A Little bit of Thrifting, Sewing and Crochet *~*

I have been a little busy lately being Mum!

But I did pop out Saturday for a visit to the charity shops.. and I bought a roll of pretty wallpaper ...

A pair of pretty curtains for fabric..

A floral vintage cake plate...

Six vintage lily of the valley dishes...

A hand painted glass " forget me not" pin dish...

A rosy teapot stand....

A vintage angel and baby picture.. I can remember my Mum buying one of these from the " ladies of the church" who used to sell them for charity

And finally a Peter Rabbit story book to add to my collection...

I have been sewing too...

A fairy doll called Floss... I shall show her off properly in another post ( I am looking into an Etsy shop so watch this space)

The snow has just gone here in the Moorlands, wet and windy now!

Time for some crochet, I have started a blanket for my lounge.

Thank you for all your sweet words I love reading them all
