Glorious Loot Day5!

This is my favourite loot so far! Mothers day gifts, Harry and Jack put lots of effort into their cards and wrapping paper, they bought the gifts from the Mothers day stall at school, don't you love the pen?? Jack has already planted and watered the seeds that he bought me, I love his little drawings!! Happy Mothers Day to all of the Mums out there, Enjoy!! Leah

Glorious Loot day4

Hello, here is one of my recent Op shop finds. This tablecloth had 4 crochet ladies on it and was free as it also had a burn on it, which is fine, because I didn't mind cutting it up, since it was damaged! I have made a sweet lavender sachet with one already, I forgot to take a photo and I have given it as a gift. There is some gloriously gift wrapped loot sitting beside my little Jack's bed at the moment and it's a Mothers day gift for me. I will share that after I open it tomorrow. Enjoy your weekend! Leah
