What a glorious weekend of summer sunshine we had here in London! Mr Crafty and I spent Sunday at Battersea Carboot Sale getting rid of some of the vast quantity of junk that, as a right pair of hoarders, we have managed to accumulate over the years. After the usual mad rush of house clearance vultures asking for mobile phones and gold jewellery we settled down to a steady trickle of buyers and had a rather nice day of it sitting in the sun:
I was a little concerned that I might bring home as much as I went with but I managed to stay strong and made only one purchase. After my previous post this fella just had to come home with me:
Ok - you got me! There are clearly dayglo yellow plastic cups and plates in this rather butch tartan lined hamper rather than the pretty vintage crockery that I was eulogising about previously but it makes smile and, thanks to a bit of nifty haggling by Mr Crafty, was a mere £8 so just slightly less than the very beautiful Life's a Picnic hampers.
It also fits in with our new plan to do a bit of retro style camping in Sussex for our forthcoming first wedding anniversary. We are hoping to track down a second hand, old-school frame tent and kit ourselves out with a camping stove and some 70s style floral deckchairs. I want to tart the tent up with some bunting and solar powered fairy lights and the plan is to see our anniversary in with fish'n'chips and a glass of champers!
