Bootsale Buys.......

Got a few nice bits at the boot sale yesterday, (top) this lovely Tuscan ware tea cup, saucer and plate which I love and is the first buy for my afternoon tea party.
Also got this lovely sugar/jam pot and chicken salt and pepper pot by Gisela Graham, which are gonna look fab on the new dresser.
Also got a couple of paper backs to add to my ever expanding bookshelf.

Had a busy week so haven't posted much. We picked our new carpet up on Saturday and finished the painting Friday. Hubby laid the carpet gripper and underlay at the weekend and hopefully will get the carpet down this week. We still need to fix the units to the wall, and at some point make a cupboard for the freezer. Bought a nice old pine table with a drawer and four chairs from e-bay for £41.00, which Hubby picked up Sunday. It's round the in-laws at the mo, so hopefully I will see it tonight. I'll post a pic when I can. So all in all the decorating is getting there.

I started my new job today as a play worker, I think it's gonna be good, but sooooooo many names to remember.

Love those chickens! I hope you won't mind my asking - which boot sales do you go to? I think I might be catching the boot-bug off some bloggers!!
