My man dragged me out to two car boot sales yesterday.
My plan was to clean the house, which really needed to be
done since I've been busy with craft projects the last week.
Since it's the end of the season for boot sales we didn't find
that much stuff. This is just some of the finds though...

My favorite find is the soup container, I first thought it was
Swedish but after closer inspection I noticed that it's of an
English make.
The guy who sold it to me told me it was from his mother
and she bought it in the 1960's.

I got plans for the flowery dress.
It's a Laura Ashley dress that's not so very flattering at the
top so I'm gonna turn it into a skirt instead.

After the boot sale we went to out favorite restaurant and
afterwards we went to my father in law.

Everything except the flowery dress is from the 50's/60's.

Dresses, £2 & 50 pence.

Soup container, 50 pence.

Cassette case, 50 pence.

Gosh where do you carboot to find such cute things, the ones round by me are rubbish. I would never find a vintage dress, let alone a laura ashley one!! Good going. The soup container is very cool!!

We do some of the ones in Hertfordshire.
I just loved the flower pattern on the LA dress, it's not cute as a dress but it's gonna be wonderful as a skirt.
The soup container is so cute that my toes go numb. :))
