I hope everyone is having a lovely Easter weekend? and its as sunny & warm where you as it is here in Suffolk. A lovely weekend so far - we've been out in 2's, 3's & even a 4! The boys are attempting a world record in how many easter eggs they can consume in a 48 hour period - least it means the chocolate mouse won't find any lurking in the cupboard next week when they are back at school ;)
Sadly all that is left of these 2 is their little gold bells - being worn by the boys on their wrists - least it means I can hear where they are!!
Someone asked on my last post what a diabolo was - well its 2 sticks connected by a piece of string which you use to juggle an eggtimer shaped piece of plastic - or something very similar to that. Little son has been busy practising whenever he's had a chance this weekend;
Up in the air
Catch it and get it spinning fast again
Throw it up in the air again - repeat until you drop it and then start again!!
We visited a massive carboot sale this morning (well 3 of us did). I've never so many stalls in my life and we didn't quite get round them all - the ones we did see had a few pretties on them;
A jug to match the plate from my last post.
Two pretty cups to turn into pincushions at some point. I can always find odd saucers but odd cups are hard to come by.
Its been a busy weekend for birthdays - yesterday was my little brothers turn (actually he just turned 24 and is not so little anymore) - tomorrow its the turn of my closest sister. When I was blog hopping a few days ago, I found something lovely on Lakota's blog - I just knew that it would be perfect for my sister. Sadly the necklace was out of stock but they had a ring in the same design;
I am glad her birthday is tomorrow - if it had to hang around any longer, I just know I'd end up keeping it for myself. Its so apt for her as she's the Deputy Manager of a charity shop in town.
As well as a few thrifted treats and that ring, I've also made her something too. Like me she loves things hanging from every handle/hook;
Upcycled ribbon, some vintage linen (too damaged to keep whole) and some red gingham.
Lastly I've just got to tell everyone the best news - I've won a giveaway - over @ Jackie's. I've won a bear especially made for me :) I can't tell you how excited I was when I read that post - in fact my happiness may have included a small happy dance!!
Right I'd best be off - I've roast pork in the oven - suppose I ought to sort some veggies to go with that!!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
