A general chit chat really...

Found this pretty sewing basket for myself at my favourite Sunday shop ( the boot) a few weeks ago.Love the pretty floral design and I didn't notice properly until I got home it was choc full of lovely stuff, threads, pins, bobbins, zips and it was only £2 .Bargain!

A close up of the pretty fabric.

Another car boot find, pretty Sadlers tea pot,this will be going on my stall on Thursday.

Lovely Enid Blyton books, these will be going in my this evening

This beautifully illustrated Susan Branch book will also be going into the shop.

Knitted some brooches this week in pink and green, although I need to buy some brooch backs as I've run out.

Also had a go at making button jewellery this week, I loved it, sitting in the sun stringing buttons together, so relaxing! I made some bracelets in green and blue too!

Now onto another subject, recently I took part in a PIF exchange with and look what she very kindly sent me!

Isn't it just the sweetest little brooch you've ever seen! I love it, such a pretty colour too!

Thank you so much Rachel! I shall tell you about the rules of the PIF during the week.

Remember I was going to ask you lovely ladies for gardening advice, well I haven't forgotten, I've just got to take photos of the garden to show you what I'm dealing with! TTFN

What a pretty brooch. I remember sonme of those books, I loved Enid.
How have you filled tha sewing box then? I recently bought a new one from CK and found that I need some pretty little tins to store small bits inside my box.

Hey Rachel! You asked, on my blog, if I painted the white dresser myself. No, I bought it that way about 6 years ago. It's from Lexington Furniture here in the States. By the way, I host a RED post on Wednesdays, called "Today is Rednesday". With a name like yours, you should stop by!

P. S. - yes, I love being Happified!

Nothing more satisfying that some bargains at the boot sale, do yours start horribly early in the morning too?

Hen said...

Hi Rachel,
Thanks for your comments on my blog. I imagine you probably should drill drainage holes in the bucket but I couldn't bear to so I thought I'd see how it went this Summer. If it looks like the plants are drowning, I'll get the drill out!
