You’ve got mail...

I’m the most disorganised person at the best of times, so as you can imagine I am forever misplacing my correspondence! It was when I spotted this letter rack at the car boot I knew instantly it would be a helpful addition.

I soon imagined up a simple transformation for it. A lick or two of my favourite duck egg blue and here we have a home for all my keepsake letters and mementoes...

I love receiving handwritten letters, quirky postcards and lovely mail, it really does amaze me how thoughtful people are.

And even better my new letter rack cost just 50p!

I’m late, I’m late for a very important date

First and foremost I really do hope I haven’t disappointed anybody, I hope this is the start of a new chapter for me. My blog has always been a place for sharing the things that inspire me and connecting with those of you that do too. Finding time is my biggest problem at the moment, but this is a hobby I vow not to give up on.

With car boot season now in full swing and the discovery of a new one it has of course meant quite a spree in recent weeks. Oh my the joy of second-hand shopping!

My new love:

A Litton Imperial typewriter. Pretty much love at first sight and one of those things I’ve simply dreamt of owning for years. This will not go unloved or unused.

A vanity mirror that cost so little [10p to be exact] and has to be a favourite find of recent times. There will always be room for such beauty in my home.

Ghostbusters 1984 jigsaw puzzle, for pure nostalgic value. Complete with all the pieces, though I did quiver when it came to piecing the final few together.

I can hardly deny the fact my obsession with books has only grown, somewhat more, but that doesn’t seem to matter.

Various finds, including 1971 Twinkle annual, and The Ladybird book of Fairytales was simply irresistible for a girl caught up in fiction.

I dropped on two lots of Beatrix Potter books recently, it seems I am finally getting there with the titles I haven’t got and I know it’s only a matter of time before my collection is complete, just the way I had imagined.

As one collection draws to an end, maybe the start of a new one. Though it’s these older and somewhat tatty versions of the Mr Men classics that I find all the more intriguing.

p.s I’ve missed you.
