pretty finds...

this gorgeous tin I plan to use as a jewellery box could not be more perfect!
handy bits and pieces...
and these sweet old books were a gift from a lady who thought I could put them to good use, perhaps they'll just join my collection to be read & thoroughly enjoyed...
I found this fabulous yarn on a clear out table for 50 cents & immediately could see it was destined for beautiful things.  I love it's texture & I love what it's becoming... 

visit Sophie for more great finds...

  6. Loving all your pretty finds Mel. Very sweet tin...will make a fabulous jewellery box yes! Will you dress it up a bit or leave as is?
    One of my fav things to do is read old annuals or mags with their short stories etc. I could get lost in them! :) x
