The other day, on a trip to sunny Norfolk to visit my parents, I happened to be up unusually early for me walking the dog. I love car boot sales but am not easily persuaded out of bed to get to them. However as I was already dressed I popped in and came away with some little lovelies.

These vintage thread spools which are in such yummy colours and named so evocatively. Those four colours are a very inspiring palate.

A handful of vintage cutlery for 10 pence an item. I mean when has anything ever been 10 pence! The stall holder said these were his best seller.

And these two cute cats which I can’t wait to put into a still life and capture those faces!
