Shall we see what's inside......?
Two girls annuals from 1949 and 1955, a wonderfully solid bread loaf tin, a fabulous vintage sewing pattern and buttons!!!
The girls annuals are marvellous. I've had such fun chuckling away at some of the gorgeous images inside but even moreso at the captions that go with them..... take a look at one or two of my favourites.....

|"You're two game lasses," he said|
Aren't they just wonderful? The bread tin was a real find too, hidden away at the bottom of a box, I'm not sure yet whether it's destined to be a plant holder or a receptacle for my ever increasing collection of craft pens. And the buttons,........ the glorious buttons, some of which have been put to good use already.
But what about the pattern......!
I bought it because I just couldn't resist the fabulous picture. I had an idea to frame it, but when I got home and explored it properly all the paper pattern pieces are there along with the instructions. I'd need to tweak it a bit as it's not my size, but now I'm starting to set myself up for another project to add to my long 'project wish list' so I think it's best I stop now.
I had a lovely time and on top of all this bumped into (more or less literally) lovely Annie from The Felt Fairy who was there supporting her daughter, my first face to face with a fellow blogger. So much excitement! My biggest regret is that I didn't buy the awe inspiringly beautiful pair of green suede shoes from the sixties that I spotted and almost certainly had my name on them, maybe next time.
Well I hope you enjoyed todays post. Thank you for visiting me and leaving your lovely comments, they are all read and very much appreciated.
Come back tomorrow when I'll have some cards to show you.
