It's been an intense week

and it's still going, so i haven't even thought of taking pics or looking for the camera charger, but as I'm at the pc, i thought i'd do a quick post (hence the lack of caps).

one of the thrifted things that i've wanted to post a pic of was a tablecloth that i found in a charity shop. whilst trying to catch up with my 400 odd feeds(!) i found that dottie angel had just bought the same tablecloth (different colour) in the states!
so, imagine that in pink, with red roses. :)

the good thing about having a mega clearout (which is one of the things that i've been doing) is that you rediscover treasures, and one of the things i found is like a pirates chest of treasures. a biscuit tin (a danish butter cookies tin. i put the tin on the coffee table so i could have a rummage later and son saw it and thought it was biscuits. he was disappointed when i told him it wasn't! it's not like he doesn't have biscuits...we have a big tin full of them, just not danish butter cookies.) full of buttons, beads and sparkly bits. (this is a tin that i inherited from my dad so i didn't go through it properly when i got it along with all his other stuff)

so, (when i get back on track) expect to see lots of goodies.

Just followed the trail from Samantha's blog. I really wish I had been able to go to the open house it sounds like it was a lovely afternoon.

I too had fairies in my garden at home, my Dad built them a castle and we regularly had fairy rings on the grass next to the castle.
