It was so hot outside this week,that I was fiddling around amusing
I had some very nice soft dusky pink silk in my stash
and a lovely cream lacy doily
So what to make, I just needed more cushions ( I don't think)
But the fabric just shouted cushion. So cushion it was
I added a nice blingy brooch and I love it.
This is a picture from a lovely book I have
It has so many projects to make
and lovely pics of lace,like the one below. I could
browse through it for hours.
This is a nightdress case I made from the book.
I used up a scrap of white sheeting and embroidered it
I haven't been thrifting for a while,I had decided to use and enjoy
what I have instead and save
Today though it became a little cooler
We decided to go for a much needed walk in the cooler air.
Of cause you can't walk past our local second hand shop
without a peak inside,we we can't anyway
This is what we found all mixed up in a box of old cutlery for 20cents a piece
We managed to make up two complete sets plus some jam and tea spoons
and a little ladle $3 the lot and they are silver plated.
I think I enjoy shopping in this shop when I haven't been for a while
I could have spent more, but I had decided to restrain myself this year. :)
