A Bit More Rootin' Tootin' Car Bootin'!

I just had to share a few of my finds today, just look at this cheeky fellow!
And then I found more records for my collection, there was Lloyd Cole, Matt Bianco and Suzanne Vega to name but a few of my Eighties heroes!
Lloyd kindly agreed to model a couple of the brooches I picked up too.
(Mighty fine you look too, if you don't mind me saying Mr Cole).
Work it Lloydsy, work it...
Was rather pleased with this little beauty too.
Happy days!
Hope this weekend brought you treasures- a- plenty too!

A Painting Re- Painted!

For a few weeks now this painting has niggled me.
There was something wrong.
She didn't look happy in her little world.
I grabbed my brush and gave her a new dress.
I think it may be finished.
I'll wait and see if she's happy now.

Just A Little Cornish Meandering..

Not many words tonight.
Term time is upon us and my poor brain is not quite back in gear,(no worries though, it'll be running on full capacity by Christmas!)
So I thought a little pootle in the Cornish sunshine might perk me up a bit!
Want to come along?
And breathe...

Red Button Hare...

Here's a little cheery fellow to brighten up your 'big coat'.
(Tis almost the time to be getting out the 'big coat' from the back of the wardrobe isn't it!)
He's made from a scrap of vintage quilt and scrips of this and that.
All part of my Hope and Elvis preparations.
Hope you like!

Steckfensters? Don't Mind If I Do!

Steckfensters must be one of the coolest, craziest shops in Cornwall and I love it!
Where else could you buy a Dalek and a garden gnome?
Enough said, I'll let the pictures do the talking...
Hope you enjoyed your little mooch around this amazing place!
Did you buy 'owt?

Rootin' Tootin' Car Bootin'!

A toad stool pin cushion!
I had to get this satchel because it's nearly 'going back to college' time
because it had the writing inside!
Hope you've found some good car booty this weekend x

How Do You Scoff Yours?

We've just returned from the most lovely holiday in Cornwall.
On the last day, as is family tradition, we had to check that all the essential tasks had been done.
Fish and chips?
Check. (On several occasions!)
Ice cream from Jelberts.
Cream tea.
Cream tea?
Cream tea!
So off we jaunted across the causeway to St Michael's Mount.
Now, my Mum ate hers like this:

But I ate mine like this:

And Middie ate hers like this!

A Happy Hare!

Here's another hare wall hanging and this one is a playful fellow!
He's part of my Hope And Elvis workshop preparations.
Hope he reminds you of sunnier days!

Sorry, This Is A Tad Obscure...

Now I am really hoping that you're with me on this one.
I wasn't going to blog about this because it might be a bit embarrassing.
But anyways, here goes.
Can you fall in love with a paper bag?

What A Dolly Deal!

One Dolly Parton and four Johnny Cash LPs for £2.50!
And the Dolly LP had a gate fold cover!
(All I need is a record player now!)
