More opp shop finds

 As Im on afternoon shift I have a short time in the morning to opp shop , all these items I will be reselling in my ebay store although I do love this vintage tablecloth made in Poland, it looks like it has never been used
 I found these items in one opp shop which is located very close to home and it has to be my favorite little opp shop.

 The little strawberrys on this apron are embroided.
 Beautiful little vintage book with some fantastic recipes which I need to sit down and have a good look at before I decide to sell.
 A beautiful hand crocheted cardi from Ireland

Lovely little retro cream jug which think I will keep to display flowers in.
Hope everyone has a great day xx

Vintage cookbooks

As everbody may know I love to oppshop I pick up all sorts of things that can be of interest, often I find vintage cook books so I thought I would include some photos of a few I have picked up

Savory Impossible pie

It was a lovely day today I pottered around the house, vacuuming, dusting, mopping, I know Im strange but I do like housework I like the feel of it once its done and the house is spotless.
The spring cleaning is coming along slowly but its still happening , on the weekend I got rid of an old trampoline , a basket ball ring the kids wernt using and an old greenhouse that I dont use , I put an add in the local free cycle and they all were picked up on the weekend, yay extra space.
I think I may go through the shed on weekend and see what else I can put on free cycle its a very handy way of getting rid of what you dont use.

Dinner was Savory Impossible pie
5 eggs
1 onion chopped
2 rashers bacon
cherry tomatoes
grated carrot
1 cup sr flour
2 cups milk
parmesan cheese
fetta cheese cut up

mix everything together, place in pie dish
Nice easy meal
handy for my lunch to take to work

 Then outside to do a bit of gardening with my gardening companions

 Poor bunny the dog kept trying to ride him and Nala followed him everywhere but he didnt mind at all he loved all the attention

 Starting to layer my new vege beds with newspaper and twig prunings from the apple tree

 The girls cages were cleaned we do this once a week with eveyrthing being returned to the gardens

 I had some horse poo delivered to go onto the new beds
Whilst Im outside working away, India is inside working away at this mess.

Today was one of those days where I feel like I got absolutely nothing done, I got the vacuum out still didnt vacuum, I put the chairs on the table I didnt mop, I didnt even get to make the beds aaaaaagh I hate going out of the house with out making beds.
I have items to list on ebay I didnt get that done.
What I did get done was a batch of biscuits, chicken and corn soup for tea { whoops I forgot Indy is trying to become vegetarian hence she had left over gnocci}.
Oh I planted two plum trees.
Oh and my front yard what a mess I had two trees cut down which had self sowed and now there are branches all over the place, so my weekend is to be spent doing yard work and cleaning this house.

 We love banana smoothies and tonight was little different as we added choc icecream so we had choc banana smoothies, quite tasty.
We always keep frozen bananas in the freezer for this treat.
I dont add icecream often as the frozen banana makes it nice and thick we vary the recipe sometimes I add yoghurt , we always add honey and nutmeg
I love honey I cant wait to get some bees, that is on the to do list
A beekeeping course.
Hope everyone has a great weekend x

 A couple of vege planters I had made up out of recycled pallets, I plan on moving them closer and putting paths around them. The yard will slowly be coming along I have plans and its getting there slowly.

 Flowers on the broad beans
 The babes are growing into bundles of cuteness and they are just so friendly running up to the door when its feed time, oooooh I love them. I do hope one is a little girl I will be tempted to keep it.
 My potting area just planted a lot of sweet pea seeds tonight I hope they come along nicely. I really need to get a lot more plants into the garden.
