Strolled around the Wednesday car boot yesterday in the damp yet strangely warm morning. The weather improved to sunny and hot but today is heavy rain - yeugh! Just a few purchases but I also paid the charity shops a visit. Here is my booty:
|Two oh-so-cute salt and pepper pots, 50p|
|Two heart-shaped baking trays for 40p|
|Little dummy and shiny bird. I buy the dummies and shabby-chic them up.|
|Two swatches of pretty fabric|
|Maxwell Williams plate for 25p|
|Battered old stool and metal container, £2.50 the pair|
I sort of guessed that the heart trays were in the car boot because they stuck good and proper.
I was right!
However I got eight lovely cake tops which, when filled with cream and homemade plum and cherry jam and stuck together, went down a treat.
The remainder of the cake is going to be a trifle base when it grows up.
The stool is now dismantled, sanded, sugar-soaped and awaiting primer, paint and a new seat covering. The container is primed and awaiting paint. Why do I add so many WIPs and UFOs to my life when I have enough things already on the go? I must like a challenge!
