THRIFTING in the kitchen.

I am in love! I have confessed all over the place that I am a lover of the 70s, this is true, as I am in love with Hornsea kitchenware straight from the 70s! I started collecting it last year but luckily in my local boot fair I have picked up two boxes full, so my collection is looking rather good and usable everyday for the whole family.

Yes it's brown and flowery, fantastic!
It's a really hard stoneware so should last forever, the most exciting is that I have reclaimed its life for another generation, now to look out for some more cups and saucers and maybe a tea pot.

DRESSMAKING new project

It seems that lots of people have been taking part in the Me Made Months of something, I was really inspired by Mimi of http:// .
I to think that Me Made June sounds a great idea so I'm taking the pledge too.

'I, Charlotte of sew far sew good , sign up as a participant of Me-Made-June '11. I endeavour to wear an item of my handmade clothing each day for the duration of June 2011'
