This Week's Finds

Our small town has a tiny church charity shop which is only open a few hours over 2 days a week
I found  a couple of treasures this week

a double strand of mid century pearls for my costume jewellery collection for $9

I couldn't believe my eyes when I spotted a stack of 4 antique bowls for $2 each
They are James Kent  " La Rosa" and we had only been looking at a James Kent display in an antique shop the week before and now sit with my collection of roses china

It is a very small shop ...a crowd is more than one person!

It's a brisk walk uphill and past the town park

The autumn weather is gorgeous at the moment and the garden is slowly losing its flowers and leaves

First frost

Left over bread and butter pudding

One of the last roses destined to be dried
