catching up

Hi readers,

Over the last few days I just could not find the time to blog, too busy with other things – mainly crochet, you will see the results soon.

Blogging often means editing photographs first, for me at least it does. So that is what I did this morning and I had a lot of fun doing so!

Here are some of the results: Son 4 wanted me to take some pictures of him playing the guitar and in his stage outfit…

Last week it was spring holiday for him so he went along to some of the thrift shops that are a bit further away and here are some of my treasures

I fond this lovely dark blue Creation Gabrielle handbag at Goodwill in Kapelle. It’s a leather bag in very good condition and it cost me just 1,50 euro. I just looked the bag up on google and found one for sale for 12,95 so I think I did o.k. here! It is not my preferred style but it is very practical so I guess I’ll use it a lot.

I found another handbag in the shop for Romania in Grijpskerke, it’s a lot older and in terrible condition, the moths have had a great meal of it! It was just 1 euro and I bought it to use the lovely clasp.

Can you see the moth holes in the wool fabric around the clasp?

I hope I will be able to attach new fabric in the same shape.

In the same shop I found this book, a little more expensive than I would like for a book – 3 euro – but in mint condition and something to keep for future generations as it talks about the history of homemaking from the eighteen-hundreds up to the nineteen-eighty’s.

It has lot’s of photographs that bring back childhood memories

We also went to Middelburg and there I found this pretty vase with an etched flower on it

I’m not sure how old it is but it is handblown and I love the shape of it, isn’t it amazing what lovely things you can buy for just a few

euro cents?

Yesterday the weather changed and it was a lovely sunny day just like today with temperatures of around 12 degrees C, so we went for a walk  and halfway sat down to look at the passing traffic and comment on people’s coats and scarfs. We saw quite a variety of styles, some nice, some you could only describe as ‘ strange’ .

This was our view from the bench.

Today is another lovely sunny day, 15 degrees today!  And this afternoon I’m going to the thrift shops in Kapelle with my parents.

I hope you will have a lovely day too.
