Magpie Monday - Buttermilk bowl

I am joining in with Miss Lizzie and Magpie Monday   I do not usually have much luck in the local charity shop (we live in a village and the shop is really well used and visited) and never seem to find the time to go round the ones in the local towns.  However, today as I was picking up some needle threaders I happened to see this bowl in the window and it really caught my eye.

I loved its shape and the cream buttermilk colour, it curves in all the right places and is perfect to hold my felt balls until I make them into a garland.  In fact MadDad likes the balls in there that he suggested I leave them there, however, the boys thought I should fill it with sweets for them!

Me and My Shadow


  1. Oooh it's lovely!

    I think it looks gorgeous with the felt balls in (although I can see why the boys would prefer sweets to aesthetically pleasing decoration!)

    Thanks for linking up

  2. the balls look fab but so would sweeties

  3. The shape reminds me of a shell - quite seasidey!

  4. Great find. The felt balls do look great in it, but the boys are right...Sweeties all the way! x

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.
