Todays post is somewhat of a quick one, I'm grabbing five minutes while mini magpie grabs 40 winks. I've been meaning to share with you a few of mine recent thrifty finds for a while now. Hopefully all of my finds will be up loaded onto the 'I spy, with Rubie Magpie' page but it's still at the rough and ready stages so here is a good a place as any.
First up, as soon as I saw this, I new it wanted to come home with me, that and it wouldn't stop shouting "I'm yours, take me home with you" so I had to give in to its request of course...
|...Can you tell what it is yet??|
While I leave you to ponder for a 'minute', if you pardon the pun ; ) Just a quick up date on the 'Husb' Valentine's Day card that I said I would post on the day of hearts, apologies for not keeping my promise, I ran out of time but it was a hit or maybe it was the addition of the mini love hearts bought to accompany it. Here it is:
Back to my new treasure, ta-dah!! Did you guess right? Tick tock, my new clock, flash back to the 1970s, don't you just love it? Just need to find the perfect place for it now.
My second find I would like share with you today is this collection of beauties. All for a mere £3, what a bargain...
Although, I will only be able to offer three lucky friends a brew in these vintage lovelies, there are more plates, so plenty of cake for everyone. Yay!! Best get baking then, oh! what's a girl to do? I could though, go on the hunt for my cups, it would be rude not too.
why? oh why? was everyone encouraged to 'chuck out the chintz'. That's my question for today. Bring it back I say, hopefully it's not toooooo late.
Finally, before I sign off for the day and leave you in peace. My new stash of wool for my 'Treble Stitch Challenge' Can't wait to play hooky ; )
Bye for now, enjoy the rest of your Thursday, see you again soon xx
