The top one even still has its labels. 100% Rayon made in West Germany. It is crisp and bright and the reds are so lovely they make me overlook the orange.
This is a better pic of Lotties new blanket. I am hoping it is wool but it is satin bound and I can't be bothered unpicking it to do a burn test. Whatever it is made of, I love it! It is covered in birds and flowers, is so lovely and soft, and it combines pink and red which is one of my favourite colour combinations. I love it so much I even used it to pretty up my blog.
And we never go thrifting without bringing home some books. It helps that all children's books are only 20c. I restrained myself and only chose two. The dress up one is a hoot with lovely illustrations and easy ideas. It will be a great rainy day book when we are stuck inside playing dress-ups and cubbies.
And this Debbie series is by one of my favourite illustrators, Marcel Marlier, so it had to come home too. I have almost the whole Debbie series now, so it gives me such a little happy rush to bring home another one in almost perfect condition. I was struck by this picture especially. It seems to capture the pose so beautifully. And something about way she is sitting reminds me of Lottie.
