Well I am very sorry gals for not writing much this week…I have had rather of alot on my plate and I seem no nearer to getting it all done!…I bet you know the feeling eh!. I was pottering around in my kitchen earlier, listening to the radio, when they start talking about how busy the supermarkets were…like Christmas they said!…its so busy out there…I thought to myself gosh here we go again! rush rush, hurry rush! for goodness sake the stores will only be shut for one day!, I mean its not like we are all going to starve or anything!…
Right I had better get on with this blog as there are rather of a lot of photo’s…so lets start to explain!…These are my Bootsale finds that I managed to pick up last week…Now let me start by saying that I am on a very tight budget at the moment, but I seam to be finding the most wonderful and cheap things, and I do not have to travel that far from my front door…which saves on my petrol! Oh gosh I hope I havn’t sabotaged my good luck now!!!
Right the first picture…is of a bathmat that I found at 11o’clock in the morning for £1.00 (yes all those people that must of walked past it!!! shame on you!!). It was a tad dirty – but after a few washes, it came up like new and looks fantastic in our Bathroom. The eggcups were £1.00 for 3 with 2 cosy’s but one of them was orange…and as you know I do not ‘DO’ orange…so I have only displayed the colours that I like.
The picture was £1.00, the flag £2.00 and the necklace 50p.
…And this divine teapot with no lid was 50p…just look at that repair!
I managed to get the red shoes, which are brand new, I might add! for £1.00 (the second pair up from the bottom!)
Oh and the bargain of the day apart from the union jack mouse mat for 50p, was this gorgeous embroidery……an absolute snip at only 20p!!!!! I couldn’t believe my ears, when the lady said the price!
I also got hold of a job lot of badges..for which Rosie and I sorted them all out and covered this large white cushion with them, Thankyou Max! for kindly sitting in front of it!!!!
Our garden is doing well too…we have an abundance of flowers shooting up, and I have been out there most days…or rather I should say, when the sun has been shining!
We are trying to decide what this tree could be? I have looked in books and wondered if it might be a walnut tree!…Any ideas?
I bought some bird seed in the week and we made these DIY seed holders and hung them up around the garden. They seem to be working well too, as they are nearly empty!.
Below is where we have a little robins nest…they are so sweet and you can hear them all chirping, as Mother goes back and forth finding food and twigs for her babies.
I thought I would end my little post by adding some pretty postcards here for you. I have scanned them into the computer from my own personal collection.
My son Daz, will be coming home from Uni at the weekend….complete with a barrell load of washing I suspect!! Hubby said I should send him to the launderette with a pocket full of change and pick him up a few hours later…actually thats not such a bad idea! LOL! …can you imagine his face!!! hehehe!
We are having family over to us this easter, which will be nice as I love family get togethers….there are not many of us, just my Mum and her partner and hubby’s Mum and Dad and the kids and us!…I hope the weather is nice…it makes such a difference, dont you think!
Anyway I hope you all have a wonderful Easter, Don’t go too mad! remember the shops are only shut for 1 day!!! I’ll be back after the weekend with some interesting news about how my weekend went and plenty of holiday pictures 🙂
Have a great weekend gals..Love Happy x
