Treasure hunt

This week Rosie and I have been on a treasure hunt
to Matlock in Derbyshire.
We went in search of a large old book for
Rosie who is off back to Northampton Uni on Sunday.
No such book was to be found but I did manage to pick
up a few treasures while searching.

Rosie found this wonderful childrens blackboard.
I could just see Daisy Moons opening hours written on it.

For a long time I have been searching for a large frame
to play with. I have a few ideas up my sleeve for this beauty.
I will blog later on this ones update.

I can never resist an old Beatrix Potter book or two either!

Then I found this beauty, a little late perhaps
or very early but either way it had to come home with me.

I love books that have hand written messages inside.

The front and back inside covers are just beautiful.

As are the illustrations.

The last purchase of the day was this super soft woollen blanket
in rose pink. I am going to edge it in eiderdown fabric and
use it to snuggle in while watching the tv.

Enjoy the rest of the evening.
Love Daisy xxx


  1. We did have a wonderful day didn't we! And yes, you did find some nice little treasures like the cup and saucer you bought as you would have been a fool not to! At least I came home with what we were looking for ... Oh Wait!!! :) xxx

  2. Some lovely little treasres there! The Christmas Carol book looks gorgeous. I am a bit of a sucker when it comes to old books. Pam x
