We've spent a glorious week at Liss Ard in West Cork, and I pretty much managed to totally switch off. It was long overdue!
Firmly back in Blighty now, I needed to get my junk fix - Mr O'Leary and his Ryanair crew wouldn't permit me to bring home thrifty hauls unless I paid a whopping excess baggage charge, so I had to leave some Irish charms behind.
Saturday we went to a good old fashioned British jumblie and boy was it a brutal affair. I managed to force myself to the front and snaffled a few goodies.
A whole stash of fabric, some of which is vintage Heal's (squeals!).
A cute box of mini wooden dominoes for crafting purposes.
A selection of hurricane lamps/jars for Christmas decorating lushness. I'm thinking: moss; pine cones and pure white church candles...
It was worth the bruises!
Over a cup of tea and a slice of cake, I got talking to a lovely girl who totally gave me the lowdown on buying and selling on Facebook and told me which local groups to join. I can't wait to check that out, and kick fee paying to Ebay and Paypal into touch. So all in all, a good Saturday's work!
