What a lovely work box, I have a couple similar and you have made me think about doing them up!I love the willow pattern thing - lovely x
Gorgeous book, knew those blocks would look good..
Gorgeous finds, my hubby would love to know if the illuminated scripture text book is for sale please?? You find some gorgeous things.Jo xx
Hi, Jo - yes, happy to sell the book - but it is in poor condition. The back has come off completely and many pages have the ?oil stain. I'll pop to your blog / see if I can email you.... Abby x
Hi AbbyMy email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Andy is a collector and loves illuminated manuscript books just for the work that goes into them. He doesn't mind the condition. Speak soon.Jo xx
Whenever I read your blog, it always makes me want to collECT things. But I never do, because I'm such a terrible thrower-away of stuff and completely ruthless.
Like Fran, you inspire me to collect too. That book is wonderful! xxx
Great items.....where to start your little booth is going to be a hit and hard to keep stocked with such wonderful items...you have an eye!!
hiya- I had one of those cloths once, and was told it was to go over the top of a pudding basin whilst steaming.Don't know if thats correct, but I rather liked the thought of it!Love the building blockshave a great weekendxx
What a fabulous book even though it is damaged and yes I have painted one of those baskets before....never again....too bloomin' fiddly!Julie x
I have a dark wood box I'm going to do something with, but not paint :)the little cloth is lovely are you going to frame it ?cate x
Great finds ... :0)Shirl x
I think the willow plate would be great with some embroidery embellishing parts of the pattern and then framed...
When I saw your linen cloth I imagined it over a steamed suet puddding - as ted and bunny has mentioned. Lovely sewing box and book:)
You do dind some lovely things! xx
should say "find" xxx
Fantastic finds, I love these kinds of books. And the cup is beautiful, too. Tiziana
Happy Valentines Day to My Lovely Bloggy Sweetheart! Love Annie ♥*:•.♥
A hankie?Love the old sewing box,Nina x
Just came over to wish you a happy Valentine's Day my friend. oxxoxo
ooh that book is a treasure. The linen not sure but is it the willow pattern ?Painting the sewing box does look fiddly & time consuming !
Yes, the linen has a willow pattern on it. I doubt it's a hankie - too coarse. I like the idea of it being a pudding basin top! Forgot to ask mother-in-law at the weekend - must ask her next week. Finished paiting the sewing box now - it looks much better - labour of love though!
Look at all that gorgeous stuff! Yes, I think pudding basin top is the right way to go.I love that sewing box and am very impressed that you took on painting it!
