lovely things

On the way home from college I popped into the charity shop and instantly fell in love with this gorgeous little tea cup.

I would have been happy with just that and the lovely cushion cover (in the wash, pic to come later) but then I stumbled across these two ...

Harmsworth's Household Encyclopedia, Vol's 4 & 5.
"A practical guide to all home crafts written by the leading experts of the day and containing upwards of 15,000 illustrations"

These books have everything - detailed instructions on how to fit a sash window, build a roof!, make a rocking horse, make a roll top desk. They even have patterns in them for everthing from a shower cap to a mans shirt. Can't wait to have a good read later.

All these for only 4 euro. Don't you just love charity shops!
