Thrifting

This morning I got up early and went to a flea market in one of the little towns near to where I live. It's the same place I got the Christmas decorations I showed you a few weeks back and I always find lots of goodies whenever I go there. I'm pleased to say that the flea market didn't disappoint and I came home with the following pretty things:
  • a double sized candlewick bedspread (I love these!)
  • a wicker shopping basket
  • a little piece of tapestry that someone had done
  • a pretty tin with flowers on
  • a small basket that I'm going to use in my craft room

If I get my act together I'll try and get some photos up on here later tonight :)

Sounds like a successful day of thrifting, look forward to the pictures!

BTW, I had the same tooth problem many years ago, the calcified roots. Only I had a terrible dentist and ended up struggling with this tooth for about 25 years. Even my current dentist called it the Tooth from Hell! Finally came out last summer and I now have a lovely and very expensive bridge, but what an improvement. So get that sucker out of there, you'll never look back! ;o)

I like the sound of your things, I hope you do get some photos up!

By the way I think toothache is catching, a niggle earlier has fast become a horrible pain :( I've taken some Alka Seltzer XS (even though it was disgusting!) because it has both paracetamol AND aspirin in it. Tried flossing as it really hurts between two back teeth and that made it worse and bleed yikes. Don't think I'm registered with a dentist any more either, argh!
