Nothing to show in progress (box for Sherry is still under wraps) but these are my bargain buys down the local charity shop.
A flower press for 50p. (That's for me as I press a lot of flowers, usually under a heavy book. Look what I found inside though, a beautiful rose which I will put in Eliza Evans book along with the pansies already there.)
A wooden boat for 50p. This speaks of pirates and tresasure to me and will be transformed shortly.
Packet of 48 papers for £1.50 instead of £3.99. Sure to get used in the future for something as yet unknown.
2 sets of 3 little nibble dishes one red one gold 75p a set. Have in my minds eye to do a christmas table decoration using these as I have a long table runner in these colours.
A wooden gold coloured star for 20p and a wire spirral name place setting decoration for 50p. Now these I am going to use to showcase each day starting Dec 1st the little decorated countdown christmas boxes (a swap I entered into) I should be recieving any time now in the post. (I know they have left the USA.)
But finally my best buys the two wooden bambi's for 10p each. Repainted in brown with red noses they are going to be transformed into reindeer pulling a sleigh. (Now how difficult can it be to make a sleigh!!)
Oh yes I do like to keep busy.
The smocked material is still drapped over my sewing machine in the background as I just love looking at it and the christmas materials I showcased have now been made into the Mug Rug on my previous post.
