Boot Sale Bargains

Hi Everyone,
 I would like to show the crafty bargains I pick up from charity shops & Car Boot sales:
I was in doily wonderland....some of these were 10p each.... These were all bought from a Car Boot sale that's held on a Sunday near my home.....





                                          The bag of pearls was £1.00...
One very happy crafter....
Hugs May x x x

These are so gorgeous! The question is, how will you bring yourself to use them? I think I would just get them out each evening, stroke them and gloat!!! Knowing your work, though, May, you will create something superb with them! I am looking forward to seeing whatever you do! Julie Ann xx

10p - right I'm on the next plane home. I know the global financial crisis has hit big time but you've got an absolute bargain - how much to buy a whole house these days??!!
Now to be serious May, how wonderful to think that you now have these beautiful lace and pearls and that you will transform them with love and creativity into something new and exciting - can't wait to see what you get up to.
Have a fun week
