Gorgeous 1940's glass
My journeys to and from school are taking me past a house which has been completely gutted and slowly been brung back to life. Outside there has been a skip which is being gradually filled with rubble, old carpets and the usual rubbish which comes out of a house renovation.
Only the other day I spied several vintage looking suitcases which had been piled on top... well my thrifty juices started flowing. I have always wanted a vintage suitcase for the top of my chest of drawers in the landing.
So on the way back from picking up Charlie from pre-school I had the opportunity for a good rummage. I opened one suitcase and inside wrapped in newspaper were 4 of these beautiful pixie glasses, what a find!
It is now filled with blue forget-me-knots from my garden and is pride of place on my mantelpiece.
