30 minute trolley dash!
Joining in this weeks Cath Kidston debate I have to show you my finds this week.
How lucky have I been in the charity shops. A couple of vintage aprons...I love the fabrics that these aprons are made of - so of their time.
A pair of 1987 Laura Ashley curtains for £2.99...Lots of charity shops now charge more if they can spot a label - Next, Laura Ashley etc but they don't seem to have wised up to peering into the seam to check the selvedge yet! Not sure whether I will use them as curtains yet - although there's nothing wrong with them I might just have to turn them into a tablecloth and matching napkins. (There will still be plenty left over.)Mmm -I'll see.
And another crocheted blanket...
And just look at it - it's huge! Its folded in half over my washing line! It's in perfect condition and made of wool. Regular readers will know that I have found several of these recently and I can't leave them behind. This cost little more than a new ball of wool!
Here it is laid over my garden bench. I'm so thrilled - I hadn't even intended going to the charity shops today - it just happened that there was an empty parking spot just outside as I was passing!
So here they are all together - a brilliant thrifty Saturday. And all for less than £10 all together!
I'll just leave you with a couple of pictures to give you an idea of where I might be for some of next week - can you guess?
I want to check out this amazing sculpture to see how much it has rusted over the last couple of years and update my pictures of it. The complete phrase is - "I hear these voices that wll not be drowned."
Have a good week.
