In a unusual move, I ended up going shopping during my lunch hour yesterday. Mainly to get away from my computer screen and e-mail but really to get some fresh air. I had no intention of purchasing anything, but I ended up popping into the local Oxfam Bookshop and I picked up a couple of items I found.
These old black and white postcards I discovered these after flicking through a box full of random postcards. Two of them feature places I have visited and the others I just liked the pictures. The two postcards of Harlech Castle, a holiday destination when I was very young, I want to frame together and hang in the house.
I have also been hunting for old maps for a while, but nothing has really taken my fancy. I am searching for a couple of old maps that have significance to me or my husband so I can frame them to create bespoke wall art for our house (an idea I picked out of Thrifty Chic: Interior Style on a Shoestring by Liz Bauwens and Alexandra Campbell).
These weren’t exactly what I was looking for, but I was taken by the map’s illustrated cover especially for the Sutton & Epsom map as I work in Epsom.
