Car Boot Sale and some Jammy Biscuits

Hello everyone...

I was chuffed to bits a few days ago when I spotted this set of blue stripey crockery in a charity shop. It is not the true proper Cornishware that I completely adore and have always wanted a complete set of everything of... it actually says Tesco on the bottom, but the beauty is that I got everything for a bargainous £7.50! That's 4 dinner plates, 4 bowls, 2 bigger bowls and 4 mugs...much better than what the other plates that we have had for ages...

To celebrate I have made some lovely jammy biscuits to go with them which I would highly recommend because they are delicious and SO easy and quick, especially if you whizz them in a food processer. The recipe can be found here

Last weekend I went to the Battersea Car Boot Sale with my fellow bargain hunter pal from Faith, Hope and Charity Shopping. (Who is a huge appreciator of all things vintage and is very good at spotting bargains!)

That particular Sunday afternoon, it was raining - not just a little bit but constant cold rain that didn't stop at all... however, we braved the elements and did not even have an umbrella between us - how hardcore is that!?

So it was not as busy as usual however I did pick up a few little treausures...

A 'Golden Shred' pepper pot for 50p...

A lovely candle holder with a handle and little compartment at the side to hold matches... this was £2

A sweet rabbit ornament, for free! (The nice car boot lady added it to the bag when we bought some gorgeous jam pots for £5...)

And a Poole Pottery egg cup for 50p...

I also bought a couple of skirts which were made of colourful fabric which a hope to use for a sewing project of some sort - haven't decided what yet!

I hope that you are all having good weekends!
