On Saturday I did a bit of charity shopping in a neighbouring town - Beaconsfield, which is rather posh. Unfortunately all the charity shops are wise to what they get so there aren't many bargains and not many fat people giving away their stuff either.
However I did manage to pick up these two lovely Victorian figures, both Staffordshire ware I think for £1 and £2 respectively.
They both have very typical Victorian features, I'd love to know more about them
They look great in their new home alongside Queen Vic
I finally got round to putting some pictures up including the ones that Vix sent me recently
My wall is made of granite or something, we had to abandon the smaller pictures as the nails just kept bending! The bottom pics are attached with blu-tac!
Now to the main event!
Lisa and I went to Basildon Manor in Berkshire, a National Trust place we thought we'd visit, now we're members. It was a gorgeous day, so warm and sunny, I didn't even wear tights!
This lovely place was featured in the latest film version of Pride and Prejudice, which we all know wasn't as good as the 1995 Colin Firth/Jennifer Ehle TV series.
We were peckish so headed to the tearoom first, it had this amazing Indian jungle temple mural
Sunglasses - H&M
Necklace - charity shop
Dress - ebay
Bag - National Trust Shop
Shoes- Charity shop
It's a glorious building and looked amazing in the sunshine
No photos of the inside as we're not allowed, though I did sneak one or two of the shell room to show Mike...
Outside frolicking in the garden....
We met some lovely ladies
And found a 1950s parlour
tutty bye! xxxx
