Dragon Pottery in Rhayader in Wales. I think the Veg Artist would like this? Three Euros.
Two bird and nests cushions for one Euros each..
I also picked up 6 CD albums for 30 Cents each. Not a bad mornings shopping.
The sea from Bundoran sea front. Cape Daisies like the ones in our rusty milk churns here in West Cork. Two Wedgewood trinket boxes. Antiqu...
More northsider magpie moments.ReplyDelete
Hope you enjoy your latest treasures 🙂
Some of us can never stop collecting JayCee. Perhaps they will feature us on one of those Hoarder programmes?😊ReplyDelete
I've said it before and I say it again, I so miss my carboots.ReplyDelete
Great finds Dave. I hope to hear that soon you will visit Portugal again.ReplyDelete
I know Briony. You never know what you will find.ReplyDelete
Thanks Rachel. I think we could all do with a sun holiday especially Portugal.ReplyDelete
Dave, I don't have a 'Welsh' thing in my house!! Very young children dress up in costume on St Davids Day, but I only remember wearing a daffodil on St David's Day.ReplyDelete
Around here, the hats live on in the stories of the 'invasion' of Fishguard, when in 1797 the French (who had been aiming for Bristol
) looked up from the sea and saw huge 'men' on the cliffs. A local woman, Jemima Nicholas, helped with the capture of the French troops who surrendered two days later. She is still commemorated in Fishguard, and there is an Invasion Tapestry stitched by local people.
There's a good summary and some photos of the tapestry here:
Over at shadows and light, Steve had his apple sauce face pot. I truly had never seen one before catching sight of yours, and spent a while reading about them. To have another one pop up on the same day really was an interesting coincidence.ReplyDelete
Six CD's? Let me guess - Bucks Fizz, The Bay City Rollers, Jim Reeves, Gary Glitter, Des O'Connor and Mr Blobby.ReplyDelete
Great story the veg artist. Jemima was a true heroine. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Thanks Debby. I will have a look. Something else to collect now?ReplyDelete
Nope YP. A double pop CD, The Corrs, KT Tunstall, Christy Moore and two Easy Listening CDS. All good stuff to listen to in the car.ReplyDelete
More treasures . How nice to wander and buy at leisure . And have a few mince pies waiting at home?ReplyDelete
Hi Linda. We saw a plane taking off into the sky the other night and then we saw the mince pies and the carboot sale. It really seems like things are getting back to normal. Hope so anyway.ReplyDelete
Catching up after many weeks away due to bereavement.ReplyDelete
But not abad haul indeed - I especially like the mug, and know Rhayader well.
Thanks for your comment Mark. Sorry to read about your bereavement. Glad you like the mug.ReplyDelete
