Todays loot from the boot!

Todays loot from the boot

It took me ages to clean up the heavily tarnished candy dish! I'm so glad I did though!I love the tiny glass decanter and I may keep it for my bedroom!
This Royal Albert sugar bowl is so pretty!
Another little find I forgot to show you last week.Such a sweet little vintage brooch, made with the teensiest tiny stitches! I have popped it here.
Actually, I'm surprised the boot was on, as it looked as though it was going to rain any second!
I went mainly for plants, Sweetpeas and geraniums for a little colour in the garden!
Although I'm waiting for the sun to come out to plant them
Apparantly it is going to rain all day tomorrow! Hey, ho, I shall crochet all day then!
Hope you are having a lovely weekend!

Lucky you and some lovely finds .... I have never seen so much disgusting garbage at our local one this morning. I really don't know how people have the nerve to stand next to it. Let's hope next week is better ;-)

You were lucky with your car boot loot. I went to the boot sale today and left without finding anything decent. :(
But hey ho, never mind. Tomorrow I am going to the garden centre for some peonies for the garden. :)

Hi Rachel,

You had some lovely finds! I especially like the floral bowl.

Hope the rainclouds will blow away and you will get some sunshine tomorrow.

Lieve groet, Madelief x

Love the mini brooch! Did it rain all day with you? We had an overcast morning and have had an evening of beautiful sunshine.

Oh I love the bon bon dish! So pretty! I went to my first ever car boot sale last weekend and had difficulty finding anything. I can't wait for the next one, I can feel an addiction starting!

Thank you for sending my garlands so quickly. I absolutely love them and will be blogging about them as soon as I get more than five minutes!

So chuffed, they're so pretty and even nicer than they look online (if that's possible!).

Ah it was you!!! Hurrah! I've edited my post to link to you now.

I must confess, as much as I do like the flavour of Bonne Maman I really only buy it for the jars!

About painting your dresser, Annie Sloan does a chalk based paint that, if you don't wax it, will scrub off but will with stand a damp cloth to clean it. If you wax it it is more hard wearing and you'd just have to sugar soap scrub it to get the paint off. It could be a good way to get your husband to agree to paint it cream, it's not permanent nor hard to remove like normal paint.
