I had a lovely time at my mum's yesterday eve - she's clearing out their loft space and had some of my things stored in boxes which she wanted me to sort through. I found all kinds of things I'd forgotten about like old school reports, books, dolls and jewellery. I even found some crafty bits and much to my very patient other half's dispair brought them home with me. So on my Work desk today are some pressed flowers I came across in the rummage. Now these boxes I sorted through have been at my parents house for about 8 yrs so these flowers are at least that old - amazing that they've stayed as intact as they have and the colours are still lovely.
I don't even have a garden where I live at the moment so I shall enjoy using these. I seem to remember Elizabeth (and Bleubeard of course) had a lovely project using pressed flowers on her blog a while back so I shall have to hunt it out and have a go.
The other things I found included some Victorian scrap sheets - no idea where they came from but they are gorgeous - you can just see the swans in the one propped up on my desk and here are a couple of my fav sheets. Oooh I love new stash -especially when it's rediscovered and free!!!
Happy WOYWW everyone - haven't had much time to blog hop recently but hope to get round and visit more this week - work willing ! Thanks for snooping - Esther xx
