This and that...

I've been off work this week, not doing anything in particular, just "this and that" tidying my craft room, looking after Alexa, and doing a spot of browsing on e bay.

I just had to buy this Cath Kidston needlecase it only cost £1.80 and it was brand new and still in the wrapper. 







I decided to make a "red" shelf in the armoire, I like  the red things   with the roses wallpaper



I also won a ladybird book I'd been after for a while,

"the nurse" was one of my favourites when I was a girl



this copy is in such good condition for its age.

Look what else I got, Mary Poppins is my favourite film ever so I'm looking forward to reading the book.



Tomorrow I'm going out for lunch with my mam and sister for a nice "girlie" day.

Bye for now,

Lucey xx
