Straight from Sunday Morning Pickings.....

It's been a long time since I've posted some fresh finds straight off the back of the morning of the day I'm posting. So I thought I'd share this mornings picks.

Bright and early we headed off for some early picking. As you probably know I'm no stranger to early starts but I could have done with a lie in this morning after attending a Rocky Horror Picture Show Singalong event for charity last night (more about that during the week). But everyone was chomping at the bit to get out of the house this morning.

It's a good thing I went with the flow because both Ben and I had success this morning with our finds. Ben has recently taken an interest in restoring old woodworking tools like chisels and planes, and he was on the look out for some pieces he could practice his restoring skills on. 


I'm rather pleased with my picks this morning with a this 1960's Bestoys Sandy Rocking Horse, even with its age and wear it's a charming piece. It's rare to find these old wooden Bestoys rockers that are completly ravaged by weather or have all the lovely painted pictures worn away. It's a perfect addition for a rustic vintage children's playroom or bedroom. Fraser and Sarah have already taken a liking to "Sandy", but she won't be staying with us will be listed or making it's way to our next fair.


For something else sweet from this morning what about Strawberry Shortcake? Not to eat! Just to appreciate. I picked up this 1980 Aladdin brand Lunch Box Pail it also came with a little Strawberry Shortcake picture frame and pillowcase. This little combination would have been sold in an instant at last weekends Collectorville Fair with many thirty somethings swooning over many of Holy Hobbie pieces with many of them asking about Strawberry Shortcake as well.

Have you been out this weekend picking up some treasures of your own?
