Booting Treasure!

Sorry I didn't post about the blogs yet, but I wasn't expecting all that glorious sunshine! I have been outdoors gardening and doing makeovers on small pieces of furniture.

I have also been to the boot, it was fantastic and turned up some real treasures.The mugs in the first photo came from the boot, I love them, ideal for a large mug of tea or coffee!
Love this pretty cushion, it has been freshly laundered and will be going on my stall!
Cute little 'tea for one' set, this is brand new.
I adore this pretty little vintage tin and as much as I love finding pretties for my customers, this one may be staying at my house!
These vintage knitting needles made me laugh! I had a lovely green pair too, but they slipped onto my wooden floor and the end snapped off one!So annoying!
These are double pointed needles, bouht these from the same lady, and these too

I especially love the green ones!

Right I'd better get back to my painting while the sun is out!

I shall be back tomorrow to tell you about the lovely blogs, no, really I will!

I have more treasures to show you too!

Have a lovely day!

I love, love, love the vintage knitting needles and buttons and the sun is still shining here - I'm soooooo reluctant to head indoors, but all my gardening is done.....for now that is.

Enjoy your day,

Oh how fun- I'm always on the lookout for vintage knitting needles and haven't been lucky so far.
I stopped by to let you know I finally got around to going to my p.o box and your little package was there waiting for me. Thank you so much! What a cute little bunny and bird and note cards too :) It's made my day.
Would you mind if I posted about them this week on my blog?
Have a great day :)

Hi Rachel,

You found some lovely things at the boot sale. The cups and buttons are my favourite! I am looking forward to our holiday in the UK. Then at last I can visit some charity shops and car boot sales again!!

Lieve groet, Madelief
