Well it's been a while since
... but the wait was worth it!
I managed to score some fabulous winter threads.
A linen blend scarf and a hand knitted jumper.
A couple of flower presses...
... and two cotton crocheted doiles...
... a couple of cutie glass holders....
One - a sugar pot (minus lid) ...
... and the other and old glass Steadiflow
I've filled them both with
Geraldton Wax about to burst into bloom.
(from my garden too ♥)
It doesn't stop there!
A small retro honey/syrup pot
(I'm not much of a bright orange gal so I was
most pleased to find one of these in a neutral shade)
Hmmm... can anyone tell I'm a neutrals fanatic?
I think the bone colour of these doilies is just about my most
favourite shade/colour/hue (is it even a colour?)
In the whole wide world.
Colour does make an appearance though....
In these stunning book finds...
... as well as these badges (from the UK! Yay!)
I have an idea to use them on cushions I want to make
for our caravan. The caravan we don't yet own...
... but no doubt will... someday.
What do they say in that great film Field of Dreams?
"If you build it they will come"
So that's my stash peoples!
All for a song
All monies to charity
All unique and ...
(happy crazy silly dance)
Oh hang on... I almost forgot about these.....
Army issue - never been used - leather
Perfect for winter and for hacking about the bush...
... and acceptably "grungy" to wear with jeans.
Not bad eh?
So have you found any loveliness lately?
Weekend plans going well?
I am home alone due to Hubby scoring tickets
to the YOUI China VS Australia Basketball game.
So far I have done three loads of washing,
Drank two cups of tea
(I know! Only two? Must put the kettle on)
Ate two bits of ♥ cholokit ♥ - a bit with each cuppa :-)
Crocheted 3 rows of a granny square
(I'm teaching myself!)
and had ONE really tasty
Peanut Butter, Mulberry Jam and Pepita filled
sandwich on Burgen bread ♥
(the best bread you can buy)
Have a blessed one peoples!
PS - If anyone knows of the best websites/links that
"teach crochet" (to a self confessed wally) then please
do share... thanks!
