Let me start by saying that I'm going to somewhat buck the trend of talking about a certain event on the 29th April. Yes, it was lovely... yada yada yada but I'm actually sick of hearing about it now... However, I would love to have gone to a street party dressed up to the nines, but sadly travelling down to London on the friday wasn't really an option for me!
So instead I decided to go for a rummage yesterday to Brackley Antiques Cellar (my favourite haunt) and managed to pick up a stunning handbag for £32. It's genuine Crocodile and significantly larger than my current 'favourite' handbag.
Isn't she an absolute beauty? I love her so much!
I don't know if I've told you all how much I love charity shops, and this is another reason why:
This is another gorgeous piece I bought from Brackley. I fell in love with this cake stand as soon as I saw it. I just love roses. Roses are my favourite flower in the entire world, they're romantic, rich and symbolic. Not to mention that red is my favourite colour, so of course I have to have red roses all around me. I actually saw this a few months ago, but couldn't afford to buy it the first time I saw it. I thought to myself, 'if it's still there the next time I go, I'll grab it' - and that's exactly what happened. I knew I couldn't leave it behind again, so I paid £23 for a cakestand - bearing in mind, I don't bake cakes. It works perfectly as a jewellery stand.
You may also notice a rather cute looking 50's lucite brooch. I bought that yesterday, with the handbag! I was looking on ebay for one of these brooches but couldn't be bothered to wait for postage and lo and behold there was one sat attached to a piece of card with a rather large £14 price tag. I thought 'oh sod it, it's lovely' so I bought it! Ooops. It is lovely though.
