The view from my front door always involves an old Land Rover of some sort. This orange one is at least a cheery colour. I want an orange car!
Mr Betty keeping his business cards in an old Rubiks Cube. Bless him.
Our new super duper coffee maker. Bit pricey for us and our thrifty ways but it does save money if one can enjoy a nice coffee at home without going out and paying Costa prices.
This arrived yesterday. It is supposed to be my surprise mothers day present.....bit of a giveaway?
This picture of my big boys when they were little. They loved their long locks (but not each other) and I have been looking at this pic today and wondering where that time has gone :(
My newly tidied and organised living room. I have bought my sewing machine down and set up my desk so that I can stitch downstairs and chat to Mr Betty. He is sat at his desk just around the corner, not sure if he is appreciating the groan of my little sewing machine as he tries to make his very important business calls. Ah well!
I am enjoying the world of Twitter. I didn't really get it til a couple of weeks ago but now I am a real tweeter. I have got some brilliant followers and have been in touch with someone who will also be selling at the Altrincham Vintage Market on Sunday.
This will be my first time at this event. It is called Magpies and I.
I am a little nervous but I am also very excited.
It starts at 11.00am (bit of a lie in,whoop) and finishes at 3.30. Come along if you can.
A small selection of thrifted goods from this weeks mooch. I have only been on 1 search this week. I met a friend for a coffee and as there were 2 charity shops on the same run of shops we decided it would be rude not to pop in and have a quick scan.
Here's what I bought home.
7 Johnson Bros side plates that will add to my mismatched blue and white dinner service of sorts.
4 really good quality sewing patterns. Gorgeous clothes.
A Figgjo Flameware skillet.
A small version of a jug I keep my knitting needles in, perfect for all my crochet hooks.
On a light hearted note, I purchased a very vintage bar of 'lifebuoy' soap for Mr Betty. I will laugh if he uses it. Probably get a rash.
Don't forget to enter my Springy Thingy giveaway here.
