Pretty Worthless Giveaway

Its Jumble Sale season !!! my favourite time of the year , before the car boot sales start . So I  trotted off to the scout hut in Lincoln last week for a cats sale last week, these are always amazing cheap and so varied it can be a little surreal, I spent a whole £1 on a cushion and 3 articles of clothing , one to cut up for patchwork ,one to unravel for the wool in a virulent lime green and one summer wear in the garden dress that my OH viewed with total horror point is that its these little things that make me happy .
Then it was pop into the Bridge Community Venue and i had to bring these home

Victorian and Edwardian are so unloved these days that this pair of pink and pretty were just pennies , sat among normal everyday dishes , now I cant become a plate collector , I have a drawer full in the filling cabinet already and we havent had a giveaway on this miserable blog forever .
So lets give away a pair of pretty pink romantic transfer ribbon plates , how do you enter may you ask ?  Its so simple, just comment , we will draw a winner by the scientific method of munchkin and dish on Sunday 19th March .
  Doesnt matter where in the world you are , we will post them to you , but it may be buy some weird super cheap postal method , like making Young Baldrick cycle there , so dont expect them tomorrow .

On a plus note theres a scout jumble sale at Lincoln Birchwood scout hut today which I cant make . And a Church Jumble at Tetford  this afternoon , a flyspeck in the Wold that i have had to look up on maps that i want to go to but i need  Maybe I should charge them for doing their washing?

  2. Pretty plates, I am sure someone will find a good home for them.

  3. Those plates have such lovely storybook air about them!
    Back in the day I would have been tempted by such bargin treasures too.

    Now I am slowly giving my acquired cheapness treasures away to young women starting or in some cases restarting homes on similar sparse cash as I had.
    I hope they find an appreciative home for them.

  4. Katie, I am sure you will find these a good home. I love your generous spirit. A chance to go bargain treasure hunting with you would be so much fun. I have a couple of friends (we all
    search for different things) I enjoy going to the sales with. Here's hoping you are off to a great season of "finding". Marie
