How is your weekend going? I hope you're all enjoying the beautiful sunshine today! Mine just got a whole lot better, and not just because of the sunshine!
I almost wasn't going to go to the car boot sale as I felt guilty as I should be preparing for my interview tomorrow (yes I still haven't prepared apart from to collect together relevant paperwork - I do have most of tomorrow though!)
But I am so glad I did - this must have been my best ever car boot booty haul!
(Please excuse the dirty carpet - we need a spring clean!)
|Reversible card cake stand with union jack pattern - 50p|
|Three blue glass bottles - 30p|
|Stainless Steel Teaspoons - 50p|
|4 woods ware teacups and saucers - 50p|
|Vintage Salter scales with two weights - £1|
|Single reversible duvet with pretty flower pattern (for bunting) - 50p|
|Vintage wicker picnic basket (to be repainted) - £1.50|
|Wooden Tray (to be painted white) - 70p|
|Small wooden table (to be painted white - for the fiance's dansette record player to go on) - 50p|
|Vintage scrabble set (for folksy items) - 25p|
|The entire booty - Total cost (not including £1 entry fee and 80p for a can of drink = £6.45)|

I get so excited just looking at it all! I got home and cleaned it all up and now I have three painting projects to do at some point, although the fiance would like to cover the table in newspaper or old NME covers lol so I'll leave that to him!
I am going to sell the woods ware on ebay, and probably the wicker picnic basket once I've repainted it.
I now have four scrabble sets - plenty to get making frames and rings for people on folksy! I will also start some more bunting when I find the time with the duvet cover.
First I need to get this interview over with (urgh I hate the build up) and then I have packed week with some baking, Glee Live at the O2, a fashion show at the Savoy and then my dear friend Lucy from uni visiting for the weekend with afternoon tea and cupcake decorating!
Oh I'm so excited! And tonight we're off to see Bridesmaids at The Everyman cinema in Hampstead - lets see if I can procrastinate until then rather than preparing for my interview eh!?
Have a lovely rest of your weekend!
