thrifty delights


my heart skipped a beat when i spied this box
in my favourite charity shop earlier this week
!


ooh a little red riding hood option



yeah!

an absolutely perfect pedigree patch doll!

*******
next thrifty find was a
a truely fantastic coat
shame i'm too "rounded" for it!

i'm thinking this is rather steam-punky


and could be made more so with a change of buttons
and maybe some victorian black lace added


*******
last but not least
a very sweet vintage Sindy



she has seen better days to be honest
has been to a rather scissor happy hairdresser
and has nibbled feet and a snapped knee



but she's very pretty
and i'm guessing she was a ballerina Sindy
as she is elastic strung


*******

some excellent finds this week
what did you thrift this week?

That coat is amazing and does look Steampunk-ish! Love thrifty buys, looks like you got some great items there! x

Wow what great finds! I love love love that Patch doll - fabulous. I got some Enid Blyton hardbacks this week - but sadly for my little boy, not me.. :( (altho' I might take a peek).
