I called into my favourite shop in town on Saturday ... The Blue Door, and this caught my eye as I was leaving ... its a little jam spoon and such a pretty shape. Its silver and only a couple of quid ... its really sweet and delicate ... I think I need to have a cream tea now ;)
Yesterday we went to Eardisland Antiques Fair, it was in a big marquee ... a lot of the bits were pretty expensive but I did manage to find a couple of bits ...
... this beautiful Indian silver filigree spoon is probably not that old, but being a lacemaker and a silver smith it really appeals to me ... I love the flowers on the handle and the ripple on the leaf shape of the spoon bit ... it was marked as £18 and I got it for £16 ... probably not a total bargain, but I really love it and can't wait till I can hang it in my kichen (when I eventually get one again!)
... the other thing I got was a bargain and kinda follows my shopping theme ... LACE ... its a pretty old lace doily ... it was half price, so only £1.50 ... the label says early 1900's
being a lacemaker, I love looking at old work and although I love a bargain, its sad to think that the hours of work (an I mean hours) are now only worth a few quid.
I am very pleased with my pretty finds and buys :)
It was also fun looking at all the old samplers ...
... sorry about the reflection on the glass ... I was trying to take them subtly with my phone ;)
