bargains in yorkshire!

Taryn and I went for a quiet day out in Skipton on Saturday. It was the hottest day all week, the market was on, it was a bank Holiday weekend, and there was a longboat festival on, so we shared the town with what felt like about ten million other people! still managed to get into a cafe for cool drinks and sandwiches, and squeezed through bits of the market until we got to the charity shop end of the town - look what I found!!! this was £4.50 - had to double check with the guy behind the counter, then carry it back to the car, it weighed a tonne but was worth it, I love it! SSB was unimpressed, and said he would continue to use the toilet, should the urge take him in the night.Same shop, found this gorgeous white work linen table cloth - £1 - it greeves me that someones hard work is only sold for a £1, but really glad I found it all the same! So Taryn and I left Skipton, windows down in the car, and singing erasure's 'chorus' at the top of our lungs. hehehe, one of those mother daughter moment! the cheesier the better we say!
OK - today I have been mostly working on my doll for the doll swap - I have in fact got it finished, but it isn't ready to post off here are some sneaky peeks. Hope I haven't given too much away!

what could it be????

Skipton on a Bank Holiday weekend are you insane! But the sing song on the way home sounds good!

If I were you I would subscribe to CL right now as the cup or should I say mug & saucer make a really good cuppa!

The elephants in your last post are great!

Ohhh I love Skipton. Your finds are fab, especially the table cloth, cute dolly too!!
PS I love Erasure and when I'm driving & listening Mr Twigs just rolls his eyes and groans - I think secretly he likes them.
