It seems ages since I did a shopping post …. and to be honest there isn’t any crafty shopping here ….. I’ve just indulged myself with a few lovely things ……. on Saturday we nipped over to one of our fairly local garden centres, where they were just setting out their Christmas displays.
And as I have a BIG thing for birds at the moment I just couldn’t resist this tree decoration ….. it will hang in my craftroom all year round …. it cost £3.99 and I LOVE it.
Another thing I collect is flying pigs, (it’s my user name in various forums), but they are few and far between, so I only have a very small collection. I’m a bit fussy because they have to have “nice” faces ….. and this one has a beautiful face! It cost £2.99, and again it will have a special place found for it in my craftroom.
This set of vintage 1950’s child's suitcases cost me £6.50 (plus P&P) from e-bay. I just love them! The handles are metal and remind me of my childhood so much. They were not in pristine condition, but I knew that when I bid, but with a little bit of cleaning they are just what I wanted.
One side of the largest case was a little scuffed, but I already had these Making Memories travel stickers, which have covered the marks perfectly.
I have looked at new sets of similar mini suitcases, but they aren’t a patch on these and are SO expensive!
