magpie monday and a moodboard
I had a lovely time pottering around a carboot sale a couple of Sunday's ago ... these are the bits I got ...
We had this jigsaw when I was little ... Kings and Queens of England ... it had a piece missing as mum had bought it from a jumble sale when we were kids ... this one though the seller assured me is all there ... so I bought it for nostalgia's sake :) .... only 50p
These 2 box frames were £1 for the pair ... not keen on the rather dull grasses that are in them, but I got them for the frames ... I bought a couple of box frames from the art shop this week for a lot more than £1 for a couple of projects I am going to share on my craft blog in the next few months. Not sure what I will do with these 2 but I am sure something will come to me ;)
... and now for the china ... you knew it was coming didn't you! hehe
This plate is by Alfred Meakin and a really unusual shape ... only £1 ... and goes with a couple of things I already have :D
But these are my real bargains ... I found a seller that had 2 plastic boxes of tea plates ... all marked at 20p each ...
It was one of the first stalls I stopped at
Didn't want to overload my self as we had quite a walk home
So I only bought 4 ... but I love them all!
And this bracelet was 50p and I bought it for the beads ... not sure what I am going to do with them yet, but I will make something from them :D
So all-in-all very happy with my purchases and I only spent £3.80!
