Car boot love..

The car boot season is upon us and its been a chilly start up here in N.Yorkshire.However, the bargains are still to be had.One of the best things is the plant stalls.I have bought some amazing plants over the years for as little as £1 .The same size plants would be nearer £6 at a garden centre.I have spent the afternoon rejigging my herbacious border and am now praying that Country File is wrong about imminent frosts.I also picked up this huge painting for £1.The chatty chap who was selling it from the warmth of his car said 'Make me an offer for less than a pound I just want rid of it.' Well they say that one person's junk is another person's treasure and this person is very happy and gaining a lot of pleasure from looking at it on her wall.Have a good week and a Happy Monday xx

I'll be amazed and flabbergasted if you haven't told a little fib there and your car boot bargain is not actually hanging on your wall but is, in fact, still propped up in the hall! Stranger things have happened though as I did see both you and John working together on your border! Amazing :)

OK, own up, who kidnapped my sister and replaced her with this organised person? I don't know her although I am secretly taking a bit of the credit for spurring her into action :)
