Not created but found

Hi I don't have anything creative to share today although I have a couple (ok more than a couple) of projects on the go that aren't quite finished - but soon. So instead I thought I'd share some of my recent finds.
My heart skipped a beat when I saw this 1978 Horsea mug
And I had to have this owl when I spotted him at Deal market.
(When we bought our current house the bathroom suite was this colour!)
I've been longing for a pair of clogs for ages and while these aren't quite what I was looking for I was more than happy to give these Scholl clogs a home.
A Chance Glass like cake stand and some very orange De Luxe Shu-maid shoe shapers. The lady in the shop commented that they were a very good colour match although I don't think I'll be using them at the same time.
And lastly a knitting pattern and bias binding. This haul also included some very vintage seam binding but it's already in use as I've used it on some recent cards.

If you would like to see more vintage finds pay Vix a visit at Vintage Vixen she really is the Queen of all things vintage.

I like the mitten knitting pattern - just the kind of mittens my mum would have been adding a string to so i didn't lose them!

Great finds Amanda! I love the mug and the shoes reminded me of my youth :)

And I love that cake-stand! A super haul ... and I remember bias-binding just like that. Sigh!

The Horsea mug is lovely.
I have to admit to not buying sandals yet or bearing my toes to the world as it's been so wet here. Will the Scholls be your new fav after the demise of the Birkenstocks?
