We had a lovely trip home and then on Sunday we trotted off to a local boot sale, where I found a really lovely old fashioned cut glass cake stand, a real bargain at £1.50( I soon soaked it in vinegar at home and had it sparkling!). A few stalls along I came across a flower display in a porcelain basket( which was a bit tacky tbh), but I loved the flowers ( they are very much like Prima stylee). I asked how much, to be told £2.50. Well, I liked the flowers, but not £2.50 much of niceness there for me I'm afraid. So I went to walk away saying Oh, I only really wanted the flowers...and the woman piped up and said "£1 for the flowers and then I can still sell the basket"...Deal done!! I beheaded all 8 of them from their wirey stems as soon as I got home and they will be appearing on some layouts before long I suspect.
So we headed into the last row of stalls and I saw some sparkling sequins poking out of a brown box. When I pulled it out I found it was a gorgeous belt made of various medallions of sequin each of the medallionss and embroidered flowers edged with delicate gold stitches, the seller let me have it for 50p..I couldn't believe my luck. So I am now separating each of the medallions and tucking them away safe for just the right page to come along....so a fruitful weekend it has to be said! I just love a bargain...don't you?
I also snatched a few minutes to finish this card that I had originally started at the last crop at Cardinal Colours
The image was very kindly given to me by my lovely friend Lynn ( thanks Hunxx)
The papers are from the Papermania Capsule collection and the bow is made from crochet ribbon. Linda very kindly gave me a goody bag last month to try and kick my mojo and those lush larger blossoms and crystal flower were in it ( Thanks to you too Linda.xx) Ahhh yes and I used quite a bit of Stickles too ;)
