... this is the first thing I will buy. How gorgeous - but as we've just had to spend a ridiculous amount on the car (£350 for new tyres and brakes - ouch!) I suppose it will just have to go to the bottom of my list. It's a beautiful thing and would make my constant whingeing about how impossible it is to listen to Radio 5 Live on Medium Wave, disappear overnight - are you listening Woody? Even so, its a whopping amount to spend on a radio (£200) isn't it, however beautiful, even if it is in my most favourite CK pattern but I am a pauper and must accept this.
So I will have to satisfy my cravings with buying other people's Christmas presents from her lovely catalogue and hoping my numbers come up. I'm really trying hard to not spend at the moment but being frugal isn't really in my make -up. I haven't got a lot to spend and I don't really spend much but it would be better if I didn't spend anything at all. I was very good here on Sunday, the Chatsworth House shops. I often lose my head in here when the Christmas stock is in but I bought just one thing this year, a lovely large wire-work heart to slot cards in for display which is just perfect for my collection of vintage christmas cards.
It was a lovely misty autumn day and the trees across the estate look fabulous
in their autumn clothes.
I got a couple of lovely things in the post this week, a pretty embroidered brooch and a vintage candlestick to add to my little collection (pictures over the weekend hopefully). The lovely Jennifer at Buttercup and Roses has started a similar collection which looks just beautiful and is a real inspiration for my teeny version. If only there were flea markets in my neck of the woods! Looking forward to the weekend and fingers crossed we may get a moving date next week -
I'm so bored of waiting!
