I hope this finds you all well and finding time, and the mojo, for crafting. We are still enjoying our belated summer weather here in the south west of Scotland - it's not too hot, just pleasantly warm. My sympathy, however, goes out to those of you living in the US who are, I believe, suffering incredibly hot weather - let's hope it cools down for you soon.
Here's an update on the trip to the car boot sale at Ayr racecourse yesterday. There is usually a sale, together with some market stalls, every Sunday unless race meetings are going on - and yesterday, because of the great weather, it was huge ... hundreds of cars ... so it took a good couple of hours to wander round. And, here's my haul. At the front, a box of extra large jigsaw pieces (£1) - saw them altered to make a mini album recently - a three frame wallhanger (50p) which is just crying out for a bit of a makeover.
This little wooden jewellery box cost only £1 too - it's sweet as it is but I may give it a re-vamp sometime in the future.
This little metal bird brooch, another £1, will look great on a project.
Last, but not least, five wood-mounted stamps costing an unbelievable 50p each - £3.50 in total. A couple still had the original price tag on them, and either of them would have cost more than I paid for all five!!
So all-in-all a profitable day and I'm looking forward to playing with the stamps just as soon as I've finished sorting through my snippets. I blame Jules at Always With A Heart, of Snippet Sunday fame, for this displacement activity. You have just got to check out her blog here because she reveals her mahoosive snippet collection - a sight that makes me feel so much better about my wee pile of bits.
Breaking news ... my granddaughter, Jenny, said 'yes' to Kyle's proposal yesterday!!! No date as yet, but I'll need to start saving for a hat - I haven't got a thing to wear :) Oh, and that's another card to make too! Off to break the news to the EM - he'll be delighted for them too - Kyle's a nice lad.
