Things that need a new home

I've been having a clear out and wondered if anyone would be interested in the following items. I might list them on ebay but can't decide if anyone would actually want them, please can you leave a comment if you think i should (or shouldn't) or if you are interested please get in touch as I'd like nothing more than to skip the ebay part!

Firstly, some fantastic blue retro fabric, it was curtains so i suppose they could still be used as curtains if anyone wanted as they are still lined. One measures 82" wide x54" long. i love this fabric but just don't have any use for it.

Then i have a selection of four buckles. Two are wooden and two are metal.

This collection of buttons that are gold and silver coloured. There are 6 anchor buttons included in this selection if anyone is currently on the nautical theme.

Does anyone use these Royal Air force buttons anymore?A whole collection i believe.

Finally a selection (420g) of various buttons that need a new home.

Ceramics on

Thought it was time i shared a few folksy finds with you. I've picked four of my favourite ceramicists who have wonderfully stocked shops on

I love this beautiful singular butterfly pinned to an olive green background by Julia Davey of White Elephant.
You can see this and lots more in Julia's shop on

This Pondlife mini dish by Prince Design UK is stunning. This little bowl was inspired by floating leaves on a pond, carried by currents and collecting in corners. Each organic stamp was imprinted by hand into the soft clay, and later glazed with a watery blue glaze.

I like the simplicity of this Speckled Pink Pouring Bowl by Penny Spooner Ceramics. See more hand built and thrown potter at Penny's shop on folksy.

This porcelain pendant by Sea Urchin has holes filled with green glass and a touch of gold lustre on it. I've see Sea Urchins pendants in so many places on the Internet lately, they are truly amazing. See more at Sea Urchin's shop on folksy.
