Busy Sunday.....

We had a great day yesterday, firstly Alex and i went off to one of the local car boot sales and came away with some great bargain, a few items of clothing and two great bargains for my soon to be Victorian themed bed room!
let me tell you how it came about.....
we took our jakey off to the seaside last Sunday and while there visited a very crammed antique shop and bought a new bed frame, it is a black and gold metal bed frame in a Victorian style, my bedroom is in great need of a decorate and as i love anything Victorian i decided that this is the way to go with the bedroom, starting with the bed, i am going to make throws, bolsters and cushions, the walls are going to be just a plane colour and i am going to bring in the colour with the fabrics, while at the carboot i found a brand new pair of curtains, fully lined and just the perfect colourways, in deep red, browns and gold,£4
i then found a piece of fabric about 2m again perfect for the victorian theme,
deep reds, brown and green, perfect for some cushions and maybe to cover a foot stool and blanket box i have!£3
we then went off to pick the bed frame up and have a better look around the antique shop
(we couldnt with jake and his little fingers last week)
and this is what i came away with.....
i am now on the lookout for a victorian wash stand or dressing table, a fireplace, and lots of little bits a pieces, an oil lamp, more fabrics etc etc, this is so going to be fun lol
