Positively the LAST hat. This one's for a penpal.
Car booty from this morning. It was only £2 as damaged, but someone had loved it well enough to get a tinker to put some tin strapping around it so it could still be used. I'd do the same I think, it's lovely and will soon be hanging on a beam here.
A beautiful quality Ridgeway jug showing Tam-o-Shanter with the Witch grabbing his horse by the tail! HERE'S A LINK to the original poems by Robert Burns. You will all know a line from the poem I am sure: "But pleasures are like poppies spread, you seize the flower, its bloom is shed."
Close up of the Ridgeway stamp on the bottom, and the very precise date of 1st Octber 1835.
Well, I couldn't leave these behind could I? The first 4 I got for £1 - not each, they were just 25p each! and the little leather-covered gilt-edged-paged copy of Coleridge's Christabel and Other Poems was £2 and will be a stocking filler for eldest daughter, along with The Coming of Arthur.
