More finds.

Found some more treasures on my travels this week....love this old typewriter...saw on the gadget show that you can actually link them up to your computer and use them instead of a keyboard...how cool!!!!!!
This white flowery mirror....................

This Art Deco butlers mirror...they use to hang in the dining room and the butler would look in it to check if anyone needed anything instead of staring at everyone eating their dinner!!

Whats this?? Not another glass cake stand!!!!

I also found this lovely rose and poppy table cloth.......I think its a fifties design........

This little pepper pot is sooooo cute and even though its chipped and flaking wouldn't it look great in a little boys shabby chic bedroom......I tried so hard to find the salt pot to match but couldn't!!Grrrrrrr!!!!! It WAS going to be included in my November giveaway....BUT.....I am afraid its been nabbed by a friend who fell in love with it x

This beautiful woollen scarf goes great with my grey military jacket and is so soft and warm...

The next few things ARE going towards my November giveaway.............
This framed silk picture.............

This doggy head that hangs on the wall.....................

This wooden block...............

A beautiful little shabby tin.....small enough for sewing bits......

And last but not least... a small ring holder.

Look out in the beginning of November for everything I have selected for the giveaway...
Hope you all have a great weekend x
