Todays bootsale beauties!

Todays bootsale beauties...
Even though we had to get up extra early due to the silly clocks, it was lovely and sunny and we had a great mooch round, i was really pleased with everything i got. In the photo above you can see a couple of things i bought for the girls room, the little pink wire heart is for them to put their little cards and photos on and the wooden shelf thingy will be painted white ready for their little tresures to be added to it.

Dont you just LOVE the red spotty enamel tin?! I wont bore you with prices for everything but i didnt pay more than two pounds for an item and that was for the redoute rose print which is in such lovely condition i didnt even barter!
The marble set is for Poppy, as she loves them, it has the instruction sheet inside for different marbley games.

Above is a very old little set of matches, i just love the little jazz playing men round the sides...

I was so inspired by jaynes lovely new black tin that it was on my lookout list-i was thrilled to find this one covered in spring flowers!

And this is my new kindling bucket-i would use it as a coal skuttle, only i dont wanna ruin it!!!
Also fell in love with this little apron, soo sweet.

Yet another redoute rose print for poppy's floral wall.
And yes, i found CATH KIDSTON at the booty too!! Perfrect for my camera or mobile...

Lastly mum bought Pops this lovely white cotton sundress, she had a very similar vintage laura ashley one which she's worn for the last two years and is now is on my sewing/crafting pile of lovely fabrics. I think she'll be thrilled.
Whatever you've been up to i hope you've had a lovely weekend xxx

Hello hunni!

I would never think that!
I think since I went private its slow to show new posts...odd!
But other peeps have had the same trouble!

I'm so blessed that ppl think well of me, thats nice to know!
The parents have been texting me to see how I am!
I've been phoning checking on the wee ones...I do miss them..even tho I'm having fun sorting the house out, thats just to fill the void!
I have empty nest syndrome!
:>(

The house is so quiet..
When I was out with my Mum, I kept thinking somethings missing....was the pram...I've been pushing one for 19yrs....and none of the babies mine!
LOL!
Sounds like you have been busy....look forward to seeing that hun!xxxx
