bits and bobs and unseasonal weather

I have so much stock to add to the bucket tree that it will take me quite a few days to get round to it. I recently came by these lovely wooden finger puppets, so beautifully hand painted and i love the vintage fabric outfits! The granny puppet has a really cool white bun, and look at those blond pig-tails!

Also found this doll too, which I believe was made in Poland around the 1950/60s. So much detail went into these handmade kids toys, it's very inspiring i think.

this satchel is a bit of a treasure too, all hand illustrated with a swallow eating blackberries from the bushes...its even signed at the bottom!

So the week so far has not been quite as productive as I'd of liked due to some computer stuff which didn't go according to plan, but never mind.

I hope all you Brits are planning something nice to do on Saturday as it seems {according to the beeb anyway} we are going to have a second mini summer, with temperature set to reach 24 dergrees! Maybe a spot of sunbathing? or we might visit a city farm or Hamstead heath, or maybe just lie in the meadow...what a treat hey! {except our workshop building has just turned on the communal central heating for the winter}

Also, I've just sorted myself a new batch of vintage knitwear for the coming winter, so I hope to get them all washed and maybe show you's all...I have to launder all the blankets that we found for the bucket tree too...I don't think i will be in the mood for winterwear this weekend but we'll see.
