More Cocktail Cabinet Goodies

Zebra teapot a present to Mr B when we lived in London, (ie years ago!), from The Tea Shop in Covent Garden.

Deers were a present from a school friend for my 11th, (possibly?), birthday.

Duck napkin rings. Amongst other things, we have a collection of 'duck' things.

Barney Rubble bookends.

Vintage 'poorly' dog. Pressie from Mr B because I love boxer dogs.

Vintage 'log' vase.

Vintage cat, another present from Mr B because I fell in love with a very expensive Watcombe cat in an antique shop in Plymouth.

The gold cherub is actually a candle! A golden seashell/starfish candle holder. A moulded glass shell, a present from a work colleague.

Having been together for coming up to 24 years, we have quite a large collection of Valentine 'stuff'! And tins!

Ceramic candle holder. A teeny-tiny teddy bear whose provenance I can't remember!! A really cute idea this little house. You look thru' a viewfinder, press the chimney and get about half-a-dozen views of Switzerland. I am not very well travelled, but I have been to Switzerland and one day I will go back!

Another duck. I {heart} ice hockey. Go Pluto! Go Pluto! Dancing girl, (Macca D's?).

A rubbish pic of bobbly things on the end of thick wires that fit into a metal base. Don't know what you'd call it, but I guess it is from the 50s and I have never seen another one.

My fabulous Mr Surfer. Way back in the 80s, (I think...God, my memory is getting worse!) we used to travel down to Newquay every Summer for the World Surfing Championships at Fistral Beach. When I was a Technical Librarian I had a young girl come and work on placement with me and this was what she made me as a 'thank you'. How amazing was that? I guess she must've enjoyed it!

Yep...more Valentines 'slush'!

A few snowglobes from another one of our collections!

A lot of you will know what Mr B's name is but I won't reveal it generally, but when he does The Nutcracker ballet at Christmas he tends to get given some 'casuals' to work with him. They have become known as A***s' Angels and I got this as a Christmas pressie for him as we both adore Betty Boop. How cute is this figurine?

So, a few more goodies recorded and only a third of the cabinet packed!!

Sorry, I have been probably noticeable by my absence on the 'comment' section of your blogs. Just not been 100% recently. Over-done it a bit and have had problems with my teeth which has now been referred to the hospital. I also now have the 4th different support worker in a year, which takes a bit of getting used to and I have found it all a bit unsettling.
I have a list of new followers to say 'hello' to, so please bear with me!
I hope to be more 'social' soon!
