On the way I was asked what I would be looking for, I call it 'the Fear' like the Lily Allen song. So I merrily trotted off a list of 'no more brooches, I have enough, no more sparkly necklaces, I have enough (that's a blog post for another time) and no more table-cloths'.
That worked until I spied this little beauty across the bonnet of a car.
The two pillowcases are in perfect condition and were 20p, for heaven sake what can you buy for 20p these days. So all in all three super little items, with cash left over from my £5 budget and we still managed an afternoon walk into Broadstairs. It was all very busy there but I am more of a Jazz girl, so not really my scene.
My muffin making also knows no bounds and these were whipped up whilst listening to show tunes on Radio 2 with EP. My first savoury recipe, Feta, Cheddar & Chive from this book Picnics by David Herbert.
My technical director and editor-in-chief suggested the next time I make these I should crumble the feta rather than chop it. Good suggestion but if you are not mad on feta, chopped pieces mean you can fish them out and still enjoy a good cheesy muffin.
Yummy days xxx
Sounds lie a successful day - and the boot fair came in under budget! Hope you visited the ice cream parlour in Broadstairs. It holds loads of happy memories for me (don't ask - I was very young at the time!!!).ReplyDelete
Aw I got that little dog's brother recently, but he's standing up ... looks like Cath Kidston's Stanley. Lovely buys, and muffins look gorgeous! xxxReplyDelete
Oh my I have a some sheets that match your pillowcase....hrifted of course! I too am a little bit like you a middle of the aisle woman....not been to a car boot in a very long time.Love the tablecloths and I've got too many ( I don't use them anyway so will be having a proper good sell soon xxReplyDelete
Thank you for your lovely comments. I do use the table-cloths but the are quickly whipped off before we eat. My favoured ice-cream parlour is Pelosi. I had a Campari & orange cone there last week and it was mighty fine.ReplyDelete
Love the sheets! Ada :)ReplyDelete
