Souvenirs from the Thrift Shop - at silly prices
I got up late so I missed the snow which fell overnight. I found out it had snowed by reading Facebook messages - and also from my friend Lilian when I met her in the village this afternoon. Seems as though there wasn't much snow here but my brother who lives on higher ground had a lot more. I have added a photo in my Extras. Even though there was no snow when I went out it was bitterly cold with a strong wind. It seems as though we have had a short Autumn and Winter has arrived early.
When I got back from the village I listened to the match on the radio. Newcastle were playing away at Southampton. The score was 0 - 0 - so at least Newcastle got a point. The match was so boring that I fell asleep way before the end.
I have added a couple of photos of my niece in my Extras - all dressed up as Poison Ivy and ready to go to a Halloween party. She looks stunning - but personally I'm not a fan of the tattoos or the piercings.
I was short of inspiration for a blip shot so I gathered together the items I bought at the Church Thrift shop when I was in Hanover last week. I bought a cute collectors teddy bear, a small jug made in England by T G Green ( I think this dates from 1930's - 1950's ), a small towel with an Autumn leaves pattern, an embroidered linen napkin, a triangular brooch and a pair of earrings. Here's the silly element .......... some of the items cost $1 and some were 50 cents - real bargains - however when I took them to the ladies at the till they charged me half price for everything. I think I got " mates rates " as I was with Betsey - and everyone working there and everyone shopping there knew Betsey. Funny thing was when Betsey took her purchase ( a lovely antique footstool ) to the till she was charged full price!. Thanks to admirer for hosting Silly Saturday.
