Well I had been thinking about that wooden sewing box all evening so first thing this morning I googled the shop to get their telephone number so I could ring and make sure it was still there. I discovered on my google search that the charity shops web page had a section labelled 'Complaints and Compliments' - where you can put down your thoughts on the shop -lol! I can't comprehend that someone would go to the trouble to complain about the charity shop, but maybe there are such people...so to even it out I left them a lovely compliment and hopefully it will be passed onto the store.
I phoned the shop....the sewing box had been sold :o( I am a person who believes in fate and therefore I obviously wasn't meant to have that fabulous sewing box but I hope it gives the buyer plenty of enjoyment.
So I went to my family do loaded with the cupcakes - they came out good for my first attempt and I heard plenty of 'mmmm' noises when they were being eaten, another batch has been requested lol:
SO whats the 'Silver Lining'... Well at my aunts house she had a couple of bags of good left over from a table top sale and so said that I could have any items I fancied - no sooner had the bag been tipped out then I saw this little lot:
Then I also spied this:
There was also some lovely toys for my son which he has already made soggy with his gums! So I may have lost out on the sewing basket but I made up for it with free scrummy goodies :o)
P.S Loo of Jumbles and pompoms fame - if you see one in the skip again rescue it from its crushed fate for me :o) lol x
