Car Boot Sale Vintage Haul #2

Vintage Enid Blyton Collection

Friday morning was one where all you want to do is call in sick and roll over back to bed. Instead I decided to drag myself into the office and request an afternoons holiday. At 12.30pm I happily skipped out of work with the whole afternoon ahead of me. On my way home I stopped to do a little thrifting - here's what I found
Later that evening my SIL and I went to see Coraline
It was a great film if not a little scary in parts (or maybe we're both big babies!!). We both said how peaceful it seemed and described it like reading a book . Let me know what you thought if you've seen it
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend

  2. Wonderful finds! I really wish I could shop for old stuff... we don't really have thrift shops around where I live and not even charity shops :( weird, isn't it?

    Lovely blog design by the way! :)

  3. Lovely! I like the NY music too - so evocative...

  4. We've just got back from watching Coraline with our 2 boys and thought it was absolutely fab, and yes quite scary! Great animation though.
    Lovely purchases you have there.x

  5. Sounds like a perfect afternoon to me! Nice little things you picked up thrifting! Have a great weekend!

  6. Can't believe what you said about Coraline!...its EXACTLY what my son and I said about it; like reading a book...there was silence around the pictures and it allowed you to think about it...
    lovely new blog home too...
