Sunshine and shades

18 Jun

Oh, please don’t let the June gloom continue until the weekend. Create Vintage is off to Tweseldown Artisan Market again on Saturday, and I’m so hoping the sun will shine.

At the last market, in May, it was a couple of my sunny coloured finds that were snapped up straight away.

This Barker Bros. primrose yellow jug went to a new home where it was destined to serve custard for-ever-more {a fitting purpose if you ask me}…

And these glorious green storage canisters were parcelled up and packed off to spruce up someone’s new kitchen. I love how even the mundane becomes magnificent when it’s just the right shade of vintage…

I’ll be digging out more of my lovely vintage treasures for this weekend.

I’ve also been working on some more pictures to put up for sale. The vintage framed tobacco cards {previously mentioned on here} have been such a hit in the shop*, that I’ve created some more using the same series of British birds, and also a new pair with these pretty Brooke Bond tea butterfly cards.

Do pop along on Saturday if you can. Umbrellas optional, sunny dispositions essential!

    I’m very keen on that jug, which is something I can’t say about custard 🙂
