Slim Pickings

Hello there, I hope that you are having a good week. I'm a bit late with this weeks thrifty post. I usually post my finds on a Monday but yesterday was spent at school inductions. My youngest will be staring Primary School in September and my eldest will be starting High School. I had to attend two inductions at the seperate schools which left no time for blogging.

So back to business, what did I discover last week? Well not much really compared to normal. It's slim pickings around here at the moment. Here are a few of things I did manage to find....

A pretty hand embroidered mirror...

Some lovely little earrings...

A couple of plates, I was particularly drawn to the shape of this one...

A frame ready for a makeover...

Some lovely black lace...

Lots of doilies...

And this little chap with a rather grumpy face.

I also managed to find a couple of chairs that will be madeover but I haven'y had a chance to photograph them yet.
