Tewkesbury Abbey and recent thrifty finds

A lovely sunny day and the view across to the Abbey.

I lvoed that the garden walled seem to be made up of bits of surplus abbey!

I got this mustard bag on Wednesday thinking it might go nicely with my new teal dress, and then on Friday I came across these faith shoes for only £5, both from charity shops! They are a perfect match.

I got this kodak disc camera and film (one film already in the camera with a few photos already taken!) at a car boot for £2. I am not sure if anywhere locally develops the film but I will give it a go!

This is an old light meter I picked up from London camera exchange for £2, they always have something different in their odds and ends bin.

Finally I picked up these sugar tongs for 75p in a charity shop. After going to Well walk tea room I really wanted some so that I could do something similar at home. Here is how it looked!

I also managed to pick up a smaller sugar bowl but that is currently with my dad who is giving it a mat finish to match everything else. Have you found anything recently?


  1. I remember those disc cameras, I had one. I wonder what happened to it.

  2. Hi!

    Thanks for the badge spool idea! Just back from newly discovered charity shop -trawl- huge mustard glass vase, couple plates, piece carltonware & a bowl. x

  3. Hello Faye
    I am very sorry but I refuse to look at your tearoom post...I just can't put up with the drooling anymore!

    I used to have one of those cameras I thought they were the tops...can't remember what happened to it )-:
    You've been busy busy the shoes ...very elegant!

    keep well
