It is interesting that here in the UK Easter is promoted as a bank holiday weekend & the religion seems to have been removed from the event. Also there are not the massive rows of eggs & chocolate in the stores. Very different view of the event to Australia.
We headed off to Brighton to stay with friend JB & planned to go carbooting each day but the weather was against us & we only go to go out on the Sunday. We did however get some great finds & had fun together which is the main game really.
|Already rusticated with chips on the enamel.|
|I bought this jam pot filled....|
|With these!!! LOL I know, I have loads of buttons but they are in storage & I need some for some projects.|
|Nice little collection of depression glass & a willow platter. (weren't we restrained with eggs?? LOL)|
|My lovely G Plan drawers!! The stash has to FIT in here!! Yep, good luck with that.|
|The photo does not show it properly but there is a star pattern on the seat. This was previously a cane seat.|
|A little bit of basket-age!! The hamper needs a little TLC but should come up a treat.|
|Bonus little doll furniture in the basket.|
|My folly - only realised this was repro once I had it in the car :(|
|This will become a telephone / knitting table|
|Edwardian towel rail that will be used for quilts.|
We got to go for a walk to the beach & saw something that does not often show itself - the sand!!
Mind you the getting back up the shingle was just like a gym workout but thankfully my Prince was there to lend a hand & give tips on technique ( small steps are best).
I saw some guys worming but have decided not to show the picture as it is a bit iccky. LOL. Just look at the lovely sand patterns. Could make a lovely quilting pattern I think.
|Can you see I am standing on the sand & looking back to the shingle & road.|
|The latest fashion feature for any tourist centre - an Eye.|
|The Prince & friend S.|
|Could make a lovely quilt pattern.|
|Mussels on the Groin. The Prince leans in for perspective.|
We have a weekend of cleaning & rearranging ahead & look what just turned up??
Loving what I do.
