As I did my little trip to the Post Office yesterday, how rude, I thought, would it be not to pop into at least one of the charity shops nearby.
I am so glad I did for I found this little gem of a cake stand. While other items on the shelves were pleading for me to take them home, this one shouted loudest.
I love going to those little shops. There is always some kind of drama going on, and plenty of gossiping. The sarcastic in me love it even more when the lovely old ladies working as volunteers, are actually less than charitable. Well who wants to live in a perfect world, it would be boring wouldn't it? It would make random acts of kindness rather plain.
I had my own bit of drama in the last couple of days, when I realised I put the wrong fuel in our car and drove off unaware. I cried in anger... how could I be so stupid? I've killed it!
Ah la la...
(*whisper * I cry a lot but not normally for something I have done, in this case I was hanging my head in shame because *whisper even more* it's the second time I have done this).
Adrian, bless him, it's in times like this I know he is the only one for me, comforted me saying it can happen to anyone (sure, but not twice!), and bought me these tulips to cheer me up.
First thing yesterday the car got towed to our trusty garage. It seems I got away with it... ouf! (Ade reckons it runs even better now ;)
On a different subject, I had another request following the makeup brush roll, a matching make up bag...
And these little rays of sunshine arrived a few days ago. They haven't left my feet since.
They are made in the basement of this little shoe shop in Scarborough in the UK, by all accounts, using all Swedish materials.
I just need to make some summer dresses and skirts now and all will be just perfect!
