Fancy that!

I can't believe almost a week has gone since I posted anything on my blog - it is amazing how you can fill your time and sometimes feel like you haven't actually done that much, but then on reflection you have achieved more than you thought!

My little e-bay shop is doing quite well, but I have to admit my mothers wardrobe has supplied most of what I have sold so far. She is addicted to clothes shopping, and hiding her purchases from my dad in their original packing with the labels - it has proved a little gold mine, and she reckons I have enough to keep me in business for the next 6 months!

I have been very industrious in the sewing room making things for my Folksy shop - nothing sold to date but I did feature on someones 'Folksy Friday' which was a total buzz!

While pottering away in the sewing room my mind fills with ideas and wonderful things to blog - unfortunately I don't make a note of them so consequently can't remember what the idea was! I bet I am alone in this...who am I kidding!

Lots of my Grandma's favourite pearls of wisdom keep popping in there as well, so to help you through the long bank holiday weekend here are a few of them...

"If I had a new feather, would my old hat do?"

Only the mugs get used - the best china stays on the shelf

Do your best - more than that even Angels can't do

Look after your hands - they are precious - and one day they will look after you!

No photo's from me today - the weather has reminded my of my love of Fancy Birds - and other people do them so well!

How I wish my Mum was still here. She would come up with Pearls of Wisdom like this too. No clothes hiding in the closet though!

I like your blog, so I've left you a vote on the Little Blog Awards. x
