flea market finds

My 8 year old stepdaughter was over the moon with her $1 porcelain doll find in the Vinnies toy sale this week. I thought I'd spare you the pain of a full frontal as let's face it, porcelain dolls are so fu..reaky and I'm convinced they all turn into Chucky at midnight.
I really don't need any more mugs but I just can't help myself. It's a mini fetish. And when you drink up to 8 cups of tea a day (this is number 4) you need a selection otherwise you are forever washing up and that is something I really loathe to do.
So I went and bought myself this Royal Albert 'Charlotte' Mug for a couple of dollars. It holds exactly the amount of tea I need in one sitting and is also the perfect thickness for sipping so all in all, a good buy!

Pop over to Sophies for more finds and a very exciting giveaway!...


  1. great finds..loving the mug :))

  2. $1 doll - that is an amazing find. I am with you though, and think they can be a bit freaky!! Love your mug - nothing beats a cuppa tea, and a sneaky biscuit ;)

  3. Ooooo spot on about those dolls, fu-reaky love it ;) Have a lovely week.

  4. Where did you find the royal albert? Lucky girl. xxx

  5. oh my god! even my young adult son has got that chuckie nightmare hanging over 'im. i think he watched it at too early a stage in his life.
    now, remember talking tina? up the same alley!!
    i understand this cuppa love too. it looks gorgeous, and just right!

  6. I would not be able to resist this mug either!
