Just squeezing in my' March Monthly Make'consisting of two cushions.  I don't know how old this fabric is but I think it is a  pretty vintage style and the doillies are definitely vintage.  I'm glad of the lighter evenings now,  it makes sewing that much easier, I struggled sewing the buttons on and that was with my glasses on!

Car boot season is upon us- Hooray!! We did a car boot at the weekend , and had a really good clear out, still managed to bring some new bits home though....

Pretty plates and two pie funnels...

These glasses, I would think are from the 1950's are in fabulous condition.

An EMBEE dispenser for loose tea, it fixes on to the wall and away you go!

This Bluebird toffee tin depicts a picture of Mermaid st. Rye

I'll be keeping this Nestle chocolate box. I used  to love looking at all the 'picture ' boxes of chocolates displayed in the sweet shop when I was little.

I won a great giveaway from Amy of Blighty Boutique, its a book called...

Its full of great photos and tips showing just how resourceful people were ,with 'Make do and mend being the order of the day.
So thanks again Amy.

 Lets hope the sun keeps shining Linda xx

  4. Hi Linda, What lovely things you found again. Our car boots have not started up yet, I can't wait! Do you know; today at a local charity shop, I saw a set of 3 shot glasses in their orginial box in the exact same pattern as your sherry glasses. How spooky!

  5. Love the cushion covers, excellent idea of stitching the doilies on them. Gives them that extra ooomph! Loving those glasses.

  6. Have never seen a tea dispenser like that before! Love your finds.
