Soon to be appearing....

Homespun is creeping up on us quickly now and I have started to get together lots of goodies for my stall. This time I am going to be selling mainly small pieces of furniture if I can get enough together in time and do them up. Saying that there will be other little treats like this gorgeous vintage pin cushion mouse and some fabric bundles.
A lucky find were these Welso doll house kitchen appliances, the fridge still has its cool boxes and milk bottles.

Also this toy german tin toy tea set with its pretty transfer print.


This truck would be great for giving teddies a ride.

A few of the jigsaws that will be coming along, there will be more from my collection joining them. I love wooden jigsaws, the farm one in the box at the back is a beauty with lots of animals that stand up so you can play with them and its in really thick wood so feels very substantial.

A great old hat box.

Dinky little plate wrack.

Not sure weather to repaint the green cupboard or just replace the stained paper on the front, it has sweet little china handles. The dresser I have had for a while but thought it was time to let it go, I need to make some new doors for the base. Its quite big for a toy one and great as a display.

Two toy cots in need of some bedding, I love the older one at the back you can lift the side up and down like a real one and its such a lovely colour, all original.

A group of little bits, my favourite being the hand painted 1930s toy bed on the left it is so sweet and I have just the right bit of vintage fabric to make some quilts for it. The little 1930s tea set is a lovely yellow, shame it has a couple of cups missing but the teapot is so lovely.
Well thats a few of the bits you will find with me at Homespun hope you will be able to come along to what will be a great day. Visit the blog to see who and what else will be there.
Thank you for all the birthday wishes.
And finally do look out as I feel a giveaway coming on so come back next time and see what you could win!

Nice to see your goodies Jane - I love the green cupboard and would be tempted not to paint it as the colour is so very pleasing. Thanks for following. Bye for now, Lesley
