Unexpected Post and some treasures from the attic..

Well today started wonderfully..its Sam's birthday so its cards and unwrapping first thing.He got some lovely gifts and money as well..we didn't really know what to get him..so we bought him a huge plant for his bedroom..and we are treating the entire family to a takeaway for tea..not frugal at all but it is a treat.
The postman knocked and as i wasn't expecting anything i was surprised to see a parcel with my name on it..all Ebay buys are addressed to hubby..i was intrigued..couldn't wait to open it..
What a gorgeous surprise was inside..
 Some beautiful stamps and a banner for the girls to make..they are from my friend Gillian(scottishminnie)..she visits America every year..last year she sent the girls some Easter and huge Christmas Stamps..we can't wait to use these..i love the one that says Homemade with Love..that is going to be stamped all over things..Thank you gillian your a star..

 Look at the treasures i found in an old box marked Kitchen..4 smoky glass mugs and not a chip on them..
My old Potato Chipper..still works..its wicked ..and by that i mean evil..its so sharp you could lose a finger or 2 or 3 if your not careful..now i remember why i put it away..i know your fingers don't go any where near the blades but i always worried it would catch my fingers..daft yes i know.
They have both been listed on Ebay..fingers crossed for me ladies.
I also found an old Olympus Camera in padded Camera bag..got all the bits with it..Zoom Lens and all sorts..i am going to have a look at it and see what i can do with it..it takes film rolls..and it has a cannister with it to keep it in..not sure where we got that from..now isn't that shameful..and expensive camera that i can't remember..
right ladies i am off to put my feet up..watch the rugby and have a relaxing night.
take care all

  1. Wow!! A real blast from the past. I used to have those mugs when I first got married to my first husband .... way back in 1978 .... they're virtually antiques!!

    You're finding lots to list on Ebay, good for you :-)
