Recent vintage buys and some things you can't buy..

I haven't bought too much lately; although not through lack of choice as we now live near the fantastic antiques town of Horncastle (well worth a visit if you are in the area).  A couple of things I did pick up:

Some lovely silvery vintage baubles - I love it when they are a bit peely!

Improving children's book, inscribed 1885

Lovely green utility jug (what is it with me and jugs??)

2 small glass cups; I think they would be great for a drop of mulled wine this Christmas.

And here are a couple of things I couldn't buy:

Winter sunrise this morning:

And some fellow Lincolnshire residents.  These are grey seal pups born on the beach at Donna Nook at this time of year.  They are absolutely gorgeous.
