My Lucky Day

A friend was recently helping to clear a house and came upon some items he thought I'd like. The lady who owned the items was happy for me to make use of them, since they were either going to be thrown away or taken to a charity shop. I returned home from a shopping trip today to find several bin bags on the dining table. I thought all my Christmases had come at once! Here are a few of my favourites:
Suitcase lined in pretty blue and white

I love the yellow straw bag and beaded bag
A closer look at the earrings
More pearls and gorgeous costume jewellery (top of photo)

Delicate pearl necklace
Pearl bracelet (top of photo)

Beaded bag
Last but not least, placed carefully inside one of the handbag pockets was this locket. It contains the photo of an old gentleman and a pet dog. It brought a lump to my throat as it obviously had great meaning and sentimental value to the owner.
Locket with some treasured photos
There were also coats and jackets (which were a bit too big for me) and an assortment of other accessories. I am really lucky to have such a thoughtful friend - what a pal. I'll definitely make good use of most of the items he brought over and make sure the others go to a good home.


  1. This is wonderful. People can be so kind and thoughtful. I also love the locket complete with treasured photos. Too sweet for words! It brought tears to my eyes too! :-) xxx

  2. Thanks Louise! These items tell a real story. That's why I love them so much. Roy is really thoughtful to think of me too :) xx

  3. Wow! What a great gift that was you lucky thing! Especially loving the yellow wicker bag :)

  4. That one is my absolute fave too :)

  5. So many goodies. My eyes were all over the place. I am just loving those full length black gloves.

  6. Hello Alison,
