Promise Renewal

Well, yesterday was the last day of school and also the last Brownie meeting before the summer holidays, last night I renewed the promise I made as a Brownie 32 years ago, as at long last I became a fully qualified Assistant Guider. On the last meeting of the summer term we go to a farm for our 'Sausage Sizzle', the farm is owned by a lovely lady who used to be Brown Owl at our Brownies and it was her that presented me with my certificate and who I renewed my Promise to. It was a fab evening and Martin and the kids came along to watch me. After they were gone though, we got down to the very important business of cooking sausages on open fires, its my favourite meeting of the year, anyway, due to not having permission from parents to show pics of the girls, there is only a pic of me making my promise.

A Few More Charity Shop Bargains

Recently I have been looking for Glass candlesticks all thanks to Kristy of Vintage Pleasure and have found these five at local Charity Shops, they look so pretty all stood together on my windowsill in the dining room with tiny pink gingham ribbon tied round each of them, I took the pic outside as its quite dark with this dreary weather indoors at the mo. They were all bargains the two pinky ones were 60p each, the tallest one was £1.25, the tiny one 59p and the pretty cut glass one was £1.
I also got this pretty china cake plate for £1.49 isn't it sweet? I have made a banana cake today so will be serving it on the plate later. I think my hubby is getting used to me buying what he might call tat!!! and just lets me get on with it now.

There is a car boot sale locally tomorrow morning so if I can get myself out of bed I will pop along to that, I might find some more lovely bargains if I am lucky.

Shabby Chic June Swap

I have been so busy this week, working at nursery every day and getting the AVON out as well.Anyway, here is what I received in the Shabby Chic Forum June swap, isn't it fab, the theme was strawberries and cream, the wonderful Bliss of Country Bliss was sending to me, I have a gorgeous jug cover, I used to have one years ago all lace and beads but it seems to have disappeared, so am so happy to have another one, a beautiful smelling strawberry sachet, it smells just like strawberries :) yummy!!!!! The next item has been commandeered by Gracie, she loves it, its a lovely japanese crocheted strawberry toy, its sooooooo sweet also a lovely handmade card too, so thank you Bliss hunny, I love it all xxx

I really wanted to get out in the garden and get some pictures of my climbing rose bush today, but its tipping down with rain, so hopefully it will stop later. We were also going to go to the Glossop Carnival later, but I think 2 miles is too far to walk in this weather, especially for the kids, and the traffic will be horrendous so I am not driving. Its on tomorrow too, but Martin is back at work and I really wanted us to go as a family this year, oh well never mind.
