Just a blog post..........

Well hope everyone had a good Easter, and I would like to say hello to my new followers. 
We didn't do much over Easter, just went to see the grandchildren (see previous post).  That was an absolutely lovely day.  We love going to see them.  Saturday we were going to do a boot fair, but all of a sudden the weather was
against it turned quite cold and we didn't fancy standing in a field freezing, so we abandoned the idea.  It turned out to have been quite a fruitful afternoon and we missed it!  The first bootfair of the season and apparently every space was taken in the field and they opened another field too.  The buyers were queuing quite a while to get in too.


green bakelite sock darner bought for 50p

...........they had another one yesterday, but this time only a quarter of the field was taken up, and there was more buyers than sellers.  I am actually trying to wean myself off of boot fairs too much stuff needs to go!  I have actually stopped going into charity shops now but Alex wanted to go so we went and I picked up a green bakelite sock darner.  The top unskrews for you to keep needles and darning wool inside.  I already have my mums one which is brown and also unskrews.

The last of my birthday flowers.  The two little vases are from here

and my 50p flowers from yesterday from Morrisons!


  1. Love that sock darner, what a lucky find!


  2. Glad you had a good Easter, and belated happy birthday xxxx Love the sock darner, such a great colour, what a good find :-)

  3. Your 50p flowers are brilliant. I went off to the supermarket yesterday and passed a car boot event, the first of the year, but it wasn't too packed out.
    I'm going to start a big clear out soon!

  4. Those 50p flowers were such a bargain! I love your sock darner too! x

  5. Great bargain find, I have a brown wooden sock darner that belonged to my late mother-in-law, its well worn!

  6. Lovely flowers, and the sock darner was a great find. I'm sorry I missed your birthday, Julie.......wishing you a very Happy belated Birthday and a wonderful year ahead!
