Ah well, there's another weekend nearly gone, and a dismal wet one at that. Nothing exciting happened in this household, just more clearing out and DIY.
Now I know I said that I wasn't going to enter any more giveaways for a while but I succumbed to temptation and well, I won again! The Fortune Fairy must be in my street. This lovely selection of Valentine images came from Amy at Four Sisters in a Cottage. If you haven't been to Amy's blog before, do make a visit, Amy has recently recovered from breast cancer and very courageously shared her journey with us. Amy is a lovely lady with a big heart - Thank You!
So to ensure a more even distribution of winners and because they are such great fun to do, I'm having another Giveaway. I've put together a pink and green selection of pretty items which I hope will help to banish the winter blues.
The winner will receive:
A vintage bone china teacup and saucer in a pink wild roses design.
A piece of Laura Ashley fabric - (about 1/2 yard) the design is called Anemone from late 80s
A lavender sachet made from a Laura Ashley crochet coaster
A paper flower and bead garland (on wire)
A magentic heart with a vintage flower trim
A tiny floral envelope with a sweet surprise inside
To enter, as usual just leave a comment on this post. The Giveaway will close next Sunday 27th January at 7pm (UK time)
Oh, I should add that if the winner is outside the EU, the lavender sachet will be sent unfilled.
And finally...well, I've been out thrifting again. On Friday I visited all the other charity shops here which aren't in the town centre. I don't go to these so often because they are spread around and require a trip in the car, but they are more likely to yield bargains than the ones in town who like to act like they are proper shops - most of them are full of unwanted Christmas gift sets right now. From 5 shops I got these, nothing over £1, thought you might like to see:
I won't bore you with all the details, best buys were the Laura Ashley wallpaper at 25p a roll, and the Laura Ashley red and white tea towels - 25p each. And to think I paid £6 for a new one of these just before Christmas - darn it! Right, I think that'll be enough on the subject of thrifting for a while, you'll all be getting fed up with me.
Hope you've all had a wonderful weekend, don't forget to leave a comment if you want to enter the Giveaway!
