mr. toad wins modelling contract..

I went charity shopping.
I can't decide if I like the term "thrifting" more..
Anyway, I went and bought some second hand things and then put them on mr toad.

sterling silver, 50p


£3.50, real leather
there's a lovely "I S" inscription on the front- Any suggestions for what this stands for?
I'm thinking...
Isabella Slightly.


it's a bit broken, but i shall fix it (:

£1 again!

then dear Toady threw a diva hissy fit and insisted that the camera be taken away from him.

£1! it's really cheap and horrible metal, but..i like cheap and horrible (:

I also bought some lovely fabric for £1.50. It has birds and twigs on it (an underlying theme..?)
There are two pieces, one measuring 140x120 cms, the other 140x58 cms.
I can't actually sew yet, but I'm taking a course in June, so...maybe it will become a badly made skirt, or dress (:

they match!

they sit in bushes!

I like our rabbit stopping gate.
sadly my rabbit got eaten by a cat.

sorry...yet another picture heavy blog. the pictures aren't that great- i got a new lens and i'm getting used to it still...

Some great finds. I love birds and twigs too. Mr. Toady is so charming in those top photos. Such a shame he threw that hissy fit.
