Another Sunday boot sale find was a vintage skirt - I would wear it with a few adjustments (losing the frill and the broiderie anglaise it has round the bottom!) but it has a 24" waist. And that is something I am not likely to be ever again!So - it shall be hacked up lovingly to make at least 1 cushion for the lounge, for the princely sum of 50 pence!
Next up was found in an antique shop in Southwold yesterday, I wanted a sweatshirt from Joules for C so we wandered over. It only takes 20mins to drive there and I don't go often enough. Southwold is lovely, I feel better just being there. Yesterday was VERY windy and the sea was extremely choppy to say the least, but as you can see it was bright and breezy.
This is a decent sized piece of Sanderson fabric in a print called myrtle by william morris, for another 2 pounds. Another kick myself moment is they had a tablecloth, the same fabric edged with a really delicate crochet trim for a fiver and I put it back. C was climbing into R's pushchair at this stage and shoving it into very delicate displays so I have the excuse I was stressed!!
I love William Morris prints and this one looks so summery in green and yellow, I don't actually know which room its for but I don't usually let that stop me buying something I like, and this time was no different!!
