We were all up and at 'em relatively early - no loafing in bed til 10 for me, no gyming til 10:30 for OH and no faffing around in PJs in front of Cartoonito all morning for little 'un.
We managed to get to the boot sale at 10am rather than our normal lunchtime Slack Alice approach, and boy were there bargains to be had!
We came home with tonnes of goodies, but most of them are still being washed and scrubbed. However, I'll show you these favourites now, and you'll just have to excuse the grime.
I spotted this vintage wicker basket under someones table. I loved the shape which reminds me of creel fishing baskets and the vintage plasterwork strawberry motif. It cost me a pound and will be perfect for potting on my self-set strawberry suckers. I think it will make a nice pressie for a vintage lover next spring, all planted up.
I also found this huge and heavy clay shortbread mold, complete with its box and recipe book. Also a pound, how pretty will my shortbread be now?
After dropping off our stash at home, we hit the road and headed down to London for the gorgeous Lucy's birthday party. A joyous affair, with cream scones; bunting; singing; chilling and welly wanging in the garden.
How utterly ace is the blogging and Twitter world, that you can meet a kindred spirit and turn it into a real-life friendship, and to be welcomed into her vintage-tastic home and the bosom of her family was just the best.
