Well that is what I thought today when I came across this
That is weird don't you think. I have coveted the Staffordshire jars for time.
The amazing thing is that I got 4 the same today.
Now I obviously don't require all 4 for myself I actually only need 1 so this is my plan.
I will have one for me for display purposes only.
I will give one to my BFF Jayne.
I will give another one away.
My quandary regarding the giveaway is this. This here blog is not yet popular enough (and may never be) for a giveaway....do any of my blog readers even like this kinda thing?
If anyone loves these jars as much as I do please speak up as I would love to share my treasure.
If I have a few requests I will come up with a draw idea and if not who knows.
Btw, if you are thinking, ummmm that Oooh Betty woman has 2 extra jars, I know and I am quite obviously going to keep one as a spare ;)
I started a mini suitcase makeover last night. I used this little 1940s case (I know it's birth date as it is written inside!!).it is in a right sorry state, no clasp etc. I keep my crafty bits and bobs in it and place it under my sofa for emergency crafty situations.
I hadn't planned to do the mini makeover but as I scanned through an old Playhouse annual I spied something that I absolutely had to make use of.
How could one resist this little dress up mouse. I am quite pleased with how it looks, much more fun than before.
The thrift shop that I found the aforementioned jars in is actually the shop that I get all my haberdashery bits from.
It is amazing for fabric, needles, doilies etc. You name it, they have it.
There is an amazing woman there who sorts all the buttons and stitches them to little bits of card. I have had so many amazing buttons from her.
I think she has an eye for the special ones and puts them all together for me.
I am looking forward to the weekend. Littlest son is tired and needs a lie in and so do I.
Mr Betty has work plans for Sunday so I will be chilling out and probably crafting. If anything exciting occurs (unlikely) I will be sure to let you know.
The kitties are doing well, very troublesome.
They seem to keep each other occupied for most of the time but they do flop over on a regular basis for a bit of tummy tickling. Love them already. Xx
