So, at the end of such a wonderful, busy week, we have spent the weekend relaxing at home. Summer is finally winking at us with the promise of warmer, happier days, so it was only fitting to squeeze in the first proper visit to the boot sales! And I didn't come away disappointed! In fact, I hopped, skipped and jumped excitedly towards my car with my loot which to me felt like Christmas morning! I have been keeping my eyes peeled for a long time for a lovely record player, as I already own a few vinyl lovelies that were just chomping at the bit to belt out a tune. Well, today was my day...Just look what came home with me!
Now, for all you vintage purists out there...no, this is not a vintage piece. But, it is tippety-toppety marvelous! It plays CD's, tapes (hmmm...yip, now THAT is retro!), radio and of course vinyl records! It does everything that I could possibly ask it to do, and more! So, the kids and I have spent the afternoon listening to 'The Sound of Music', and a record from 1967...'Jungle Book'...and of course a little bit of Doris Day!
Apart from striking gold with my newly acquired musical friend, this girl's wardrobe is singing hallelujahs too! Not one, but two tickety-boo pairs...Brand spanking new, and only a few bob!
As well as this Twiggy number...
And for my crafty soul...lovely Cath fabric and ribbon...just a few pennies later! Sigh...
What a super thrifty day! The best part of it all...this thrifty soul is singing out loud! I managed to sell off an old chair that we all just kept tripping over...lovely as it was it had to go! So, my new found bargains were funded by the chair! Happy days!
Hope your weekend has been restful, joyful, and full of blessings too!
