you shall have a fishy...



we went for a day out in the East End of London yesterday. We started at Spitalfields market (no surprise) and we found some great treasures! So lovely to stop by and say hello to Jo and have a look at her beautiful stall. She has got such a good eye for collecting. We fell in love with these fish that she's been selling...I wish I could have bought them all, but funds were restricted a little.
I discovered that she's also selling them online in her Toot Shop too.

You can just about spy her behind the fish.


Other things I saw were: a lovely old Olympus camera...sadly not working properly.


a squashed frog...hmm, Im getting an idea from that one.


tiny clogs! bit of shame they were too big for our Little'un at the mo.


Lovely hat box...


We bought...


amazing knitted coat hangers for my growing collection (which Im going to bestow to Pehr one day she has her own room and wardrobe). Check out these folding ones...


...Handy for our camper van ; ) Our van actually came with its original 1970s fitted wardrobe, like you need some where to hang your shirt and jacket when you are camping eh. Unfortunately it took up too much space.

My favourite purchase was this beach parasol. Because we love the beach (like most!) we will need some kind of shade now that we have a babe, and I was planning to buy a modern one for £25 off Amazon. The next day, I find this one, its better made and beautiful and the same price! Its made in Germany(I think!), not China which makes a change.
Im so happy me and this brolly met.


Its quite faded on the top, which kind of drew me to it. Underneath is bright red with snazzy ladybirds on it. I cant wait to get this to the beach and campsite!


My Mister found this canvas and leather tennis bag, its a rather useful object me thinks. It has attachments on the back for your racket. Im thinking to get some old Badminton rackets for it, as thats easier to play on sand.


Pehr LOVES her fishy, especially its tail.


...and head.


After that we stopped at an amazing vintage cafe (which we went last year when I was Uncle Dick with morning sickness!), we went mooching about shops like Labour and Wait (I bought some pencils and some string) and we also went to Atlantis to buy some materials for some forthcoming projects that I am getting really excited about! Blimey Im nackered now. Happy Easter Peeps!
