And then there's my hair. It's half way down my back. I hadn't really noticed because it's always up. I've not been good at looking after myself. I've let things slip these past 12 months, and it's definitely time for some emergency repairs! So a busy week ahead...
The house has probably fared better, and looking around, I'm more than a little happy with the many secondhand bits and bobs I've found this year (though do wonder whether there'd be quite so many if I hadn't discovered Magpie Monday...) My husband's seen most of them on the blog, so no major surprises in store, and no equivalent of a vintage camper van in the garage. Like last time.
Anyway I thought as I've nothing new, I'd share my most exciting, spectacularly unexpected, best ever car boot buy...
Limed oak hand carved doors. FOUR of them! A tenner each. Couldn't believe it when I saw them propped up against a van. They looked so magnificent and completely out of place. The guy selling the doors was a builder and said the they'd come from a house he'd been working on. Luckily he also agreed to drop them off for me.
They are beautiful.
Each one is different, with intricate patterns of birds and flowers.
They've become my wardrobe doors, because unbelievably they were a perfect fit. Well three of them were. Such a result.
So now on the very rare occasion I'm wavering about going to a car boot or any secondhand sale, I think about my doors...because you just never know, do you?
Have you got an all time favourite find, or is it too hard to choose? Plenty of totally fabulous secondhand treasures to rummage through over at Liz's magic Magpie Monday.
