Holiday Bargains!

How was your Bank Holiday.
Bit wet, yeh mine too.
But we did get out early Sunday morning for a mooch around our local car boot sale.
And happy days I found some gorgeous bargains!
First there was a brand new pressure cooker (£3.00, no photo, forgot)
Then we spotted this cute coffee pot (£1.00)

Isn't it pretty

Doesn't it look just dandy on our cooker!
Such a lovely glass top too.
We already have two, I know, I know, but you need to know they are great. They make coffee the old fashioned way and it tastes fantastic, we use ours everyday!

So very happy with our bargains we would have gone home contented.
Then I spotted

Oh my heart skipped a beat,
It's a French Arocoroc set sold as 
Pink Swirl or Rosaline

It's pink
I love pink glass
How perfect

It's in fabulous condition too.
Oh did I mention
It's pink

And do you know how many pennies this cost me?
Just £3.00!
For pink!

Now I really don't need any more cups and saucers but I just knew I had to save it!

What a great trawl!
 We came home feeling very pleased with ourselves.
I've also been busy on a new crochet garland which I'm loving!
How was your weekend?
Any bargains, any new makes? I'd love to hear about them.
Oh and don't forget the giveaway it finishes tomorrow!

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.

I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!

Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
