October Scavenger Hunt 2017

Grandson making models with his daddy's and uncle's old Lego bricks

Two large half barrel pots my son gave me a few years back when they were going to be thrown  away where he worked at one time.

Beginning with F........

Wrapping paper for this years Christmas present

Patchwork fabric I purchased a few years back

A street near the cathedral in Wells Somerset UK

Kettle *
Watching kettle boil is not boring anymore!
Different temperatures different colour.
The water was not for demonstration purposes, it was pre-heated to cook pasta in.

This apple was cut open and it didn't have core or pips

My "special" vase(s).
Black one with the daisies I brought back from when I stayed with my grandparents when I was a little girl from Woolworths with my pocket money for my mum in the 1960's.  The cranberry glass vase always sat on my grandmother's dressing table.  The tall brown one which holds my wooden and bamboo knitting needles belonged to my mum.  The little round Dartington glass vase  was given to me when I was forty by a friend, now holds wooden and bamboo crochet hooks and sock needles.   The hand blown lily in the centre I gave to my mum the day I got married.  You can just see part of the tubular base under the daisies

Own Choice
Whilst looking through old photos I found this collection of money boxes we own,
Think we have spy in the camp!

My kettle came from Lidls, but I think Russell Hobbs do one

Knitting Needles

I am very pleased that a well known charity shop (a famous chain one) took my knitting needles to sell in one of their shops without thinking I am giving them a lethal weapon yesterday.
