magpie monday :: a morning at the carboot

While we were on holiday last month, we went to the market/carboot that they hold on Sunday mornings and I was thrilled to find myself a couple of treasures!

I have a bit of a cross collection on my bedroom wall so was thrilled to find this ... it is so beautifully carved. It cost £5, which I thought wasn't bad for such a delicate piece.

Here it is with my other crosses ...

The other little treasure that I picked up was a wooden elephant! Ever since I was a small girl, I have loved elephants and collected them. When I was 21, one of my favourite presents was a box full of 21 elephants!! This lovely one is such a lovely colour and he just jumped out at me. It has been a long long time since I have bought an elephant, but I am really loving this fella!

He was only 50p!

What pre-loved bargains have you found this month?


I love reading your comments ... thank you xx
