Last week I had some shopping to do, nice shopping that is , not the boring weekly shop where I pace aisles looking for inspiration ! I headed over to Cardigan , the boys needed haircuts so me and my sweet girl decided to leave them to it and have a look around by ourselves. We agreed a time to meet back at the car and set off. I had a little list as one does when they live in the countryside. I had a gift to buy for my friend's son , some sewing bits, interface, bias tape and zips, a new dress for my sweet girl too. Well soon I had big ticks next to all the above items on my list however..........whilst completing my list I saw a pretty bowl in a charity shop window. Now I promised myself (and my dear husband) no more "bits"!!!!when we moved , my "bits" as he calls them had taken days and days alone to wrap and pack . I have stopped (though I hope it is just a temporary stop lol) going into antique shops, charity shops and flea markets and boot fairs because I alway see something that wants me to adopt it!!!!! I can,t help it, honest!
Anyway we stood outside admiring the bowl and I convinced myself it would chipped and cracked. My sweet girl shook her head and said it looked fine........no I wouldn't be lead astray...but if we finished shopping and it was still there on the way back to the car, then.....maybe I could have a look ,just a look. Of course it was still there on the way back. Now I love flowers and I thought it would be chipped but it wasn't, it was like new, and cheap as a bag of chips (lol) . With a giggle I payed for it and hid it at bottom of my bag. No need to confess to dear husband too soon.
Here it is
my sweet girl spotted these is a lovely craft shop a few shops away
I love candles and butterflies and these sparkle too, so pretty.
What is a girl to do ?!!!!!!!!!
Yep, you guessed it..lol.......they are now sitting happily on my old dresser, looking very much at home in my summer display (I will try to get a picture but it is so dark and overcast at the moment)
And the best part is dear husband hasn,t noticed their arrival. I love that man !!
Until next time.
