Holidays and treasure

Back from our holiday in France we are rested and relaxed. We had a lovely time and the weather was a little hot some days but we just stayed in the shade. It was mostly a beach and pool holiday so we didn't do much treasure hunting but we did find some old French books at a night market i bought them for the picture obviously. I am not that good at French although one is a French dictionary.

We visited our favourite island the Ile De Re and had a donkey ride, a shop around the town and a lovely meal.

In total contrast the kids and I went to the bootsale today. I gave little OB two golden coins to spend and he purchased a army land rover and a pair of Walkie talkies he was over the moon. I was equally happy but had to spend a lot more golden coins. 

A new washing basket

A doll's cot

And this wonderful piece of barkcloth. It's similar colours to the blanket that I have just finished. I think it's destined to be a new bag.
