What a lovely lot you are! Such nice, helpful comments when I was feeling down. I think I've got my head together again and am quite a bit more positive. Thank you again.
My Thursday work didn't take as long as I thought it would so I called by the Care Shop on the way home. My mum calls it "Aladdin's Cave" as there's such a variety of charity items. This was my little haul:
Two more Kathie Winkle plates for my little Retro Collection
Two more rosebud plates for my Vintage Collection
A little selection of pretty crockery, which I made ...
,,, into another cakestand
A bundle of clothes (all three for £1) to cut up for fabric (and no, the little dress wasn't worth keeping whole for grandbabies)
And finally a little metal tray
Isn't it wonderful how a charity shop can make you feel so much better for such a small outlay!
