A little bit of vintage

Popping in to post a couple of new old things :)

 I have a few of these little cardboard cases, they are great for using to display my reworked jewellry, the dark pink one fits inside the other, the lady I bought them from only asked fifty pence, bargain !
 This lovely compact I couldn't resist, I had promised myself I wouldn't buy any more after I had bought one to use, and upto now I have been good but this was so nice. 
 I picked up this tiny book at the bootfair on Sunday, books are another downfall but at 10p how could I leave it. It has lovely garden poetry in it.
 Oh and this one,I have a lot of Ladybird books many from when my children were young, this one is for my daughters collection it brings back nice memories.
and this, there is something about the paper in these old books that I love.
Well thats all for now I'll leave you with one of my favourite flowers in my garden at the moment the lovely

 Have a lovely week wherever you are
