... I know ... I know I said I'd let you know what my birthday giveaway will be, and I know I said I'd tell you on Friday and it's now nearly Monday but I haven't had a chance since I wrote the last post. It's been such a busy few days - Dairy House on Thursday; shopping on Friday at the Talent for Textiles Fair at the American Museum at Claverton (just outside Bath and a few hundred yards as the crow flies from where H and R married in May); more shopping on Saturday (of the accidental variety) with charity shop finds and an agricultural sale I ended up at after following signs saying "To the Sale". I couldn't just drive by, could I!! And then again today ... MORE shopping at the Vintage Textile & Costume Fair at the Assembly Rooms in Bath.
I took my camera today but I'm afraid you'll have to visit Niki's blog to see photos as I didn't actually take any! We planned to meet for a cuppa but after an hour's intense shopping we bumped into one another and decided early (11.30am) lunch was called for! I think you may get to see what we ate if you go to Niki's in a couple of days' time.
I've taken photos of the haul (well some of it) and it will either be going to Shepton in a fortnight's time or on the website. If in the meantime there's anything you want to know about, please email. Sorry, but the photos below AREN'T the giveaway (not in total at any rate, although there might be something there that will be included!). I'll add a slide show at the bottom rather than lots of individual photos.
I've finally managed to start sorting in earnest, and bought some of those canvas hanging shelves supposedly designed to store jumpers, which loop over a wardrobe rail. They're my new 'aide de sorting' and worked quite well this evening. It's a start ... I can't claim the idea as my own as I've saw someone else using them today. As I had to stop off at Homebase on the way home I rounded off the shopping expedition feeling full of enthusiasm for the task in hand ... which is now becoming urgent as Gillie still has no hope of reaching her bed on Friday as things stand at the moment!
So, in between all the sorting and tidying and labelling etc which I intend to do tomorrow I shall also decide on your prezzie and will endeavour to add the photo and description of the contents on the post entitled "365 days ..." which is where you'll need to add a comment to be eligible for the draw.
