so we did.. and most of it was the usual woodshed gubbins..lots of tools and books on woodwork and johnny mathis albums!!
but there was a few things that i spied with my beady eye... and these things came home with me!!
first off this sweet little teacup..no saucer with it but its fine for popping a little tealight in..to pretty to go in the bin dont you think!
these lovely pink glass dishes.. the colour on the picture looks almost orange but they are a lovely light pink and i think would be perfect for a gorgeous pud covered in cream!!!
then this sweet little yellow floral tea set.. a girl can never have enough ( i know i say that about most things ...but it is true!)
and then whilst we were clearing out the shed i could see something at the back which looked suspiciously like a mirror to me, now his grandad didn't say anything about it so i assumed it was for keeps, so our car was packed to the rafters honestly the man is more of a hoarder than me it was great!!.. we were stood in the shed door just having a little chat when he pointed to the mirror and said how he'd had it for years..was going to give it a bit of tlc but had never got round to it.. and now he was just going to take it to the skip... well i nearly fell over when he said that.. "I'll take it!!" i said .. the words were out of my mouth before i knew it!!.
i couldn't believe he was going to skip it i mean why would you!!???
so i got myself an antique dressing table mirror !!
now the hubby has said he thinks the glass needs replacing but i sort of like the mottled effect it has that vintage feel to it now... my sister says it looks like something out of "The portrait of Dorian Gray!".. i feel it is a bit phantom of the opera'sh .. i am resisting the urge to paint it for now because i know how slapdash i am with a paintbrush and i think i could actually go to jail for crimes against antique furniture if i was to wreak this!!!
so remember the story "cold comfort farm " and the little old lady keeps saying "theres something in the woodshed!" this time she was right!
