Yesterday's finds

Yesterday's finds! Two week ago, I saw this typewritter  and i  am really happy to have got it. Don't look at the dust! i did not take time to clean it before taking the picture.
It is a rather small one . I feel as if i was a  detective  in  Aghata Christie's novels , Miss Marple!!!
I red most of her detective stories and got all the films with Miss Marple but also the famous Hercule poirot!
I also found this little wooden toys
A vintage shawl on the market
two weeks ago, i found the tea pot, mug which goes with my cake stand and I saw the cups and saucers.
This shop is quite an affordable one and i am glad i found it.Next time I will look for old (affordable) vintage jewellery.

Tu ne le croiras pas ... mais j'ai appris à taper sur une machine qui ressemble à la tienne !
C'était au milieu des années 60 ... c'était hier, si près, si loin !!!
Belle semaine

Hello Catherine! I'm sorry it's been so long since I've visited your blog...we're still working hard on the bathroom and the house is a disaster! I LOVE all the treasures you found...I used to have a typewriter similar to yours only mine was a bit taller. I love how they look and yours is beautiful! Those wooden toys are so cute...they suit your home and the teapot and accessories is beautiful! I love the old fashioned roses...they look like David Austin roses. That shop you discovered sounds like a place I'd love too..wish we had something like that here. I hope you are having a nice sunny day...we have freezing drizzle today and snow predicted for tomorrow...I guess spring isn't quite here yet. I just hope the cold doesn't kill my lilac buds :(
Take care my friend.
Maura :)

Hello Catherine ! Jolie machine à écrire et petits jouets en bois, mais je craque complètement pour ta théière et les mugs... est-ce que ... si j'osais...tu ne pourrais pas te charger de faire une course ou deux pour moi dans cette boutique ? Je paierai les frais de port et tout.... contacte-moi si tu penses que c'est possible !
Un gros bisou !
PS : Es-tu bien remise de ta chute dans l'escalier ?

Oh my goodness. I just recently purchased a 1930's Royal typewriter myself. I can't wait to have it in my possession. Congratulations to you on yours. :) <3, new follower

I love your tea set with the roses, is beautiful!
And I like your typewriter, would you like to write a book like Agathe Christie?
I love her books too, Miss Marple is one of my favourite personage!
Hugs to you!

Love your blog...I have added you to my list. I have been looking for a typewritter..really takes you back to simpler times. They have so many great uses.
