What a difference a day makes.....

What a gorgeous weekend - caught up with lots of jobs in the garden and by Sunday evening we'd finished and sat down with a glass of chilled Pinot Grigio! We've begun to realise that whilst we are always working on making the garden look nice, we never actually take time to sit and admire our hard work - changes afoot methinks... 

What a difference a day makes!  Just goes to prove we should make the most of our good weather when it's here. Talk about Monday morning blues - wet, cold and windy for the early morning school run and to top it all my faithful old tumble dryer has given up the ghost. I don't use it a lot but it's always a back-up when the weather's bad.

Part 2 of my charity shop finds last week.

Two vintage lampshades that look good with the curtains in my guest room; Glass jar filled with my own baubles and beads to be used as a bookend. Dainty glass dish for pot pourri; Pretty jug; Lots of lovely lace and edgings; Sweet little jam dish

Two gorgeous bags

Red leather by Faith and black silk evening bag

Considering we've recently sorted out a lot of paraphernalia that has accumulated over the years - here's me buying more!! It's all good fun though.

Bye for now


  1. I've been taking advantage of the odd bits of nice weather to get some work done in the garden too. It's looking better but there's a long way to go yet. You found some nice things at the charity shop, I'm still thinking I must look round some but haven't made it yet:) I'm not one of the world's great shoppers I'm afraid.

  2. The weather has been awful here today really cold and lots of hail. Wish I had done more in the garden at the weekend - silly me, optimistically I always think the nice weather is going to last. Love your charity shop finds.

  3. What a lovely idea to fill the glass jar with baubles and beads.. it looks great! Jx

  4. Great finds those, I have a glass jar filled with beach pebbles and shells that I use as a bookend too.

  5. Hello, we are swap partners in the Jubilee Swap at Faith Hope and Charity Shopping. Looks like you enjoy you're a pro at charity shop finds so hope I can find you something lovely!
