An Afternoon In Town



I live in a fairly small town. Where far too many of the locals look like this. I am not local.

Have been out for coffee and some thrifting with the boyfriend (who is not local either). I didn't get round to posting up any pics last time I got a haul, and findings have been scarce the last couple of weeks. So I absolutely had to buy, and immediately show you, this nursery rhyme pillow case.


Humpty Dumpty seems to be depicted as some sort of failed glue-sniffer. Or that could be my cunningly-on-purpose-honestly sideways photo technique. This is definitely going on ebay; perhaps it could be cut up into individual framed scenes, or become a cushion in a "traditional" nursery room.

Obviousy I then started to get a bit pattern-crazy, as I found this "almost retro" gem in poundland.



I've already tried out the marker pen, to remind us to use up the strawberries we got the other day, not because I was writing random Damned cd titles...




And this belt. 75p! Which I'm keeping, in a must-accessorise-more bid to remember to look into a full-length mirror more often before leaving the house.




The Fabulous Colin And Justin were on 60 Minute Makeover today. Cracking shots of them don't you think?

Hi Lizzie - lol! I'm sure you don't - and seriously, this IS what some of the locals look like here. I don't think they met many people apart from their own relatives until a generation or so ago ;)
That pillowcase is begging for a good home isn't it. Will have to sell it before I start finding it too cute to part with.

Lizzie, I tried leaving a comment sympathising with your floor plight... but blogger's being devious again/ash particles in the server and it wouldn't post the comment; so in case you pop back here and read this - I hope it all gets sorted, you definitely have to get rid of Shiny Floor, and I hope whatever happens Saturday night is still fun! x
