ah yes indeedy! we are mixing it up a little dearest readers...
we are not ones to be dull and predictable,
we crave excitement and an element of surprise
and i can't think of anything more exciting and surprising than to take
and make it
("oh Tif" i hear you exclaim "how simply thrilling, ney exciting, ney surprising of you, you clever thing"
"why thanking you kindly" i reply "i aim to please")
but before we delve into what 'devilishly exciting' thrifty goodness i have acquired of late i must just say i have not been idle this morning.
despite having volumizing hair issues of the worst kind, causing me to be weighed down like i have not been weighed down since the 80's and my perming addiction.
i am delighted to report, that yes indeed, Miss Ethel and i have been getting it on again.
it would appear she is rested and ready for action...
i can also report
my thrifty finds have reached an all time high,
(or low, if you are my man)
not content with my usual cravings
i have now taken to giving lost thermos flasks a home.
then there is the usual attraction to lovely colored fondue pots,
because of course one never knows when suddenly one may wish to 'fondue'.
i was also spoken to recently by a pair of salt and pepper pots.
sporting rather fabby green plastic tops complete with springy hinges...
seriously, how could i ignore their telling beauty
a pair of sticky hooks in wonderful avocado green complete with original packaging.
i have yet to stick them on anything as they are so terribly wonderful i want to be sure to get it right.
and then finally but by no means least
two forsaken little souls...
it's been a while since a true forsaken soul has found me.
but these two had brilliant potential upon perusal,
and so it came to be that
have made themselves at home in mossy shed
my man has noted that i appear to be bringing home way too many waifs and strays for his liking.
dearest readers, i told him he was indeed right, my finds are at a fearfully high quantity of late,
and then i asked him, how does one refuse a little forsaken soul that has the ability to make a wall smile...
i rest my case.
she is thinking that Miss Ethel is sounding a little croaky, she is thinking that may not be good news ~ Tif
