Ok then I promised pictures of my Charity shop goodies so here goes.
Price = either 20p or 50p each
Lots of lovely books. Some have some very retro patterns in, in fact there is a pattern for crochet clothes for a dolly. I remember my gran used to make them for my dollys when I was little. Shame I didn't like dollys but I appreciated (even then) all the work she did.
Price = £3A double duvet cover that I will using for the material not as a duvet. Isn't it pretty?
Price = £2
A Pyrex casserole dish, Mother will be pleased as everytime she visits she moans I don't have enough dishes.
Price = £1
I don't know what it is about this bowl, maybe it's merely its simplicity. But I had to have it. Don't you think it looks good on my coffee table full of fruit?
Now I feel I have to explain this next one. I am nor have ever been a girly kind of girl. My profile picture is me messing about with hats in Primark with the small people...you won't usually see me like that :) Anyway I'm not sure what was going on with me yesterday. It could have been the excitement at finding so many pretty things, maybe in my old age my feminity is starting to kick in. Who knows but tell me honestly is it not pretty?
Price = £5 for the 16 piece set
I've looked on line but can't seem to find this pattern, lots similar but not this one.
And there is still more...
Price = £1.50Again with the flower thing? Maybe I'm hormonal.
This next one is now sitting on my kitchen window sill nursing my poorly peace lily (hopefully) back to life.
Price = 90p
That's a 2p piece on the table next to it to hopefully show you how huge it is.
And finally I totally fell in love with this. For some reason it makes me think of a chicken. No..my friend didn't understand that one either. But it is lovely.
And there you go. All my goodies. I hope I didn't keep you waiting too long ;)
Today I went to our local indoor play centre with my friend and her 16 month old son. He had my climbing all the way up to the big slide (ok I did offer) but it's not just a simple case of walking up some stairs. Oh no!!.. it's one of those that is on different levels and its like a maze. And of course you have to take your shoes off but HAVE to keep your socks on so while you're climbing up a ramp (bearing in mind by the second time my wee pal had decided it was far easier if I carried him) your slipping back down due to your socks. Anyway needless to say he fell asleep in his pram on the walk back and me and his Mum decided we were going to go sit on our respective sofas and chill. So thanks blogging all this has kept me awake and now my youngest small person has just come through the door and is now rooting around in the kitchen looking for something to eat. So best go make sure she's finding something suitable. Oh and I better for sort out the spare room, my Mother arrives tomorrow for a 3 weeks stay and him indoors didn't put all the Xmas boxes away properly so if I don't she'll have no floor space. ;)
