Hey all hope you all had a good weekend!
I had a real take it easy day yesterday apart from a little bit of sewing, nothing special just needed to make a holder for both my new Blackberry and my Sat Nav. I never buy the proper cases, 1 because they're so blumming expensive and 2 they're always so ugly!
Now I have to confess I didn't make particularly pretty ones, I had a small piece of vintage barkcloth laying around that would be good for nothing else really but I also wasn't that keen on the pattern so I made my cases from them. I might remake out of something pretty when I find a small amount of material that I love!
First up, who needs Blackberry accessories when you have barkcloth!
Next up same barkcloth different view, different gadget!
Then today we had an appointment, well we thought we didn't need one but we did so when we arrived at the bank they then told us we would need an appointment! So we booked one and then used the spare hour to trudge round a few charity shops.
Guess what! We found more of the glasses we love, I couldn't believe it, I have never seen this design before, now everywhere we go we see it! However normally they are shot glasses and let's face it they aren't very useful, but today I found 6 lemonade size glasses super super cheap, much more useful, especially for a large G&T or rum & coke!
Such a great size and they now look fabulous with all the others in the cocktail cabinet, now if I could only find some wine size glasses in this design, I did see some on ebay but they really were overcharging by calling them art deco!!
Then in a basket on the floor in another charity shop we saw a fab cocktail tray so cheap it was untrue, well we just could not pass it up!
Cute huh? There are some great cocktail recipes on there too, I'm thinking I may try this one next time we do cocktails, although is looks rather strong!!
OH also got a great pair of shoes, they look new - but old - and so easy for him to walk in, which is a bonus as so many old shoes weigh a tonne and these don't, so he was amazingly happy!
