Thankful Thursday

A mixed bag of things to be thankful for...

Some sewing accessories, trim & fabric plus a ball of wool at reduced prices - most at least 50% off.  I needed some more press studs and needles and the Christmas fabric will come in handy later on in the year.  The wool is already currently 'on the needles'.  

A lovely yellow jug, a 'just because' purchase, yellow being one of my favourite colours (yes I have more than one!)  I thought this would be useful for custard.

I believe this dates to around the 40s and 50s from what I have been able to find out, but I could be wrong.

A cute fun mechanical watch - yes an actual wind up watch in great condition found in the local charity shop.  I have been wanting a 'tick tock' watch for ages.

The lovely Stanley, who is growing into a beautiful dog with a lovely nature.


  1. Great collection of wonderful purchases. I wish I could find a wind up watch,used to have a Mickey Mouse one. Stanley is a very hansome young man.

  2. What lovely finds at bargain prices! Love your little pretty will look perfect for pouring custard.
    Stanley is so cute, very handsome!

  3. Stanley is a fine looking dog!!
    I like that cream coloured jug. It will be perfect for custard.
    Which makes me want some. Maybe I'll make some tomorrow!!

  4. The jug is the same as one we had at home (actually one in blue and one in yellow) when I was a child.
