Magpie Monday - Granny Crochet

Now, I know I can make these granny blankets myself but when I spotted these beauties neatly folded up in my local charity shop, I quickly put them in my basket. They were a bargain for £1 each. They will be perfect for my summer house.


I've been keeping my eyes peeled for a 1930's mirror on a chain for the summer house and was thrilled when I picked this one up for £3.


As some of you know, I cant resist a retro flask. I already have two exactly the same as this one and they are great for days out to guarantee my caffeine fix. I love that this one still has its groovy label. This one was only £1.

  1. Ooooh, I want to come and LIVE in your summer house!!

    £1 each for those blankets is incredible, when you consider the hours and hours of work that went into them.

    Thanks for linking up x

  3. Aren't you a lucky duck Mama! Those granny rugs are just gorgeous. I can't believe you got them for that price. I picked up two from a local car boot sale a couple years ago for $6 each and I was wrapped. The amount of work that's gone into them is just priceless in my eyes.
