Dorian is our new baby African Pygmy Hedgehog! He’s settling in okay, we think – the cat is very very interested… thankfully he doesn’t seem to be an amazing hunter, that and I don’t think that any of his past ‘prey’ has been spiky! He’s very confused by the whole thing!
Lots of Love from Jack and Betty xxxx
aka Betty buy hideous rubbish! Jack and I really like to thrift, there are plenty of charity shops around where we live and it’s really great to see what you can find. I think it all started with my vintage tea cup collection, I was given a lot of them by my sister and I just kept on going – getting into charity shops to source out new tea cups led to other buys and now I like to shop around pretty regularly to find things to cheery up the place!
Here you can see (left to right) a vintage photo frame, with an old receipt that I found at work from a local drapers – a bit of an odd thing to frame, I know, but I really liked the typography. A Small Pot with a bird on it, I have no idea what this is for but I like birds a lot… as you can see from that rather odd ceramic peacock handbell. Then there’s Jack’s decanters which we are still too poor to buy liquor for, and a really rather odd deer figurine. I do have another deer (which I’ll photograph when I show you the bedroom) – this one’s strangely pearlescent and I couldn’t resist.
Jack’s pipe isn’t a charity shop buy, he is just genuinely that old fashioned.
Lots of Love from Betty xx
