Hello Dear Reader,
I've had another wonderful day here on planet earth. I haven't left my own doorstep, I haven't spent any money and yet, I've had a fantastic day. A fellow blogger and her charming husband are on holiday in this area and came to see me for coffee this morning (well a pot of tea actually).
As you would expect, I whizzed up some cherry shortbread biscuits and a few mini-fruit cakes with minutes to spare.
The results proved popular and saved me the trip to the shop for some sweet treats and both took about ten minutes to prepare from scratch and twenty minutes to cook. All ingredients from my fridge and store cupboard. (yes! I know the time is wrong on the oven...........it doesn't bother me)
If you read my blog on Monday, you'll remember that I had a charity shop rummage and bought a single bed headboard cover for 50p. I bought it for the sturdy and cheerful fabric.
Today it was up-cycled into a bag. I also finished eighteen table napkins from one of the table clothes I bought from ebay last year - some twenty linen items for 99p! I've lots of plans for the rest of them!
Here's the finished bag, which is lined and the contrasting fabric which I've used to decorate and make the straps from, was bought for £1 from a car boot sale last year. I've yards of it spare and made an apron last year and I've plans for the rest of it.
How was your day on planet earth? How's your 'no spending'? I love to hear from you xxxx
Love Froogs xxxx
