Diamond Jubilee Swap

Oh I'm a bit late with doing this but better late than never.

I took part in the Diamond Jubilee Swap organised by Moonstruck Creations and Crafts @ Home. I was partnered with the lovely Felt by Rae. After a few emails between us it was time to send out the swaps.

I received a gorgeous parcel filled with loads of lovely treats.

It must be said the chocolate did not last long.

Here is what I sent out.

Friday finds

I thought I would show you some of my latest finds.

Such a pretty little tin, now all my buttons are in there. I found this in a local charity shop and it restored my faith that there are still some good finds out there that are not at silly prices. This was 50p.

A long sort out addition to my bedroom. Somewhere to store all the out of season clothes. Although at the moment I'm not sure what should be in there!! I found this at a car show and it was a lot cheaper than they are going for on Ebay these days.

Lovely glass bowl just crying out for a trifle in it. a mini tea cup and saucer for Little Miss. Another long sort after item, a toast rack and little butter knife. Oh and some lovely Cath Kidston ribbon. All from charity shops and antique shops in Rye. Oh and I nearly forgot the two lovely pieces of fabric.

I did manage to get some other lovely things there but they are for presents.

Cluttered desk

If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign of?

June Scavenger Hunt

Well at long last I am back on track with the scavenger hunt as arranged by Kathy.

I really enjoyed doing this again, and I hope to catch up on the ones that I have missed out on.

So here we go:

Sleep - on my bed full of cushions.

On the edge - my little cat on the edge of a shadow box

Before - my old swing seat, I'm sad.

After - my new swing seat, I'm happy again.

Symmetry - a butterfly.

 Out of reach - crisps and things on top of the kitchen cupboard.

Close - my latest finds a toast rack and butter knife.

At night - view from my patio.

Diamond - Diamond Jubilee decoration.

Crown - coronation mugs in the bathroom.

Bunting - so much of it around this month. This was for Little Miss birthday.

Majesty - our view in Battersea Park for the Jubilee.

A little glimpse of the last month. I'm looking forward to next months list.
