This week I've been mostly thrifting

FROM THE BIG LADS MA'S ATTIC!!
Hello!
Yesterday was I had my stall at That Vintage Vibe fair, we had a fun day, it was Belfast Pride and a sunny day so lots of people about in town and we made enough money to cover the stall and buy the big lad a Dominos pizza, so pretty happy, I'll tell you all about it tomorrow!
Last Sunday we were invited up to the big lads mums house, with a free licence to root around in her attic and take whatever we wanted! Red flag to a bull comes to mind! I LOVE HOKING IN PEOPLES LOFTS!!! The big lad found all his old Lego, and a couple of other treasures, here's what we brought home....
A new bud for wee Ted!
The big lad's Liverpool shirt from 1989, fits me perfectly! We're going to see them play in a couple weeks, I'll wear this to the match, the shorts are a bit much, I've worn them out on a run though and they're pretty cool!

I had Friday off and headed down to my parents house to borrow my da's pasting table, I couldn't resist calling into some of my favourite thrift shops on the way and I went a little crazy and panic bought more stuff! For the stall so that makes it ok, ok?
And my from my sister, a vintage dress I've loved for years, she's finally given it to me! All I need now is another sunny day, too bad it's raining again today!!

You thought I was finished? I also thrifted some very pretty bed linen, it's single bed size, with two pillow cases, so I'm using the duvet cover for crafts and keeping the pillow cases to use. I love the vintage floral pattern and the pretty colours.

 And that's it for this week, I'm all thrifted out!
Have a lovely Sunday everyone! xx
