This is.......

.......my best Op shop (charity shop) find ever. So I've actually included 2 because I'm a cheat but you must admit that they are both fab - and both very recent finds too :)

This quilt was bought because I decided to pop into my favourite charity shop ever (it's called Only Foals and Horses*) on a whim and it jumped into my arms and was mine for the measly sum of £1.99! I practically danced back to the car :)


And of course the buttons are included in my favourite op shop finds ever. Because, well just because!

As you might have guessed I am back from London but need time to catch up on things and I'm very busy this week so I might not get the blog updated for a couple of days - we'll see though!

Thanks to Lino Forest for this weeks This is..

*For people who don't know Only Fools and Horses was a very popular sitcom in the UK. I don't like it but I do like the fact that the owners of a local horse sanctuary have used it as a play on words!

First I went Wow over the quilt, then I scrolled down and saw the buttons and my eyes nearly popped out of my head! Did they come like that?
