Well the white stuff arrived

Well the white stuff arrived

 And I am really not happy about it because I already fell and hurt myself on Wednesday.
I managed to fall down the stairs so have been feeling sorry for myself ever  since!

Bags, Bags and more bags

Bags, Bags and more bags

Not hand bags I am a shoe girl! but that's another post.
Let me explain.

I hate carrier bags so have a big collection of bags for life. Which I keep in the boot of my car and on the back of the basement door I use them for everything lunches shopping holiday bags.   I nipped out this morning and the shop I wanted was closed so I pooped into B&M bargains and found this beauty and all for 99p I was so happy its lovely. This will be my beach bag next month when we go on holiday!!
I then nipped into the Red Cross and look what they had.

Oh I am so happy it really doesn't take much.

Painted Furniture

Painted Furniture

I was looking for something to hang coats in and hide bags and shoes in the hall. I can across this for £20.00 in this  charity shop.

I use it a lot for work and like to help them out as they work with the homeless.


I forgot to take before pictures. I used Creamery from the little Green paint company.

A gift basket for a cat and Coffee lover!!

A gift basket for a  cat and  Coffee lover!!

I had to put a little gift together for a work colleagues birthday today. I had to gather what I had in and around at 06.30 this morning,she's a coffee lover so don't think I did to bad do you?
I had some nice instant  coffee in and I always have a surplus of cups as I buy them all the time and never use them. I had bought these at Christmas and was going to put sachets of hot chocolate in them little  marshmallows and chocolate spoons but I forgot. Good job really. :-)) I have taken the photo before I wrapped it in fancy cellophane so you can see the contents.
