Thanks everyone for all your comments on my last post, much appreciated!
And the crochet squares are indeed, as Little Blue Mouse suggested, destined to be made into a box - to hold a square box of tissues. Something pretty with a nod to usefulness! I only have one square left to do. Will post some pics when it is done.
In and amongst my rather chaotic life I sometimes get time for a little browse around our local Flea Market, which is held each Friday in our market place.
And as I was browsing I happened to come across this
I don't know the technical name for it but to me it is a folding workbox. And it is so spacious inside, lots of room for buttons...
Here it is fully opened (excuse the kitchen paraphernalia in the background!)
I love the fact that it is so nice to look at, but also very pleasing to use. And it was very cheap too - bonus!!
What has been your most recent thrifty treasure? I would love to hear about it!
