Some new buys…

I have a new camera! I got myself a D90 yesterday to replace my tired old Fuji S5, but I can’t photograph it as I used it to take these pictures!

Last week I saw this outside a junk shop and had to buy it! It’s a Jones Sewing Machine and iron leg table, made in the UK and later bought out by Brother. I think it’s circa 1930s, but if you know more than me please let me know! It even had the old instruction manual and haberdashery bits. I have the wooden cover too and the key to lock it! I’ve started to sand it down as I plan to varnish it as it looks like lovely natural wood underneath the harsh black paint!

I bought this fabric deer head from a guy I saw at a craft fair. He sold the one I wanted before I had the money to pay for it, so I since ordered it custom and picked it up on Wednesday. Isn’t it fab?

Both look great in my new office!
