Nice and short

Keeping it short today, because I am trying to clear up at least enough for me to be able to get onto my sewing machine.

After the outdoor bootfair yesterday morning, we went to an indoor one. Boy was I glad it was indoors, because, as we were driving along, huge black clouds were rushing towards us and within a couple of minutes it grew dark and the heavens opened. It was like Niagara Falls rushing down over the windscreen, the wipers could hardly cope.

Anyway, the indoor bootfair was quite busy, and I did find a couple of things. I was really chuffed to bits with these trios, anything with roses makes me smile and get my purse out -

This is yet another rosy treasure, a gorgeous Royal Albert Moss Rose tray, perfect for my dressing table in France -

I might have shown you a few bits of carnival glass before. I love that stuff, the way the colours shimmer and change, like oil slicks on water. Can you imagine how excited I was when I found this stunning vase? The beautifully flowing, sensuous Art Nouveau style shape, the incredible shimmering colours, I was smitten as soon as I saw it. Snapped it up, didn't haggle, just put it in my bag with a huge grin on my face. Darned thing is very difficult to photograph though, especially as the light is so very bad during this horrible weather

Thats all for today, I am going to be a good girl and clear another square metre or two of mess.

I've really enjoyed your last two posts - I don't need to go shopping, I can just get my fix by reading your blog, Liz!

I feel another "hmph" is in order madam. You have such an eye for finding goodies. Very pretty.

Did I read right that you are "tidying"? Are you ill?
Sounds serious to me.

And, what are you plotting with a sewing machine? Spill the beans.

Haha, very funny JJ, I know me and tidying dont really go together, but I can't get into the dining room at the moment, not only are all the Fair boxes in there, the floor is covered in wood wool, the table is covered in fabrics, gift set bits, and god knows what else, the chairs are piled up with stuff............

Would this be your shortest blog post ever Liz?!! I always read it before I have my shower in the morning, so today I was out earlier than usual. Not good. I need my time out too you know!

By the way, that cleaning lady you have on your blog is going to wear out your carpet soon. Give her a cup of tea please.

Lululiz said...

So sorry, Sarah, how very inconsiderate of me, writing a short post just to screw up your timetable! I'll do better next time, well, I'll try anyway.
As to the cleaning lady, I tell ya, those 3 square inches of carpet are the cleanest ever! Errmm, and the only clean inches, lol. My doggies make sure she has plenty of work, and of course I supply her with copious amounts of tea!

You have found some very pretty things! I like the vase.

Good luck with the clearing up, I sympathise as I have been doing that for months here!
