Toot keeps rollin'

Hello folks, a quick toot update before I head out into the world.PhotobucketThis week I secured a brilliant load of Pileas and the farm is growing out of control, so I'm going to hunt down a shop that will stock them for me (and meet my exacting standards). I have sold them on the stall before but all the lugging about and being put in boxes and left in cars many times a week isn't really fair on the little blighters.PhotobucketI also secured a new terrarium. Very nice.Photobucket PhotobucketAnd some handsome clogs, which had a secret surprise inside when I investigated them further . . . PhotobucketA nice old lens.Photobucketa tiny tin for gramophone needles.PhotobucketA tea caddy, which I like because it's got thick walls and is all lined out in tin - form a time when tea was still a bit precious.PhotobucketCake decorations, so sweet.PhotobucketSome nicely labelled threads. I had to leave them on the windowsill for a bit because they really stank of fags - bought from an old lady who obviously just loved sittin', sewin' and smokin'.Photobucket(Good name - Brenda)Photobucket PhotobucketA little bag, in the hippy style with pom-poms.PhotobucketEarly plastic bangles.PhotobucketThis brilliant rosette made from old Players packets is a small masterpiece.
Tobacco and cigarette related toot has a special name that I like . . . Smokiana. I like it because it's a rubbish word and quite clumsily constructed; like Kitchenalia. I can't think of any others, pelase let me know if you can.PhotobucketAnd here's one of those enamel candlesticks in a nice blue. I think these candlesticks are good because they hold candles but they also provide a handy tray for putting little bits of toot and floor treasure in - making you feel alright about indulging in a little magpie behaviour. PhotobucketVictorian toilet pulls, what fine designs. When I bought them the chap on the stall said to me 'they've got all the instructions with em' still' which I thought was quite a good joke.PhotobucketAnd lastly a painting of a lady. I had to buy this painting because it came with a story so brilliant it blew my mind. You shall come to hear it in good time.
I'd also like to let you know that Toot is on Facebook and Twitter and now Instagram (I'm called tootasinfoot). You should come follow because different stuff happens over there. Also, tell your friends and family.
Thanks.
Jo.

  4. The little mushrooms look like the kind of thing Swedes use to decorate their "adventsljustake", a candle holder with four candles to count down the time to Christmas. It's usually filled with moss and decorated with little mushrooms. It looks like this: http://swaussie.se/images/2010/advent_118718070.gif. PS. Found your blog a little while ago and I'm in awe of your toot expertise, have really enjoyed reading through lots of old posts!!

  5. An adventsljustake looks a sweet thing. Funnily enough Karen bagsied the mushrooms for her christmas tree - I hadn't really made the Christmas connection with them.
    So nice to have you here Alex - and I see you're a boaty person! So nice!

  10. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
