I'm a 1661 woman - sixteen from behind, sixty one from the front! I'm of the baby boom generation. Loved the fab sixties - which I experienced in London - I was a flower child - thought love would change the world - brought my children up in the country - back in London for the 2nd summer of love in the eighties - danced all night again - wonderful! Now in Devon looking forward to the adventure of old age - bring it on! hahaha

show and tell

Hi Sweeties

My day today went like this - I met up with Donna, Jasmine, Alfie and Elizabeth but could only spend a brief time with them before I had to go home to do some of my college work. I have loads of writing to get done and the deadline is getting closer and closer.

Then I got so engrossed in my writing that I forgot to watch Antiques Road Show and forgot to prepare my Sunday dinner. When I realised, it was too late to get it done - I'd have had to have eaten at about 10pm - well now, in fact. So I ended up having fish and chips :o{

So, to cheer myself up, I packed my books away and grabbed my camera. I took lots of photos of my charity shop and boot sale treasures. I'm going to show and tell four of them. They are four of my table lamps - I have many more. The pic showing a bright orange base was a boot fair find but I bought the shade from Habitat. I must say that a huge proportion of my favourite finds were pointed out to me by Dons. She can spot a treasure from a mile away!

Maybe I'll put some more kitsch things up for you another time?

Oooh.. lovely!
I love the lampstand on your 'coffee' table and the fruit bowl...
...and the picture (fabric perhaps) on the wall...
...and almost anything orange!

I took my last post down, but you managed to leave me a comment before I did that! (I can't stand all that self-pity malarky for long!)

Glad it was you that found it!

Trac - it's nice that you can share how you are feeling with others - it didn't read like self-pity to me :o}

Betty - it's great how we're all keeping RW's blog going for her while she's away - hee hee
