Well, what a shock to the system yesterday was - back to school, back to work, early morning etc.. With the boys being ill over the holidays we've barely made it over the front door, so yesterday was hard-going. Today however was a different story as Thursday is my day off! I had a pretty perfect morning- A quick run and piping hot shower, followed by a rake around the local charity shops and then lunch and a catch up with my friend, Mrs G. The afternoon was taken up with a bit of cleaning and re-organisation of our sadly neglected bedroom (why oh why does our bedroom always turn into the main dumping area of the house? so much for it being a restful sanctuary!)
The biggest laugh of the day was the half-price sale at my local thrift shop - did you spot my new perfectly formed enamel teapot in the above photo - 25p!!!!! Look at the lovely yellowness of it!! It's going to be perfect for the caravan! But wait, that's not all!! feast your eyes on my other bargains!
A lovely set of six side plates - 25p..
A sweet little brown lamp -£1.00. With the right shade, this is going be look perfect on my dressing table..
cute little cream jug - 25p
A book for Mr Northern Hi-lights - 5p
And finally, a bundle of vintage wooden coat hangers - 50p! I am particularly excited about these as I can see a bit of crochet potential. last summer I made some crochet covers for a couple of similar coat hangers and was really pleased with the result - since then however I haven't been able to find any more - until now of course!! Nothing like a successful trip to the charity shop to get the old heart pumping and the creative juices flowing!
