My Treasures

Went to the car boot sale today hopefully it's my last this season. There weren't many sellers and i wasn't expecting to see anything at all that i fancied. Surprisingly i think it was the best one.
 These are my gorgeous finds

Master T spotted these Roald Dahl books. A collection of 10 books and an extra one.
He is so into Roald Dahl at the moment thanks to his current teacher. All 11 books cost me 250pence

I also found these, a glass thingamajig which i havent decided what to put in it. It might end up in the bathroom filled with cotton buds or cotton wool balls and a cup and saucer to add to my mismatched collection.

Flower pot/ fruit bowl. A few years ago i bought my aunt a plant from Next as her birthday present.
When i went to visit her a few months later i saw this exact pot/bowl on her table filled with fruit and comment how beautiful it looked and how i wanted one. She then told me that it was the flower pot that came with the plant that i had bought her. I did'nt know that as i had ordered the plant over the phone so you can imagine how excited i was when i laid eyes on this little beauty. I am going to use it as a fruit bowl.
Cake stand

Wonderful recipe book

Spode teapot and my IKEA Orchid that i bought last year i am surprised it has survived this long.

Another look at my Spode teapot. It has the most beautiful blue lid i have ever seen.
Each item apart from the books and Teapot cost 50p. The teapot was a pound.

I bought these novels from a charity shop. The Alchemist Daughter, The Time Travellers Wife and Roald Dahl's 2 in 1 book Boy and Going Solo for Master T. I did say he loves Roald Dahl.
The books were 99p each

The complete cupcake kit and the breadmaker are from a previous bootsale both brand new and boxed.

What have you found on your treasure hunt? Hope it was all good stuff. 


  1. I have the Economy Gastronomy book- there's some great recipes in it!

  2. Ho funny - I was only thinking about the Economy Gastronomy programmes the other day. I loved that series - wonder if there's a way of watching them again? Didn't know they had a recipe book - I'll have to add that to my Xmas list!

    Great purchase with the Roald Dahl books.

    Thanks for linking up x

  3. I saw the Economy Gastronomy book at yesterday's carboot sale!You have found some fabulous things. It's strange how you end up finding lots when there aren't many stalls isn't it? It's happened to me more than once. You get that' Why did I bother' feeling when you arrive and then hit the jackpot!

  4. Loving the books and the cakestand

  5. Ooh pretty cake stand - and some good books too

  6. Loving the tea cup, glass thingamyjig and the tea pot, great finds. :)

  7. oh my goodness i LOVED that book, the time travellers wife. So much infact that I haven't watched the movie (incase its really bad!), even though Rachel McAdams is in it and shes my favorite actress.... Anyway nice finds and that book is beautiful, perfect for cosy autumn evenings with hot water bottles :) xx
