Oopsie. Didn't mean to take a blogging mini break there. I guess there were animals that needing saving and ghosts that needed freeing after all. A womans work is never done. Obviously I've still found time to paint the kitchen ceiling, paint the corner cabinet and start the designs for the next splashback. Simultaneously.
I'm not showing you the finished corner cabinet. Truth be told I've created a monster. More of that another time...
This is the primer stage. This is how we live. House Beautiful it's not.
Onto second hand scores.
I found this footed ironstone bowl at the flea market.
Still can't get that horizon straight in my photos. I really have a wonky eye.
It has all the wedding anniversaries on it. It's funny, I got this a few days after our anniversary which we both forgot!
Fortunately we're neither of us sentimental types so we don't mind.
The chazzing has been quite thin on the ground really. The boot sale still hasn't recovered from the Christmas break and the cold weather puts people off. Can't blame them. I wouldn't want to stand around in the cold for six hours on a Sunday when I could be nibbling on a croissant in my cosy home.
But I did spot the most curious thing at the flea market. Those of a nervous disposition, read no more. If you're eating, look away now. You have been WARNED.
The man selling this said it had been on his stall for SIX years and no one wanted it. So he GAVE it to me.
Leaves a nasty taste in the mouth doesn't it?
By way of an apology I'll offer a little competition...
Do you think you know what it is? Leave a comment below and correct answers will be drawn from a hat. I promise the object above is NOT the prize. I shall find something more suitably suitable. Overseas folk can guess too please. And make sure you're not a 'non-reply blogger' so I can contact you.
That's all for now folks, I'll bid you adieu. I'll try harder next time. And I have a lot of blogs to catch up with.
