Today is Thrifty Thursday.
I don't have much to shout about on the thrifting front but I like to think of this post as quality over quantity.
Word of warning,you need to use your imagination on this one.
Imagine it is July and the sun is shining bright (maybe transport yourself to the South of France).
You are cruising along in your camper van and feeling a little peckish.
Knowing you have the most marvellous picnic hamper, filled with delights such as egg sandwiches, you spot a beautiful lake and the most perfect picnic spot.
There is not a picnic bench in sight, but do not panic.....
Place the described scene in the background if you would and imagine the smell of egg.
This is the little vintage picnic chair that I rescued from the charity shop dumper. What were they thinking?
I really need to be bobbing into that shop on a daily basis if this is the sort of treasure that is being disregarded. The picnic table was thrifted last week. It is so handy for my stall.
I have been after one of these bookshelves for a while now. Littlest really needed one for his ladybird books. I have placed it on his bedside table. I may borrow it every now and then to display my stall books on or I may just steal it back for my own books.
Well, today has been a day when I have been forced to stay in. The Land Rover spluttered to a standstill last night, luckily not too far from home. It is not a major problem but it is going to be off the road until Tuesday...eek
I took to my Sprite 400 caravan of dreams and decided to do something completely useless.
I made a dolly peg.
I have had the pegs and teeny face decals forever and I just had to itch that itch.
I did it all with scraps and oddments and I stitched (messily) by hand, really joyous.
Then I thought....maybe others would like to have a go too
So I put together a little packet of Dolly Peg goodies.
This is just a practice one.
I have also listed some more fabrics and tea towels in my Etsy shop. I have been getting a bit carried away actually.
Tonight I will be stitching some pincushions whilst drinking tea and eating sticky toffee pudding.
Now that's multi-tasking for ya!!
Thanks for reading.
