  2. I wish I had as much luck in charity shop rummaging as you do - that pencil box is absolutely beautiful! It reminded me of one of the Maisie the Cat stories, I think she was given one for school :)

  5. Ruthie I drool over your blog on a constant basis and cannot wait for your shop to open up and see what you and your Mom are offering.

    I hope that your friend is doing well, it is a very bitter pill we take.

    Love Renee xoxo

  16. My travels used to take me past the dalton pottery frequenty (you wouldn't think it was en route to anywhere). I knew they did mugs - but teapots, now that's tempting.

    That pencil case looks quite a bargin :)
