Our morning at the car boot sale

We took at trip to the boot sale this morning but this time we were selling so we were there early enough to grab ourselves some bargains.

First up was this lighthouse shaped set of wooden shelves The top bit is broken off and it's in need off a good clean and a lick of paint but hey it'll look lovely in the bathroom once we've given it some TLC. And the price .... £1

An old pattern book for cuddly toy's of witch there are several I Fancy having a go at and it's in immaculate condition and she only wanted 10p for it..

A bag of 14 balls of 100% cotton yarn In some of my fav colours Baby blue and lovely duck egg colour for £3

and this spot the dog fabric panel which I thought would make a lovely wall hanging quilt ( much nicer than the a-z poster he's got now) for only 50p

And last but not least

Hubby picked up three odd shaped slices of wood for £1
But why I hear you say... Well I said the same thing but after about and hour of hammering and drilling in his shed he came out with this...

a funky bird house which right at this moment is getting painted with a rather large collection of different coloured paints.... I'll be sure to show you what it looks like when it's finished ( I can't wait to see it either lol)

Oh And I've been working hard on my project for the kitchen swap and it's now finally finished. I can't show it to you just yet cause I want it to be a surprise for my partner but I'll be sure to take a photo before I pack it up and I'll let you see it when I know she's received it.

Gotta go now cause hubby's dishing up our tea ( Yes he cooks too lol) So I'll speak to you all soon.
