A charity shop find!!

I am never normally lucky enough to find anything in the charity shops! or normally I get beaten to it! yet on Friday as I was going to work, the charity shop opposite my shop was just putting out the most lovely high chair ever!! It was even green like my shop, so obviously meant to be mine!! and here is a photo of it, I just love it! It turns into a table and chairs too!

It has been a busy week as always for Fin and Gabs! I have such a paper trail of activities, trips, yellow day, book day and a parents evening on top! Some days Fin has to be at school early and finish late and on a different day Gabs has to be there early, they need their own calendars! I tell you they are so tired on an evening, Fin has been heading up to bed early, after doing minimum amount of homework I add! and I go up to tuck him in and he is snoring away! Glad to say we have a break from footy until the end of March as his team has played enough matches so we can have a few family Sundays to look forward to.
With Mothers Day coming up I have been making some new makes to try and get ahead, here are a selection,

I have been getting some fab new fabric for a few vintage style projects coming up,

They are all so lovely and just waiting to be made into something nice!
Have a lovely week all of you, hopefully with some sunshine.


  1. Andrea,
