I must however admit, to being slightly concerned this week. Three boys at home, lots of feeding, cleaning and entertaining required, when would I fit any thrifting in?
I am relieved to say that I needn't have worried in the least. Things have virtually found there way into my life.
Take my first find.
This little G-plan table was on Freecycle. Only had to pop round the corner to collect it. Quick layer of Farrow & Ball..... Quite fond of it already.
I actually needed a table too!
My next item of treasure was actually an EBay purchase, again, just round the corner for collection.
Don't you just love a weekend case? I love the little Airport makers badge. Now I just need a weekend away, take heed Mr Betty.
This next little gem was actually purchased from a Charity shop, I cannot lie. I nipped out for food and took a very minor detour, so minor infact, that when I got home the family were none the wiser ;)
As most of you will probably already know, I am partial to the odd typewriter in my life.
My 'Oooh Betty!' stall would be literally naked without one and as Mrs Thrifty says Here, they are fast becoming a piece of history. She very kindly chose my yellow typewriter as a 'Find of the Fair'. It sold of course, they always do.
I may find it a bit tricky when I have to part with this handsome devil. Check out his faux teak trim and Viceroy...what an important name to have.
Lastly for today, in my thrifty section at least, is an absolute MUST HAVE for a crafty ladybird book collector like moi.
Paid slightly over what I would normally spend (£3). It is in perfect condition and when would I find it again. Probably next week knowing me.
I do like the ladybird books of this ilk, ie, Things to Make and Do etc.
I also think that this sort of collection is rather good because my littlest has benefited too, maybe not the knitting one but I did get a rather good one on Insects right about the same time some stick insects arrived in our home ( twas not an infestation, they were invited in).
I would love to hear about other bloggers collections, pictures would be nice too.
I am actually considering purchasing the book called 'A Collection A Day'. Has anyone else got it or read it?
Anyhows, I will leave you with a pic of the kitties, it has been a full 3 days since I last showed them off. God I am a flipping show off!
How funny. Think they just dozed off whilst playing on their ridiculously huge, taken over the whole kitchen, play centre.
