We managed to fit in a bit of fabric and ribbon shopping at the Rag Market too and then bought quite a lot of fruit from the outdoor market.
It always warms my heart when I go back to Birmingham as the market traders are so friendly and helpful! In a short space of time, I had been called darling, Bab( a popular Brummie expression) and Princess as I paid for my goodies! It did make me smile.
The fabrics are so pretty and so reasonable at £2.50 per metre! I shall be using them to make heart garlands for my little shop.
I also couldn't resist this pretty ribbon, not sure what I'm going to do with it yet though!
I've also been faffing with a corner of the lounge today, having a bit of a change around with the furniture. There used to be a pine chest of drawers in this corner, next to the sofa. Unfortunately The Hubster knocked over a scented reed diffuser and didn't notice. Overnight the oil soaked through a box of tissues and the print leaked into the pine top.
Not to worry though as now I'm going to paint this pine piece and have it upstairs in the bedroom.
I have moved the tea trolley from the dining room into it's place.We've had this trolley for 27 years and it used to be dark brown wood, I painted it white a few years ago. I bought the pretty storage boxes from TK Maxx a few weeks ago!
Perfect for storing a bit of my yarn stash in! This is the spot where I sit and crochet and watch TV at the same time.
I bought the little rose bush from Lidl just before Easter, it was only £3 and I'm planning to pop it outdoors when I can be sure the frosts have finally gone!
The sun is out this afternoon which is lovely!
Hope it's shining on you wherever you are!
Have a great week
