My sister and I went op shopping on Tuesday. A lovely day. I bought some new blue and white bowls - what a surprise and as usual my sister found lots of treasure.
In the last shop Shirley found a small shadow box - not the best quality but pretty good. As she was umming and ahhing I talked her out of it. Next day she left a message on facebook telling me about the great ideas she had for it overnight.
I went back today...gone...but on the upside for me I did manage to find these.
They cost me the grand sum of $2.50 for six. The pattern is "Christine" (my middle name) and is the same as the cutlery canteen Mum and Dad bought us for our wedding present. I couldn't believe my luck.
Michael was with me and he took one look and said "don't expect me to use them, they're filthy." He didn't believe me when I said they would clean up with a little bit of help from some Silvo.
I didn't even have to use any elbow grease and I'm sure they'll now meet with Michael's approval...I think we'll have an icecream sundae for dessert tonight.
Flowers are always prettier when they come from your own garden, don't you think?
