Sunny Saturday

It sure was a beautiful day. The early morning was surprisingly cold, but within a couple of hours the sun broke through the clouds, and it warmed up so quickly. Paige and I checked on the seeds we sowed yesterday, as she was sure that she had seen one growing last night. Right, hmmm. Surprisingly, nothing was poking through the soil yet, lol.

I had promised her to take her along to a boot sale at lunchtime, so we talked Nick into taking us there. He is such an adoring uncle, he didn't mind wombling about with us. She was so happy when we found what we had been looking for, a lovely big Polly Pocket set. No figures, but that was ok, we have a few, so that was not a problem. AND....... she found a gorgeous pure white Kitty with a waggly tail and a crown and she talked! Oh to be a child. She giggled so happily whenever she pressed Kitty's paw and Kitty talked to her.

It wasn't a very successful one for me though, all I managed to find was a large darning mushroom, lol! Not to worry, tomorrow is another day, and hopefully ( please keep your fingers crossed ) the man with the ledgers will be there and will have kept one back for me.

After we took Paige back to mummy, I spend a couple of blissfully peaceful hours in the garden, sewing flowers to my knitted square blanket. I won't bore you with picture of it today, as it is still not finished, sigh, but it won't be long now, and then I'll show you the final pics.

I also made a few more tags, which was fun. Two sets of three, and I think they are quite sweet. The background is stamped in copper, I used some pretty vintage girl images, old music sheet, a bit of ric rac, buttons etc.

This is set 1 -

And this is set 2 -

I am ready for a cup of tea now. Have a great Sunday. Toodlepip xxx

Wow, Polly Pocket sure has been around a long time. My daughter had a set when she was a little girl.

Just a reminder that today is the last day to enter the giveaway.

Have a great weekend!

Polly Pocket is a great find, we love PP over here. Shame there was nothing to tickle your fancy.

Still those tags are mighty pretty Lizzie. Love the punch you use down the edges. Nice pink ricrac too.

It's hard to concentrate on your own treasure hunting when you have a child with you, but her delight was your delight, so all was well.
Lovely tags. xx
