pins and needles

I found a few things last week one being this lovely old book, the C.S. I go in once a week is staffed by some lovely elderly ladies who always appreciate my taking anything in, not like some of the more commercial charity shops who pick and choose what they will accept.

I also picked up some cutlery it's from an old company no longer in production, they were in a drawer full of odds and ends, my daughter went back yesterday and found a set of salad forks for me, sadly no knives or teaspoons. The tray cloth was a bonus at 40p.

This is a quick Thank You to Annie the felt fairy who very kindly sent me a bag of felt for my Rainbow Guides. When I mentioned the word fairy they were a bit puzzled and wanted to know was she like the tooth fairy but without teeth?  I'll leave this up to your imagination :)

Great book. I know what you mean about some charity shops. I stopped giving to one particular one when I went in and when I asked if I could donate some things replied 'Well I hope it's not rubbish'. Charming!

What lovely finds, I love the old book. I wish our charity shops were better, they are all so commercial and sell lots of new things. Have a great weekend.
