Been a while since I've bothered to write, but haven't really done anything spectacular.
I bought the above craftwood heart from the sale table at craft and painted it white. I chopped off the bottom stand  and then macramed a hanger for it. It now hangs outside with my wooden birdcage  and sways in the breeze.

I've been making slow progress on the neutrals blanket and have completed 102 squares so far. Its my  take in the car project and gets worked on every now and then.

Today was op shopping day. In total we went to 17 shops.. a record for us. That being said I really didn't find that much that I wanted to buy.

Cotton reels at 20 cents each.. a bargain

Tapestry wool skeins 3 for $1. I bought these to make a granny hot water bottle something like  Jules of Little Wooly has made.- Correction----Kate at  FOXES LANE

A cheap pottery bowl

Some milkware for my sister

and another leg egg cup to ass to my collection. This one is missing some paint but I bought him all the same

And yet another jar to put my jam into (I dropped the other one I bought the first day I used it...BooHoo)

So thats it ...pretty boring really but a fun day shopping all the same


  1. Hello! I received your package yesterday and my oh my I love the handmade zipper bag and the contents inside. You are so thoughtful :) I know that this will be a project bag for me for my lace weight wonders on the needles. Glad to see you back to blogging. We are approaching fall so I guess you are approaching spring??

  2. Dear Monique,

    your posts are never boring, I Always enjoy reading them.
    The yarn you bought really was cheap. It will probaby result is something really special.

    I really would like to thank you for all the comments you write on my blog, yours are Always different from the others because they are so true and are more than just a nice comment on the surface.
    Glad to have you as my blog pal.

    (I don't know what has come over me for being so sentimental, perhaps it is the weather: just returned home from a really nice (warm) holiday in France and now back at home in Belgium, it should still be summer over here and yet we are having an autumn weather... : ( )

  3. Ohh the milk glass. It's so pretty.
    17 op-shops in one day sounds like my kind of day. x


I enjoy hearing from you and look forward to your comments
