Squirrelling gone too far. This is the naughty cupboard today, I'm meant to be sorting it out and lots has to go, ready for when the car boot starts . The best one is always in a field with the sun shining . people selling flowers, homemade jam and lots of china finds. So as soon as the field is dry we will head to Rousden, Dorset our local car boot. The trick is to sell more than I bring back. I'm sure we all have a squirrel cupboard and I'm not alone.
This post is for the bloggers Eclectic Handmade, Green Orchid, and Liniecat who seem to like my squirrels. They were lucky finds I've just looked under the squirrels bottoms ! they are made by Sylvac
Well if you like these you will love the blog Vanillia Squirrel - thanks for commenting. ps my knitted Acorn badges are on folksy.

You lovely bloggers out there are very good at showing your homes which I love to see, so I thought it was time to show you a corner or two of mine, as its only fair. We live in a large building that's very old and was used for dancing and receptions many, many years a go. So we have very high ceilings and big rooms with lots of light. This is a tidy corner of the kitchen with a toy shelf I made a curtain for.
I Planted up this pot with forget-me-nots for the bedroom.
