We managed to get to our local car boot on Sunday (not had a chance for weeks due to all the retched rain we are having at the moment.) I had a feeling that it could be a good one and it didn't disappoint! And the best bit was, that there were actually two on. I was so excited...
I couldn't believe my luck when I spotted this basket, then five minutes later I came across some lovely old lace, and there down on the floor were these vintage cotton sheets and monogram pillowcase. Well I just had to snap those up. Next was this old watering can, I have been after one of these for a while.
I have a bit of a thing for collecting old glass jars, the vintage glass buttons were a great find too.
But best of all was this old sowing box from the second car boot. When I opened the lid I had to stop myself from squealing with delight. Inside were lots of sowing goodies, pretty vintage buttons, old wooden cotton reels and some nice metal pin tins. These were all hidden below a mass of old zips and little paper bags. When the man from the stall said £2.00 for the lot plus the box, well I just couldn't believe my luck, it had to be mine :) This is going to be another project to do up, I will show pics once finished.
Then to complement my sowing box I found this old needlecraft book. I cant believe what a great book it is, and the pictures are hysterical!!!
Well not these two obviously, but this...
This is the one that really made me giggle, unfortunately you cant really see her manic expression... lol
On a creative note I have actually been very busy, lots of unfinished projects though. I still haven't got around to adding the finishing touches to the birds show on my previous post but I have made two :). I have also started knitting Ella a lovely fairy, but have decided to continue this when on holiday. I promise I will get around to showing you all my unfinished projects, I'm not normally this erratic.On a blogging note...
I have just been tagged by the lovely Sophie, so I'm now off to think of 8 random things about me, I don't think it will be too hard.
Bye for now
