market day.


On tuesday we got up with the larks and flew to the market. So cold, there was a frost in London! but to compensate for the mid-winter temperature in AUGUST, we were supplied with a most beautiful sunrise.


gradually, things started hotting up, and as our frozen hands became acclimatised, we were parting with money like there was no tomorrow!
Lucky for us, only small, cheap items were attracting us this time, so all in all, a very good haul.



I bought a few of these French jam jars for my teabags and sugar!


and we both fell for this naked Paddington {although he's now called Euston}



so many kid's toys around at the moment.


we found this table rather lovely, such a nice colour, and just the right amount of roughed up.


i bought a child's knitted jumper for poor old Euston, but it was a bit on the tight side, so until he can drop a few pounds, he'll remain naked.


a found some nice toys too, and another 'pecking hen's' toy!


some fabulous dead stock 1970s french sunglasses, bridge pencils and a 1973 Alice in Wonderland board game probably for the shop. For me  I found a blue aran knit cardigan and some 1920s cotton pyjamas.



I hope to update the bucket tree soon, but you know, i always say that!
