And I only went to buy ribbon!

I went into my local craft store today...Bear Cottage Crafts, only to buy some ribbon for my stitch a book, maybe I got excited when I saw Anni Downs' fabric had just arrived or that everything I had been wanting for a long time to decorate at home was now on sale...but I was sooo naughty and bought heaps!lol!


The flowers in the vase (gosh artificial flowers are so life-like these days) and lamp were purchased
Another lamp for the bedroom...not the greatest pic but it really is beautiful!
Anni Downs' fabrics (of course, how could I resist) and the basket which was only $12
This 2 tiered basket...handy for the sewing room. Another square vase, as I don't seem to have many vases and ceramic bird thermometre for only $5, Sorry have no pic of these and...
Of course my ribbon! lol! I am slowly starting to decorate our house as I have always wanted since our renovations...it is happening slowly (Maybe a bit quicker after today! lol)
I have included a pic of all my crochet motifs, as I thought all the colours looked pretty together!
Enjoy your week! I hope you find some time to be naughty too! he he!

It's good to be naughty sometimes! The lamp and flowers look very good together. Your crochet colours are lovely too, and everything of Anni's is irresistible.

I have been shopping today too but not housey things. I did wander into a patchwork shop and added a few fat quarters to the basket. Lovely pieces you have nought and you know I love your flowers in all their forms.
