Birthday Treasures...

Today is my birthday, shh don't tell anyone ;) I am 21 31 today, how did that happen. I have always been curious, at what age do you start lying or avoiding the age topic. We had a lovely girls night in with 6 of my friends catered and hosted by yours truly with. Since i started university my social life has been non existant so i thought my birthday would be a great excuse to have the gang round. It was wonderful catching up with everyone, there was plenty of laughter, gossip, screaming, eating and drinking. Everyone left just before 4am this morning and we were all sad to go our separate ways.

After a few hours sleep i woke up tired, had a headache and a sore throat from all the screaming, shouting and chatting. It was very tempting to stay in bed but i decided against it so i got up showered and nearly had birthday cake for breakfast. Master T wanted to go to the carboot so we went but it was freezing cold. I managed to find some birthday presents for myself.

Spray way waterproof coat. Just in time for Tuesday's team building outdoor activities. Bomebody said it's going to rain
2 DVD Solomon Kane and Eat Pray Love, Soap and Glory bag , spray moisturiser and scrub. Boots moisturiser 
Next peacock design purse, Phillips Kindle cover, Elle Macpherson gift set, strawberry necklace and topshop pocket mirror.
Two pairs of shoes for Master T and some Olympic key chains. Master T is collecting all the Olympic memorabilia he can get his hands on.
 These 2 are my favourite birthday presents even though i bought them for my self.
This will be my last carboot for this season. I think i have all i need and the weather is not exactly friend so i would rather curl up on my sofa.
Hope you've all had a good day. I am going to have cake and it will be bed. I will need plenty of rest if i am going to pretend that i am younger than i really am. Linking up with Liz at me and my shadow

My Treasures...

I had no intention of going to the carboot sale yesterday due to the weather forecast. I just hate getting wet even for a bargain so my plan was to stay indoors and catch up on some house work. I hadn't even put the plan into motion when my friend phoned asking if we wanted to go with her. At that moment all plans of staying in or getting wet were completely forgotten and i quickly said yes so off we went to the carboot. I knew there wouldn't be many sellers but i kept my fingers crossed that i would find something that i liked.

This is what i bought

 Master T bought himself the lego pieces and he built the models especially to put on the blog. The lego pieces cost him £1. The scary toy in the middle is Megatron and he cost him 50pence. He is so proud of his bargain as he calls it. I am forever tripping on lego and transformers, i don't know why i keep letting him buy them.

BBQ season is well and truly over but there is no harm in thinking ahead to next summer. The charcoal was a pound and the 2 fish grills 20pence each. The best buy of the whole year is the scrabble game. I have searched high and low in charity shops and carbootsale with no luck whatsover. I even tried ebay but i was always outbid. I put it down to people buying them for craft projects and all i wanted was one to play. I have never played scrabbles but i'm fascinated by it.  At one point i was even tempted to buy a brand new one from WHSmith until i saw the price. Anyway i couldn't believe my eyes when i saw this and i quickly asked for the price. When she said £3 i didn't even hesitate parting with my money. I has all the pieces including instruction. Now all i have to do is learn to play.
Here we have a white purse and black case for glasse 20pence each. The lamp shade was 50pence and will be going in the hallway when i finish this post. The A-Z bookends are very pretty, i love the colour and they are already gracing my bookshelf. The books were 10pence each and i bought 8 of them. These will go to my niece and some to my friends daughter. I think this weeks buys are more practical and will be definitely be used. What do you think?

Handmade With Love...

I made this cowl a while back but can't find the link to where i got it from so i can not link.

 I think i got carried away knitting because it's longer than i wanted it so you can't really see the twist.

I also used a heavier wool than recommended in the pattern because that's all i had. I do love it and will be wearing it come winter.

My Treasures...

I know, i know i have been AWOL for more than a month, its just that i have been taking life easy over the summer holiday. To ease myself back into blogging i thought i would show you some of my summer treasures.

Dorothy Perkins dress from carboot sale and it was a pound

Cath Kidston bag 3 pounds from the same carboot. And it is an original.

And here i am wearing the dress yesterday at one of Master T's friends party. Everything that i wore yesterday was all thrifted at the same carboot sale on different occassions. You cant really see the bangle, necklace and the sandles i am wearing.

I hope everyone enjoyed the summer holiday. Will have to catch up on all the blogs that i follow.
