a little bit of second hand (and a birthday)




The fun and satisfaction that comes from finding goodies at a second hand store so surpasses that of going to the shopping centres, don't you think? On (and for) my birthday recently I picked up these cup set, a frame and this wonderful lamp stand with tea resting place . The cups are a bit small when it comes to needing a comforting tea but with friends and a continuing supply from a large pot they would do very well. The lampstand I love but didn't buy when I first saw it but somehow it ended up next to the lounge on my b'day morning (Thankyou honey!).
I had a very special b'day thanks to all my specials. I enjoyed myself so much I didn't get many photos but here are a few sweet memories.
