In honour of Jon collecting our latest eBay purchase from Wales today I dug out my Welsh Tweed cape to wear to walk to the corner shop, I found on a girly chazzing trip to Shrewsbury earlier this year.
|Vintage cape (Age Concern) Grey patent boots (River Island 2008 sale £20) Bermona Trend hat (local hospice charity shop)|
Here's the antique French corbeille bed we won on eBay. Can you believe that there was only one other bidder and it sold for just £129? It came complete with the bed base and the original horsehair mattress and despite the lovely seller being very disappointed with the price he gave us a pair of matching bedside lights.
Hopefully the decorating will be completed by the end of the week so that I can do a dedicated blog post to our guest room entirely created with second-hand finds, just like every other room in our house.
The boys are both much better today, thanks for the well-wishes and positive vibes. Hopefully the ladies of the house are made of sterner stuff.
