some thrifty finds and friday flowers


happy Friday!
Have not been around blog land much at all this week, I feel bad that I haven't been doing too much visiting.. but I intend to this afternoon!
I took a few pictures of some pressies my husband brought back for me from England!
Beautiful ruffly bed linen, I love it; its from the RA collection at the house of
has lovely soft ruffles all the way round!

And he also bought me the RA candle; the one with the pretty glass; smells of lillies! yummy!

Here is a pretty linen table cloth I found on my hunts this morning!. (and another union jack cushion I made.  I used the treasures fabric but turned the blue paisley inside out to get a faded look)

A pretty needlework...

I think this colour of roses is probably my favourite; love how they get paler; almost white at the outside edge!

Hubby also brought me back the lovely crown mugs; on for me, one for him; (red one is in the dishwasher I think)

                     I love them but my only complaint is that they are so wide, the water cools so fast;

This little vase was another find; I just love the colour.

I made a little drink cover from lace and some little glass and wooden beads for weight on the corners..  Really it is for bottles when you are outdoors so that flies and bugs cant get into the top! 

Seb made some jelly smoothie cups yesterday; just about to try one!  not too sure; but he loved them and so did his little friend.  They didn't seem to mind that they were pink and in loveheart jelly moulds!

I had a picture also to show you of the bday cake I made for my son Sam... but I am using my husbands computer and the image is on my laptop which my son is using! don't you looove school holidays!!!?!
Hope that everyone is well.  I will draw the winner of the Union jack Throw tomorrow; good luck to those who entered!
thanks for visiting! xxx
