Car Booty

Having given up trading at Spitalfields Market, it is now quite a novelty to do whatever I fancy on a Sunday, for the first time in a couple of years.

This week, getting up at 6.30am seemed like a good idea at the time, to go to a car boot sale. By 1pm, it felt like it was time to go back to bed, but it was all worthwhile, just for these 2 fairly weird items...

Straw stuffed dog, that looks like a goat, according to the boy. Price? 50p

Such a cute little face... and quite possibly, fleas...

And a fairly freaky Sprite brooch... I heart it. Plus, it was from the best stall there, which happened to be our friend's, so he gave it to me gratis. Even better!

It felt soooo good having a non-sewing day for a change, even more so, as we spent the afternoon at Sir Francis Drake's hunting lodge, in deepest darkest Devon, which a decadent friend had hired for the week to celebrate her birthday.

Seriously beautiful, and at 400 years old, it has GOT to be haunted.

You can read more about this amazing place here.

And in other news, found a tick in my leg that evening. Gross-tastic. Fingers crossed I haven't got Lyme's disease now. Eurghhh.

Anyway, now the Japanese order is winging it's way to Japan, you can expect lots of new, exciting things happening on the website over the next few weeks.

Keep your eyeballs peeled. Not literally. That would just be disgusting.

Non tick-related lovings.
