Monday is always a good day to visit charity shops. I never managed to find anything I liked, but maybe my tastes have changed, or perhaps I just have longer to browse and think now. Anyway I found a couple of things last week and a couple more things this week that I really like. The sun and palm tree stand is perfect for my quilting rulers; the cat is a leather money box; the basket is perfect for holding the CDs that we keep in the kitchen; the jug is handmade in Portugal - can't you just see it with a bunch of flowers in it - and the butter dish is, well, it's a butter dish. DH has always bought things in charity shops - most of his clothes plus several nick-nacks, many of which have not been to my taste (or to put it another way, have been ghastly) so now it's my turn. I can rarely find clothes that fit (I'm just 5' tall) or that I like, but I could become a serial nick-nack buyer. I wonder where our nearest car boot sale is?
Yesterday was a domestic sewing day - mending, replacing the elastic in a skirt, etc - but I did manage to finish and hang the new curtains for the kitchen. They are purely decorative, but I'm chuffed with them. It only took me about 8 years to do!! Well, I'm fed up waiting for the photograph to load, so I'm posting anyway, and I'll try again to get a decent shot of the curtains before they start to fade!
By the way, has anyone come across a website that is actually helpful for using Blogger? I don't find their own help pages all that helpful.
