i'se just arrived ...

That's the title of my latest Mabel Lucie Attwell postcard purchase - 1922 Boo Boos!



I've been having a bit of a spend-up on ebay!

I won this beautifully made basket interwoven with plastic ribbon. It's not vintage, but made for the original owner in 1980 by a blind friend.



I also won three lovely handpainted Dartmouth Pottery Seagull sideplates. I've been wanting some of this design for ages.

I've two more purchases waiting to be picked up from my local sorting office.

I'll show you next time.

This post is making me grin. For one, I am a bit of a collector, and was on ebay quite often there for awhile.

Also, I love your phrase, "having a bit of a spend-up". It reminds me of the British TV series my husband and I watched with Judy Dench in it. I'm not remembering the name of it. Oh, is it, "As Time Goes By"?

Well, you did get some nice things with your "spend-up".
