weekend junk shopping

Last weekend we scored some great vintage finds, as we worked our way around Hertfordshire in search of elusive treasures.

After car boot sales, charity shops, a vintage emporium and a tiny little sale in a village hall for £1 entry (steady on), I ended up with a pretty pleasing collection.

I love this bevelled frame, I thought it would be perfect for our wedding photo. I also bought a sweet little broderie anglaise top and a beaded bag.

Not shown but also purchased were two large mirrors, gardening tools, a handful of books and two Ercol chairs.

I would have loved to buy this sampler, but it was just a bit too expensive. Isn't is gorgeous though? I loved this arts and crafts dresser too...

I also found some lovely treasures in Rye a few weeks back, including a Hornsea piece I have wanted for ages...

Tomorrow I'm going to the Chelsea flower show... I'm so excited! My mother-in-law found herself with a spare ticket and very kindly asked me to accompany her. I do hope the weather improves for the weekend as it's been raining all week.

I hope you have a lovely weekend x
