First of all, thank you for your sweet comments on my yo-yoing ways, yo are all so lovely!
This morning I was up at 5.45 to go to the boot, in fact 2 boots and a village of garage sales!

Here are some of my favourite finds.The spools of machine yarn in the above photo were only 50p each!
Can't wait to use this pretty fabric!
I love this little tin, but it will go on my stall.

Whoops, the tray is upside down!

A girl can never have enough vintage buttons!

In the afternoon we made a picnic and went to the lovely Old Minster, a village a couple of miles away, we ate our lunch by the river

We spent a few hours reading, lazing, and chatting.It was lovely to be in the sunshine!

This gorgeous house was opposite us on the river. It's a beautiful house with a HUGE garden, I love the thatched roof!

Now we are back home and the Hubster is cooking Steak in peppercorn sauce and chips for tea, followed by homemade chocolate mousse! Naughty but very nice!

I shall have to do my gardening tomorrow as I ran out of time!

I shall be back tomorrow with tales of my Challenge of the Utmost Kind!
