We spent the morning at the HUGE car boot at Stafford Common, it was a bit cold and dreary early on so there were bargains to be had from some very 'fed up' sellers.
Linking to the Fabulous Magpie Monday HERE Here are my best buys:-
Another Embroidered and Crochet Cushion 50p
Pretty Pyrex type cannisters in the perfect colours for the kitchen at Tightwad Towers £2
And...I can't begin to tell you just how beautiful my latest picture is. At 20" square this lovely freehand embroidery is breathtaking. The border is white on white, the flowers are ivory and then that pink bow, all on plain white cotton fabric. Mr Tightwad obliged with the photography here, holding it at various angles so I could try to get a decent photo for you. I have to say it's just so lovely and I couldn't hand over my £2 fast enough. In fact I break out in cold sweats just thinking of the hundreds of people who walked past this beauty before I got there.
It was surely meant to be mine :0)
After a nice lunch with Mr & Mrs Tightwad Snr we came home to more house fixin' and I just wanted to show you these little peeks at the kitchen (most of which still looks like a tip) but, hey, we can see the light at the end.....
Apologies if these are a bit dark but the sun was pouring through this afternoon. Hope you spot the Chicken theme going on here. The wonderful yellow gingham curtains were from The Salvation Army shop in Ashbourne a couple of weeks ago and cost me £1.45.
I think they're perfect.
Enjoy the rest of the Bank Holiday :0)
