Two gloves on their way to Do the Green Thing where orphaned gloves (and T-shirts) find a new life.

There is a story behind this treasury but it involves the theft of a mole!

Charity shop tuesday

Spotted this lovely butter dish in a charity shop last week, and i really like the pattern on the side made me think of chickens or castles,or cameras but since i would just need to buy butter to put in it and in the spirit of being good i decided against it.

However a few days later as i was passing the same shop with a friend who suggested that it did not have to be used as a butter dish and since it was still there...
My latest trinket box.
What about you any great charity shop Tuesday finds?
