The photograph doesn't really reflect its beauty, but you get the idea. One of these days I will run down the croft and try to find the pot of gold, the rainbows are always such a pretty sight one of mystery and wonder.
Earlier in the week I had a stroll to the village charity shop, they are having a half price sale at the moment so well worth a look. I wasn't disappointed coming away with a pile of craft magazines for 10p each. A wonderful way to spend an afternoon, curled up by the stove.
Another great find was some vintage crochet patterns, they are always a delight to find. Not only a great addition to the collection but another hour browsing by the stove. I have a plan to crochet some of the doilies and make some cushions for the pew.
I picked up a couple of wooden frames that I intend to paint and do something with, not sure what yet. 10p and 25p so a real bargain.
My final find was a wooden tray for £1, which I intend to paint and stencil.
So lots of finds with some crafting projects in mind. I am still working on Hectors quilt, slowly but some progress is been made. I keep getting sidetracked with other things, mainly the kitchen or projects for the kitchen. Thankfully normal service will resume in there shortly.
The Canadian geese are still residing in the croft behind the outbuilding. It is a joy to see them along side the sheep, whilst there is no interaction between them they live in harmony with each other.
Changeable is the best word to describe the weather here today, we are now back to blue skies and sunshine. What is it like in your neck of the woods?
See you soon.
Great finds at the thrift store. Here it's cold and snow covered. Brr.ReplyDelete
Wonderful photos! I love your charity shop finds! When I was home visiting Mum last year I found a great charity shop that had loads of craft magazines. Unfortunately there were only so many I could fit in my suitcase lol.ReplyDelete
More snow here. We're under a Winter Storm Warning until Saturday so I don't think I'll be going far. Sigh. Spring can't be here soon enough!
There isn't any thrift shop here in my area!ReplyDelete
What lovely finds.ReplyDelete
Weather changeable here too. One minute it's sunny and bright and the next cloudy and dark.
You foud some lovely things at the charity shop, I especially like the tray and the frames, here is so much you can do with those. Changeable weather here too but still quite cold:)ReplyDelete
Glad the snow is gone and you could get out and about. Your new finds will keep you busy making lovely things! Have fun with your creativity. Thank you for your lovely comments, your good things are so cheering and it is good to know that you find lots of good in your life.ReplyDelete
we had a wee bit of snow yesterday - it was raining by the time i went to my stitch up group - and all the remaining ice had gone this morning -for now anyway.ReplyDelete
i am so ready for Spring this year x
You've got some get finds, especially the frames and wooden tray. I would paint the frames black and take two of those beautiful sheep photos of yours and size them to fit the frames, but not use the glass. Your sheep photos are spot on these days of trending farmhouse decor. Guess you probably didn't need the advice as you probably have other plans, just got excited for you!ReplyDelete
Good finds, will keep you busy for a while.ReplyDelete
How fun! I think I have a few of those doily pattern books. You did find some wonderful bargains. I have spotted some Canadian geese flying north this week. Maybe winter will leave us early this year. While we have no snow right now, the gray skies are here with rain forecast for today.ReplyDelete
I absolutely love your life.ReplyDelete
Here, in Pennsylvania, it is COLD and SNOWY!
Just like winter should be. : )
That tray is an excellent find!ReplyDelete
Some great finds in your charity shop. Here in the midwest, USA it is sunny but cold with some snow still on the ground.ReplyDelete
Mi piacciono i tuoi lavori 💟 baciReplyDelete
It's been a bit grey today. -3 this morning and about 8 later on. There were great chunks of ice floating in the pond. Great finds.ReplyDelete
You have some nice plans for all of your finds. It's nice to see the peaceful kingdom on the croft as well as the lovely rainbow. We have bright sunshine, but cold temperatures. It's lovely to have the extra light these days. ♥ReplyDelete
Great finds especially the vintage crochet books. Have fun crafting.ReplyDelete
love the tray and the stenciling idea! We had crazy weather yesterday with snow, then sleet and then rain. What a mess! I think we are to have nicer weather over the weekend.ReplyDelete
You found some great inspiration - love your ideas! Nice to see the peaceable kingdom outside the doors and the pretty rainbow. We have much the same here.....Enjoy your crafting time. xx KarenReplyDelete
I love thrifting and I know you do too. It's always fun to see what we'll find this time.ReplyDelete
WE have had rain every day in February so far. I'm hoping for a break soon!!
/you have really found some great pieces!!ReplyDelete
I enjoyed seeing your bargains and am looking forward to seeing some completed doilies made with your vintage patterns! Love the sheep and geese living in harmony. Are there any wild predators that threaten the sheep there? I bet on occasion dogs will pack together and cause some problems. Hope not, though. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)ReplyDelete
love that wooden tray xxxReplyDelete
I'm pleased to hear that the weather's a bit calmer now. You've done so well with your charity shop finds, the magazines were a steal. I don't think it matters with craft magazines how out of date they are, they're still relevant and still worth reading. How lovely to have sheep and Canada geese in the croft.ReplyDelete
With your imagination and talent you are gonna do beautiful crafts !!!!ReplyDelete
Stay warm !
What a great price on the frames. Mac' always on the lookout for reasonably priced frames and they're not easy to find.ReplyDelete
Sitting by the stove and looking through crafting magazines sounds like a very restful and perfect way to spend a winter day. I hope you had tea and warm scones to nibble on as well :)ReplyDelete
Those are good finds. Curled up by the fire does sound good. Looks like Hector's quilt is going to be really cute.ReplyDelete
I like what you picked! Especially the wooden tray dear :)ReplyDelete
That's Amore 💕 Blog
Hi there.I have been watching Monty Halls Hebridean Experience on BBC 2,just Awesome.Glad you found somee goody's at the shop they do look interesting.Show us the frames when you have painted them.Love the photos.ReplyDelete
Looks like you have some good materials for some wonderful projects! We were at 60 degrees today and rain in the forecast for the weekend which we desperately need! :-) Thanks for stopping by my blog, we love Disney! That is exciting you have booked for April! Enjoy :-) Have a wonderful weekend.ReplyDelete
Changeable describes the weather here, too. The rain seems to be easing off and there are brighter moments during the day. No snow.ReplyDelete
Your craft projects always interest me. Finding craft magazines at a thrift store is a great idea.
Changeable is the word for Missouri USA, too!ReplyDelete
great finds,No snow here, just rain.ReplyDelete
Totally agree about the pleasure in vintage pattern finds. Have fun making the items. I've recently picked up some thread crochet after years of doing none. It is always inspiring to see 'new/old' patterns! ;-)ReplyDelete
Has your kitchen 'resumed normal service' yet? hahaha...that phrase made me chuckle.
May I point out, with great respect, that they are Canada Geese NOT Canadian Geese.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see what you do with all you treasures!ReplyDelete
Those look like some sort of domestic goose to me. I don't think the Canada goose has an orange bill.ReplyDelete
