What the cat dragged in over the weekend

On my recent trip to London I bought an orange lamp (above) at Habitat. It was only £15 and I thought it would go well next to the tv in the living room. And it did. But on Saturday I went thrift shopping and found this:

Which goes even better. And was just £3.50! I just love the crafty feel to this one. It's a vintage West Germany ceramic item. The basic shade is new (from Åhlèns).

Here are some vintage cups I found at the same shop. The one on the left is by Staffordshire, England while the one to the right is by Stavangerflint.

My heart skipped a beat when I then saw this trivet... The graphics are just perfect. The material is a lightweight metal one with a cork underside.

I got lots of other stuff too, some of which I might put in a later post. All in all, it was a great weekend for vintage bargains for me.

Jessica, the shop is in a small place called Bagn in Norway.
