Loot

Here is the metal train sign (reproduction) and vintage buttons bought on our recent travels south. I gave the buttons a clean in some warm soapy water with an old toothbrush, just to give them back their old sparkle.

Suzie from Little Busy Bee showed us her 'Tea set for One' recently, that she received for her birthday. I mentioned that I had one in a similar style. So here it is Suzie. Hubby found it in the cupboard at his new office, left behind by the previous tenants (long gone), so he brought it home for me. It is pictured here on the sink in the carriage studio.
Cheers,
Sandi xx

This is a funny sign to have in your carriage.

The sign is perfect for your carriage. I can just see you sitting in there, having a nice cuppa with your Tea For One Set when you have a break from stitching. The buttons were a great find. I'm sure you'll put them to good use.
