I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing Sunday afternoon. For me Sunday has always been a day to re-charge my batteries, no wandering around shopping centres or food shopping for me, I like nice quiet Sunday's, sometimes I cook a roast other times, like today, we will have something quick and easy later in the evening. This morning I have done the ironing and had a lovely soak in the bath and caught up on a bit of reading, bliss :-)
I have been watching a few podcasts again and recently Sam, of Betsy Makes mentioned something she had subscribed to, A Hook and a Book, I thought it sounded interesting so went in search and signed up for the June parcel.
The idea is each month you receive a hook, a book, a ball of yarn and a pattern, which is sort of themed to the book
This is what was in my parcel when it arrived earlier this week.
Isn't it a great package! I was very happy with it. I've never read The Hobbit and I don't know if it will be too much in the realms of fantasy for me but I'm going to give it a go. It's such a lovely little hard backed book too with lovely illustrations. Have you read The Hobbit? What did you think?
I had a wander around the charity shops after work on Friday and came away with a couple of good finds.
This chicken caught my eye. I did have a lovely Masons chicken to keep my eggs in but it got broken when we had the kitchen done recently. This one is not so eye catching but I think It fits perfectly in with my new kitchen colours :-)
I've seen these vintage cake stands in many places and Mark has always put me off buying one, but this time he wasn't with me, so home it came, lol.
It's in great condition and will come in very handy when we have Joanne afternoon tea baby shower :-)
I'm really happy with this purchase. I don't know if I should just give it a good polish and keep it this colour or should I give it an Anne Slone make over? What do you think?
That's it for today, I hope you have a great week whatever you are up too.
Until next time
