Oooo I just HAVE to have one...

I really REALLY reAllYYYYY want a vintage eiderdown...seriously though how expensive are they...
???I'm feeling all nostalgic and christmassy today.....Oooo tooo many things to lust after... Theres an 'ooober' blog/website I peruse from time to time, and this person has a stack of eiderdowns.... Not fair!!
I did get a little Christmas Treat for me today...just a second hand book from Amazon when I did this thing, where I'm buying presents..and then just add a present for me to the shopping basket...(do you do that?) To be honest most of the things I buy myself are second hand, I'm really thifty...and have to watch my limited pennies.. any hoo.. sorry for the waffle, I will get to the point. A second hand ex Library book of The Children of Green Knowe arrived to day (I have a massive thing about ex Library books..) and its
 beautiful, to top it off it still had the library stamp.. and ...It smells of school...from back in the day..!
Well I'm off for some more ebay window shopping!!
Love Sam xx

Nostalgic Christmas TV...

The Children of Green Knowe series was shown back in 1986...It ran for a few weeks up until Christmas...
Its  a gentle, and sometimes scary Ghost Story, about a lonely little boy called Tolly, who goes to stay with his long lost Grandmother.. and its set at Christmas!!
Its a crime that this isn't available to buy on DVD (Dear BBC, please sort this out!!), however you can watch it in segments on You Tube..phew, and here is the LINK.
On his first night staying at 'Green Knowe', he discovers a little mouse by his bed, that belonged to
a previous resident...(I won't give any more away)
Here is the original illustration from the book....
...and here is the replica you can buy from the house that Lucy Boston wrote the stories about..
Image from another Blogger...
The actual house is called The Manor at Hemingford Grey  I would love to visit it one day, it must be just like being in the books!
I'm gonna have to get me Tollys Mouse time for Christmas!!
I can feel a nostalgic Christmas Telly theme coming on :0)
Happy Tuesday bloggers!
Sam xx go on...when you have a quiet 20 an episode, you won't be disappointed!

I have loved Stefanie since I was about 7 years old...I have always imagined that Jonathan and Jennifer Hart are my 'other' parents..fighting crime, drinking champagne and driving fast cars abroad somewhere...Oh dear I'm gonna be hooked!!..
I'm also really annoyed with my self for missing my vintage Dooney and Bourke bag on ebay..I think it went for £11.00...oooo I could kick myself!! Still I'm am still on a mission to get one, I will keep looking, in actual fact I'm have decided to start collecting Vintage Leather heres to the beginning of a bargin hunt!
And just one final thought of the day...can it really be only 6 weeks this weekend til Christmas? How is that possible...You might have to check out some of the 'oooober' blogger I'm feeling a christmas panic coming on!
