Bloggers..I have had THE BEST time charity/thrift shopping today..I think the BEST EVER.
Now I must explain, The Wombles were very popular in the 1970s, they were little bear..well Womble type creatures who made use of things other people left behind. I have ALWAYS loved Charity shopping...So I think thats what I am ..a bit of a Womble!
(Image care of Google search!)
Heres my stash I wanted to share with you!
A big box of vintage beer mats. There are so many I don't know what to do with them!
Two more cream little terriers to go with my collection.. woof woof..
A vintage leather Kelly Style Bag...This photo doesn't do it justice.
The most adorable original and very old framed pencil studies of baby birds..A lady actually came up to me in another shop, and she really wanted it too! Mr M has already 'tarted' up the frame for me with our trusty Annie Sloan paint.
Nice pile of clothes... (AKA Womble Chic!) including a TM Lewin shirt which I love, especially as I'm trying to dress like I live in The Hamptons...LOL
So I'm WELL chuffed..also because last night my dear chums Mum...gave me....a
I mean this doesn't happen normally..Its the cutest leather bag, such a pretty colour..I think I can take the handle off as well so I can carry it like a kind of clutch bag too..
So..Mary...THANKYOU VERY MUCH!! if you are reading ...;0) xxxx
Hope you are enjoying the sunshine..Miss Silkiesue has taken to her bed..well I mean 'her' double bed in her I mean our spare bedroom..she actually puts herself to bed under the covers!!
Love Sam xx

Fear not dear Bloggers..if any of you are still popping over..I'm still here!
Goodness me, where are the days wizzing to?
I know in the past some other bloggers have disappeared for a bit, and then appeared again. To be honest sometimes, life just gets too darn busy, and my brain gets all wooly at the best of times, so please forgive me for my absences :0)
Here is a random house purchase, from a lovely shop down in Devon that sells recycled bits and bobs..
We have used them as tie backs..they worked really well! The Shop is called Sea Green of Appledore
I absolutely love it, and can't wait to go back again..Appledore is one of my favorite places.
Now I must mention the Eurovision Song Contest...Looki at lovely Englebert Humperdinck..(I had to be very careful writing that ..!!) Fingers and toes crossed for this Saturday. I have to say I would have loved a bit more of an up tempo song, but his voice is amazing considering he is in his 70's..
GO GO ENGLEBERT..!! I still like to score the songs myself..I know its cheesy !!
So hopefully this time it won't be nearly another month before I blog again!
Roll on the summer and sunshine!
Love Sam xx
