Well I can't go too long without buying pretties can I, would you like a little looky at what has made its pretty way home with me.
Right well, don't know whether you may go for this one or not, think it was the pretty rose detail that did it for me, and I could certainly imagine our pretty plates piled high with all sorts of yummy cakes and pastries being wheeled out for a little picnic in the garden. Actually has become the favourite toy of the moment for Mr. Poppins he loves it, as you can maybe see from the photograph, I couldn't get a decent photograph of the pretty vintage tea trolley without him holding on to it. He has certainly got his five pounds worth, was from the reclamation centre.
I had a lovely pretty surprise too from the very talented Dolly Dollop a little birthday treat, isn't it the prettiest little thing, a gorgeous dreamy bird catcher, thank you so much Claire, I love your pretty make, so very girly and cute.
Then it was a little browse at the CBooty, I found some lovely books, and was especially pleased to find a Girl Annual and Ladybird books. I now have all the What To Look For In series :)
I love the gorgeous artwork in the Girl Annual.
And love the things to do pages.
I also found a couple of lovely ones too.
Some yummy and very pretty glass candlesticks.
I couldn't resist a little Cara Staffordshire china posy brooch for 50p, a couple of teeny chips, but I am not fussy and you can't even really see them.
A delightful children's china tea set for £1.50, so, so sweet don't you think. Maybe wait for Master Poppins to reach adulthood before he can play with it ;)
They all have different little Nursery Rhymes on cups etc.
A beautiful silver photoframe for a pound, I think it was made for the Poppins Children to go in it :)
Mmmmm now a little scoot to the CSs :)
A couple of vintage, in perfect condition 1978 and 1964 Fuzzy Felt toys, Ohoooo how I love Fuzzy Felt, and certainly lovely to find beautiful vintage ones. A fantastic bargain at 75p
Mmmmm yes, you two little beauties are coming home with me :)
A beautiful silver embossed hand mirror for £2.40
Can you find the little Cherub.
So, some lovely thrifted pretties I hope there for you to browse at.
I do love shopping, especially for my daughters clothes. Considering I am an avid shopper it seems my daughter doesn't share my passion, infact I would say Miss. Poppins detests shopping. Like many children Miss. Poppin's would probably prefer to be getting dirty in fields and parks and doing what is in her eyes fun things. So I am the one who often chooses her clothes, though I do get told I always choose pretty not cool clothes for her.
Well as long as I am choosing and doing the buying, pretty they shall be. I don't know about you, but am finding many girls growing up too quickly, and if you have been following my blog for a while may know that even with Miss. Poppins, we have had concerns that physically she was growing up quicker than her peers. Luckily everything is fine, at 7 Miss. Poppins is my little girl and if I feel I want to dress her as one then so be it.
I am always surprised that in many shops, the children's range I love for my daughter only goes up to maybe a five. Am I so out of the ordinary to want to see my seven year old in pretty dresses and not rock chic hot pants. Anyway it was lovely to see a pretty range in George at Asda and I could find my daughters age range. So very, very Joules, they all co-ordinated and I practically bought a new wardrobe for her, do have a look if you shop there for your little girls. The daughter even gave it the thumbs up :) I purchased 2 cardigans, a lovely pretty checked frilly skirt, a gorgeous Joulesesqe top, and a coolish body warmer.
Two of my favourites.
The pretty detail on the top
I love some of the bargains you can get from the supermarket, look at these £2.00 CK esque shorts from Tesco, of course I couldn't resist.
Pretties that have been making their way to friend's homes are my Flutterby swap on the SC Cafe, I was sending my swap to The Balancing Kiwi and am so glad you like everything.
Being a flutterby swap I thought the vintage embroidered tray cloth was very butterfly looking. It was the lovely one on my last post that My Friend kindly gave me.
I hope you are finding some lovely pretties wherever you are, I love seeing what comes home with you all :)
