Charity shop buys

I've been a bit quiet again, the Easter holidays kept me busy and with Tomas changing schools and Rachel being away this seems to have left me with no time to craft or blog! But now Rachel is safely home and Tomas starts school next week so things should return to "normal" very soon!
Today I managed a few child free hours in town, picking up new school uniform and visiting the charity shops. This is what I managed to find....

Rowan cotton glacĂ© all for £2 not sure what I'm going to make but I seem drawn to all things grey at the moment, any ideas would be gratefully received!

This fab breakfast set for £5.25, I have been using on of Tomas' china soldiers for my egg but now I will feel more grown up whilst I dip!

I'm always on the look out for clothes for the kids but Rachel seems to fair better than the boys for some reason, does anyone else find this too? I spied this pretty dusky pink netted dress on the bargain rail it was only £3.50 and the belt was 50p. She was very pleased when she got home from her school trip. I also found some pretty picture frames but Tomas nabbed one of them for a present for Rachel so I didn't get a chance to take any photographs.
Unfortunately the fabric shop is also in the same road as the school shop and the charity shops and it would be rude not to go in and say hello. I was very good though and only bought two metres of fabric for some personalised swim bags I am making for a friends twin girls. Bright purple and pink were the order of the day and these were definitely bright.
Not a bad days shopping I think, it's back to tidying up my workroom tomorrow as in my attempt to tidy up I seem to have made things worse!!

  3. All that wool for £2? wow... Lovely grey colours.
    I find the same in charity shops, loads of things for girls but boys not so much. Although Ian usually fairs better on the book front.

  4. I thought I was the only one who struggled with finding boys clothes in charity shops. I love the dress, great colour and the breakfast set is lovely

  5. Love the egg cups, very pretty indeed :) x x x x

  6. Great finds! Love the little dress, so pretty. Make sure you show us what you do with the wool! Karen x
