JS and CS

Oh my. The lady had a whole plastic linen basket full, FULL, of wool. I was tempted but I resisted and only bought a few (5) balls @ 50p each. I did feel a new granny blanket coming on ( similar to this) but I will not start it (no I will NOT start it) until all my other projects are finished.

Junk shop

I sounded convincing there, didn't I? We also bought a wardrobe from the shop to go in the bedroom we're decorating. This was a little bit more than 50p but considerably less than a trip to Ikea. 

These leather boots were hardly worn, fit and I liked them. I don't know when I'll wear them or what with, but I still like them.

Charity Shop - £4.50


  1. That wool looks lovely and I think you were very restrained to only buy five balls. I'm afraid I would have bought more.

    I agree that you were very restrained only buying 5 balls of wool! I never find shoes to fit me in charity shops. Those boots are great and MAKE SURE YOU WEAR THEM!
