - my Mother-In-Law gave me this amaaaaazing tailors dummy for absolutely nowt, nil, nada. It came packaged up in a bin bag, and I actually squealed when I unwrapped it (her? Should I name her? I quite like Tallulah...) - paisley is my absolute favourite print, along with retro florals, and any plans I had of dressing her up in my vintage dresses have been completely and utterly scuppered. How could I cover her up?!
