Tip toe, through the tulips...


Trash & Treasure...three of my favourite words.

That's where I found this lovely ukulele this week...isn't it cute?



I love it's sweet handmade cover. It's missing a string but otherwise is in great condition.

Another T & T find was this 70's photo cube. We had one, back then, with all our family in it, looking...well..very 1970's.

How cool is this old checkers box?


Beautiful wooden checkers.


And gorgeous illustrations.


When I was in Trentham on Wednesday I found this adorable vintage dolls dress.


It fits Sunday's doll, Emily, perffectly.

And has the sweetest detail.
Did you find some treasures this week? To see more pop over and visit Sophie xo

Those checkers and the box they are in are so beautiful. Lucky you. I had one of those photo cubes in the 70's and thanks to my mother who is a great hoarder we still have it!
