..another visit to the thrift store.

It's Saturday and the weaterh is not summer like. What to do? After a nice latte at the local coffee shop I crossed the road to have a look in my favourite thrift store. Not that I need any thing. I found this lovely ceramic tea caddy with a wooden stopper. I will take it to the summer house and replace the tin box I use there. The other day I was surfing a site with second hand things, and found this beautiful brown transferware plates. I contacted a nice young woman who said she was going to be in my neighbourhood the day after and could bring it. How could I resist? I got eight dinner plates, five desert bowls, four side plates and a very pretty serving bowl! I collect brown transferware for the summer house and red for home.

I love to buy second hand when I need things, as it is good for the environment to reuse. It gives people jobs and rais money for good causes, and I get unique things! My teddy Berkeley found a good bed in the serving bowl!
