A couple of nicely bound Somerset Maugham novels - I have never read any of his work but recently Melissa gave them the big thumbs up so when I found these I figured it was the Universe giving me a gentle shove to broaden my literary horizons.
These gorgeous coasters have never been used - the images are fantastic! They look like they could become mini book covers to me. Or maybe cards - I am sure I will find a use for them!
I love this saucepan - it is so brightly coloured and has a beaut,retro pattern. It was brand new ( I have put it to work several times already!) - not a ding or a scratch on the enamel inside or out. It has a wonderfully heavy base and a stainless steel lid. It has "SILIT" stamped on the handle and when I googled the name I found out that these are rather expensive pots (not quite Le Crueset but close!) although I couldn't find this pattern so I am guessing it is out of production now. All that aside, this pot is also the perfect size for me now that my nest is gradually emptying!
All in all my fossicking was fruitful and therapeutic - a good break from the intensity with which I have been hitting the studio. (that last bit is for your benefit Kath-oh-whip-cracker!)
To see what others have found in their foraging this week pop on over to Sophies.
