Weekly Finds

Firstly a bit of housekeeping......I don't know where the time goes. By the time I get home from work, have dinner, get the kids in bed around 8:30pm, I am too tired to write any posts, or comment for that matter. I do, however, read all your posts even if I do not comment at that time, but I always try to catch up later, sorry to those I have missed.

Did I mention that we have a granny flat (and four sheds)? Most of my treasures end up in there. I have a work area set up for craft and pretty things, and my selling items are all sorted in another room. I do have lots of collections in the house but not everything otherwise it would look like an episode of Hoarders!

Found this week:

Le Rosarium, Made in France

Small children's hutch, maybe 40's - 50's

Vintage Circus/Clown jigsaw for the Misters collection

A closeup of the English countryside jigsaw. Why do they always write or place a sticker on the pictures?

This feather filled eiderdown is VERY dirty. Have you washed a feather eiderdown before? I am going to give it a go.
I have plans for these, stay tuned!

Thank you Kylie for the lovely parcel waiting on our doorstep this week.
So close to the weekend, and its a free one for use, so off to the movies we go. We are going to see Ghost Rider, The Spirit of Vengence, can't wait!  Hope you enjoy yours, Tam x

p.s I have turned the word verification off as they are getting ridiculously long and annoying! Although it may come back if I get too much spam.

Tam, I am in love with that little hutch, what a treasure!
I am really glad you got rid of the verification thingo, what a pain in the bum! I haven't had one for ages and I'm yet to receive any spam. Hope this is the same for you x

I love that hutch and the Le Rosarium! Yay for no more verfication I've had one or two spam in almost a year. xxxx

The Cloth Shed said...

Washing eiderdowns is possible in the washing machine...obviously checking that there are no holes or rips before you start. Select a 40 degree wash cycle with detergent but don't use a fabric softener, the feathers don't like it!
Drying is the pain. I usually put the clumped up eiderdown on the washing line initially, pulling the feathers apart in their pockets of fabric. Then transfer into the heat of the house for a good few days enabling the feathers to dry out. You can then finish in a tumble dryer for a final fluff.
Hope that helps,
Julie x

I am intrigued to know what your plans are for the small toys. Thank you for turning off word verification. They are becoming very odd in nature.

I hope you have a good weekend

P.S Children's hutch - is that for the children or their pets? :)

Miss Simmonds Says said...

I found something similar to the hutch is a skip, it's french and full of toy food!
I love that jigsaw! why do they stick the stickers in such stupid places?
I used to have that exact boy pope thingy!

Hi Tam, thank you for stopping by and leaving such a lovely comment it was a hard post to write that one and made me a little uncomfortable but i had such an over whelming amount of support that it really helped in many ways. Great finds you have found loving the childrens hutch and i was tying to spy the 50's glass cabinet that is was resting on ;-) Enjoy the rest of your week, dee x
