these are all knitted garments my nan made for me, love

patchwork cushion and mini bunting

lovely patchwork cushion made for me by my friend George, this is my favourite square on it xxo

sketches, plants

some sketches from my sketch book inspired by photographs of trees I've taken recently
I left these two off my 60's/70's haul post, the owl was a steal from a table top sale at 30p, and the cup and saucer are from my Nan, we visited my Nan and Granddad over the weekend which I love, makes me feel I should visit them more often though. I like routing around in their house, my Nan is also knitting me a top to add to my collection of Nan made goodies, over 10 knitted jumpers and cardigans now.
I keep having to find new homes for all my plants, out of reach of kitten, she keeps either eating them or digging up the soil, these ones are currently on the oven extractor.

60's/70's haul

I made a little pouch to store painkillers in, I don't like carrying the big box around in my bag and usually just drop a packet in my bag and it disappears, this way it will be easy to find. Made using vintage fabric (used to be some curtains) I call it pain stopper pouch.
I bought this from a table top sale at the weekend for 50p!!! I'm not 100% sure what it's for, obviously food, maybe chutney and cheese and a place for a knife? What do you think? Anyway, I love it, whatever it's for.
I also bought a new jacket in a charity shop in Ormskirk over the weekend, I love the colour and wore it to the theatre on Saturday eve. It makes me feel like Jane Fonda in "Barefoot In The Park" or Catherine Deneuve in "Les Parapluies de Cherbourg".

perfect weekend

I had a lovely weekend, I hope you did too. I went to a farm shop, a market, some charity shops and tabletop sales, bagged some real rad things (pictures to follow). Went to Liverpool Playhouse to watch A Streetcar Named Desire. Made four fish pies today, one is in the oven now, and this evening we're going to watch Modern Life by Raymond Depardon .
