Great finds and a new book

Hi all
found some great items yesterday at my favourite junk shop, "the Attic" I try not to visit here to much as I always come away with something, its one of those shops that has everything and its jumbled up so you have to really look, I always come away with something I did not know I needed till I saw it, you do that or is it just me?
anyway on to the finds, there are a lot of pictures for you to see,
The first lot of pictures is from a great book called "Dolls for the Princesses"
this is about 2 dolls called "France and Marianne" these were gifts for Princess Elizabeth and Princess Margaret, they were presented to King George V in 1924, from France, the dolls are beautiful and came complete with the finest of clothes and accessories , they are I think on display at Windsor castle along side Queen Marys dolls house, ( I have that book as well)
this book cost me £2.50 and is such a bargain, I would of paid much more for it,
now I will let the pictures speak for themselves, grab a coffee and enjoy.


























the other finds are some crocheted doily's , these I will use as maybe bedding, tablecloths,depends were they take me,
One I very carefully cut up and this gave me loads ,
so having had such a great day yesterday, today is my Pyjamas day, I sit and watch the reruns of Dallas all morning.
hope you enjoy the pictures
