I really liked The Book Hive bookshop in Norwich, which I left a few pounds lighter. There were some gems to be found in the charity shops too. Then Quinns Bookshop in Harborough today provided me with the perfect birthday present for a small aquaintance of mine.
One of these books isn't for me: can you guess which?!
Also found in a charity shop was this adorable teacup and saucer for only £1. I might use for supping tea with my little finger sticking out, or I might make a teacup candle out of it.
I have been searching for the right herb planter and tray for my kitchen windowsill. My joy in stumbling across this cream enamel one in a shop in Harborough today was slightly disproportionate. But it matches my kitchen perfectly and, more importantly, fits the narrow windowsill.
Finally I bought a clematis from the market which is now happily climbing my previously empty trellis. Bizarrely, the hybrid shares a - fairly unusual - name with one of my teaching colleagues.
