I have just been informed by the lovely Liz of Betty Jo Designs over at the Lino Forest blog that I (yes that's right ME, not you) am the incredibly lucky winner of one of these delightful little paper dolly brooches.

Meet Hoot, my daughter Ada's second best friend and one member of our wee owl collection. Hoot was made by British Toy designer Kristin Baybars in the late 60's under the 'Ostrobogolous Toys' brand for Kalpatch Ltd and was featured in the British Design 1969 Journal. He's had a bit of repair work done and I've had to re-attach his wings once or twice but he still looks pretty good for a lad in his Forties no?

How cute is this little fella! He's actually a brass money box so he should come in handy. I'm going to be posting a few vintage owl's over the coming day's, Between us Ada and I seem to have developed a wee collection (easy to do with owls).
I've also got a couple of easy upholstery diy's to post so keep a look out!

Cuppa and a biscuit, looks nice doesn't it? I bet it would have tasted nice too if I'd had a chance to drink it ... ah kids who'd have em?
The coffee pot and posy vase are both recent oppy finds. The vase is by Pates an iconic Australian pottery manufacturer and the coffee pot is made in Poland and stamped on the base. Enamelware pot's like this one are getting so much harder to find these day's, I feel like I've struck gold whenever I find one!
