a shabby box, a new cloche & a winner

i don't usually do garage sales, but i'll always visit one put on by a Church.
you never know what you might find.
i could have bought more, but am seriously trying to declutter.
i did purchase some books for my girls and this great old pink shabby box!
i love the colour and all that rusty metal ware.
who knows what i'll use it for, but for $1 it doesn't really matter!
when i got home, i saw this written on the inside.
'Jaimiee's treasure Box'
oh bless!

well now it's Kate's Treasure Box ;)

i also treated myself this week to a new glass 'French Country' cloche.
it was on a ridiculous special and such a nice size.
the hard part is deciding where it will live,
and what will live under it.
i am going to visit a fete up the road later today,
as well as a car boot sale straight after my market trawl tomorrow morning.

hopefully there are more treasures waiting for me!
oh and the winner of my giveaway is a local gal this time!
the winner is dabeier68!
enjoy the weekend everyone ;)
