Little charity shop finds from the past few weeks

Here are some little treasures I picked up in the localy charity shops.
We do have soooo many, quite a few are local based charity shops others are the well known 'high st' ones.
All have different things on offer, some mainly clothes and books but the little independant ones usually have the things I love.
Two balls of debbie bliss wool for 50p,..yes 25p a ball.
The two little ornaments which still have the makers name on stickers underneath which is idea where these were made but they are so is my Son and one my Daughter... daft arent I?? these so much even though the hair colours on them don't represent the colours of my childrens hair!

I live near the town centre so its quite easy to pop into the shops, also working shifts means that I can have a mooch in the morning before I go to work on a late shift or after when I'm on early shifts.
I'll post some more bits and bobs another day! xxx
Having a cool week off work so off to have some soup to warm me up!


  1. Love your little pot people :) x

  2. The little people are just so gorgeous! The wool was a great find too!

  3. Always wonderful when you can get yarn at a great price. And those little figurines look similar to Hummels. Very cute indeed. Have a great weekend. :) tammy

  4. Hello Heather!
    I visited you too but knew you were waiting until you have made somethings to update!

    I am sooooo jealous about the Debbie Bliss.... it is $14/ball here in NZ!

I am HUGE charity shop scourer and to find Debbie Bliss yarn is a heavenly treat...I am turning green with envy. I look forwardto seeing all your new makes xox

About Me

My photo
Hello and thanks for visiting me. I'm Heather and this is all so new to me. I am a big big fan of other peoples blogs. I love all things quirky and different in my life and my home, mixing the vintage and the new together. Having mastered the basics of crochet mainly through the internet and a lovely lady who had the time to sit down and show me just how it was done I am now quite addicted. However I need to learn how to stop skipping from one project to another! I'll share my 'projects' with you and my love of vintage crochet and knitting patterns that I hope to upload onto here. I am also quite a big fan of charity shops and will share my little finds with you too. Lots of blogs have inspired me to do one of my own I hope you can come back and have a sneaky peek at 'whats occuring' in my life! Heather xxx
