I don't know why! I suppose its because i love the feeling it gives me when i find that something that i have been looking for or finding something out of the ordinary that intrigues me.
The searching takes me into another world where i forget all my troubles just for a few hours.
I suppose you could call it shopping therapy on the cheap and i certainly would recommend it to anyone.
Or maybe i love a bargain and i come tell you i have had a few of those.
Here are some of my resent finds.
I am always on the look out for fabric as i love doing patchwork
Another cabbage patch doll to go with the 50 plus i already have, but not one of them are dressed the same .
I love this cheeky cat egg cup which i believe to be sixties.
I just love marbles, the colour, the texture.!
If i see anything to do with needlework i must buy it. This pin case is very old and made out of early plastic.
I bought this needle case at a boot sale on holiday in Norfolk
You would never believe it, but all these cottons cost me just 50p
I bought the jug as it matched the walls in my bathroom.
Inside the needle case
And finally the pegs.
A very kind friend in her 80s gave me these pegs she said they must be over 100 years old as they were her mothers.
