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

Dumping the tumble dryer and Ecoforce giveaway

We have a tumble dryer, but it broke before christmas and we  couldn't afford to get it repaired, so I have been managing with an old fashioned wooden clothes rail and hanging bedding over the doors to dry, This last would of weeks however, I have been hanging the washing outside and it has been drying much quicker and with less creases, so I am going to take the plunge and instead of getting the dryer replaced I am going to give it away. Ecoforce heard me on twitter bemoaning the fact that I was chasing laundry round the garden as my pegs were not working and very kindly sent me some of their Ecoforce pegs to try and they have been fab. So in conjunction with Ecoforce I have a year's supply of green cleaning and washing up wonder products worth £50 comprising the following: EcoForce Peg Basket x 1 EcoForce Clothes Line x1 EcoForce Pegs x 2 packs Several of each of: EcoForce sponges, scourers, cloths, duster and bag grips Dishmatic Dishmatic Refills x
