The husband picked up this beautiful copy of Larkrise to Candleford, the cover just says English country gardens, Edwardian children playing croquet on the lawn, cream teas and messing about on the river. Surprisingly (I normally will watch any period drama because it's period drama) I never got on with the BBC series but I am intrigued by the novel, so this is what I'll be reading next.
It was the husband actually that spotted this beautiful Vintage wooden pram in the British Red Cross shop. It has seen better days with quite a lot of knocks, cracks and faded paint but it's all the more special because of it's past. I wonder if it belonged to one of those Edwardian children? I know my imagination is running away with itself. Anyway I've cleaned it up and it now holds Matilda's extensive collection of cuddly toys in her room. It's a beautiful piece and one which I hope remains in our family for a long time yet. All in all, I felt pretty satisfied with our purchases, the best charity shop finds we've discovered in quite a while.
