It's been a whole week since my last post. I did intend to post about my car boot finds the same evening as we went to the boot sale, but on my return I recieved a telephone call from my boss with the news that I am being made redundant from the end of December - a casualty of the local authority cuts.
As you can imagine I have been wandering round in a bit of a state of shock and disbelief, but I am coming to terms with the reality of it all now. I am trying to stay positive, the local authority have assured me that they will make every attempt to find me alternative employment, but this is in no way guaranteed. I have decided that I just need to:
So with this in mind and a promise that I will remain positive, I am finally posting my car boot finds.
A pretty vintage Royal Staffordshire bowl with violets on it 30p, a Grindley England small oval plate with a windmill & tulips at the top, a sailing boat on the right and a fishing scene on the left also 30p, and a pretty little leaf shaped dish and mint sauce boat £1.50. I've been hankering after one of these "mint sauce" boats for ages - as you do!
A pewter tankard with decorative celtic bands around it. This is to replace my hubbie's old celtic tankard which lost it's bottom recently! at only £2 a positive bargain as it didn't look at all used. A box of pastry forks in a lovely art deco design and in a pretty art deco style box £1. A lovely decorative glass sugar shaker £1.
Last but not least two remnants of fabric each about 1.5m, for only £1each. I have plans to utilise these for some Christmas pressie makes.
At least the first part of that day had a positive outcome, now to practice some positive thinking!
