I have been really lucky on ebay recently and managed to win a few 'vintage' pieces for the house while not paying a small fortune. This morning a parcel arrived for me which I was really excited about! Not sure you will be though!!

A vintage washboard!

I love it and it seems to be the right shade of duck egg blue to match my other accessories. By the way the laundry tin is actually full of dog food!

What do you think?


  1. I love it! your display looks great :)

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  2. i love it too and what a fluke that the washboard is duck egg cos normally they are mucky off white....perfect little display!!

  3. Oooh nice....you have got me on the hunt for the apothocary bottles now too...I have loads of reproduction ones in my downstairs loo..one arrived today and it's a gorgeous amber colour...

  8. Hi Susan, so happy to have come across your blog. Love your ebay finds, wish I could do this more (but living away from home in the UK) makes postage so high. The duck egg blue is gorgeous! Catherine x
