My little buddy Lucas gave this to me a few years ago at Chester Frost. I'm not sure how I've kept up with such a small thing for so long, but it's as treasured as the little guy that gave it to me is 😍😘 #treasures #kidgifts #straightfromhisheart
From as young as I remember I have been a collector, from Care Bears, my little ponies to now vintage bits ‘n’ bobs and tattoos. My first proper collection from age 8 was antique teddy bears (you can now find most of my collection in each of my children’s rooms). I love a good rummage in a charity shop, vintage fair and most Saturdays I can be found walking through Deal market (with my family in tow) searching for another treasure to add to my ever growing collection.
My favourite items are often, what I call the ‘unloved’ pieces. Other people just walk by and ignore them as they may have a tear, a crack, been glued back together or on my soft toys a missing eye. But to me that proves they were someones treasures...they were once loved and admired, long forgotten. That is until they became part of a collection once more.
I believe in collecting things that you connect with, I care that they have a history often I wonder who owned it first? What journey has it taken? Oh the stories they could tell. They are my treasures now. #vintage #vintageinterior #collection #collector #treasures #thingswithhistory #vintageofinstagram #vintageoftheday #blogger #lifestyleblogger #dealkent #oldandnew #neverforgotten #neverforget #international #interiors #mixandmatch #mended #onceloved

My Friday nights have certainly changed...for the best. 💙👩👦👦💙
More Domaine de la Salle treasures. These papers are the requisition documents of Domaine de la Salle during World War 2. So many interesting documents uncovered during the clean up. No doubt we will enjoy many Winter’s evenings reading and sorting through these historical documents.
