I'll be getting in touch with you, Wendy, to have a little chat about the giveaway :-).
And so on to the inchie for this week. HAPPINESS was the theme. Now before I show the inchie, I just have to explain that I was in a bit of a silly frame of mind today, lol, after traipsing through puddles and ankle deep mud when we were walking the dogs this morning. I quite enjoyed the squelching and splashing, took me back to walks with my brothers when we were kids. You won't be surprised by this inchie then, will ya -
Ahem, swiftly on to the dilemma bit of the title. I haven't been to an English bootfair since last summer, and I really really needed to get out and look at stuff. Old stuff. There was a jumble sale advertised on Saturday and I relished the thought of being able to rummage through lots and lots of stuff. The only slightly worrying thing was, it was advertised as a POSH jumble sale. Ohoh. Posh kind of equals expensive in my mind. And thats what it turned out to be. Expensive. Individual stallholders, not a jumble sale but more like a mini indoor antiques fair. Needless to say, I didn't buy very much, but I did come home with a few little bits of jewellery because the beads were so gorgeous, colourful and heavy, and three scarves. And thats where the dilemma comes into it. The scarves are just lovely, beautifully embroidered, and I bought them to cut up for collages and fabric books. And now I am sitting here with them on my lap and I can't do it. I keep thinking, ooh, they would be so lovely to wear. But how often would I actually wear them? See my dilemma? Here they are -
Cut or wear, cut or wear, cut or wear??? Do let me know what you think!
Oh, and these are the bits of jewellery I bought for the beads -
