Bootsale Bargains

Sunday is car boot sale day. It was a lovely morning the sun was shining. Now the weather is warming both the local car boots near me are in full swing.
 
I was quite restrained for me. I think because we showed up late most of the great buys had gone....you have to get there early I think for the real bargains.
I bought two books.
 
Lovely Laura Ashley living room book and a vintage crochet book.

The crochet book has some fab patterns.

Some are quite dated but with a change of colours they could be great.

Check out this outfit crochet chic hehe.


The Laura Ashley book has lots of inspiring photos.

This garden room is beautiful like having the outdoors inside.
Now I just need some time to read them properly!
I have a pile of magazines and books waiting for me to read them.
 
 Do you remember me telling you about the hanging birds I made for the rehabilitation centre....Well there they are on the craft stall at the centre, my partner kindly took a picture for me to see.
The centre staff liked them so much they made a special stand for them! Eek very exciting hope they make some money for new activities for the people who use the centre.
