Its getting there

Easter is quiet for us we just buy two Easter eggs for our daughter and son in law wich were of course a bargain ( I forgot to photograph them ) 
They were Thornton's Large eggs retailing at  £25.00 each , But we got them for  £4.99 in a local warehouse that usually sells near or out of date stock but the eggs were neither.  

As i mentioned in my last post The living room is having a makeover , Since buying the chairs it just didnt look right with the sage green colour so we had the walls painted and this weekend i made some cushions.


The red velvet was new and unused for 30p from a  jumble sale, The striped fabric was in the clearance at Dunelm and just cost £3.00 , I also have enough to make some tie backs for the curtains, I will reveal the whole room soon 



The cotton i used came from a sewing box i bought from a jumble sale for £4.00 , The box itself i am rubbing down to re stain at the moment but just look at the contents , It was a bargain.










Of course Easter Sunday Dinner just had to be a bargain , This rack of lamb was from Iceland it was Beautiful , This is a type of cut that i usually avoid as its expensive and dosent go far but at this price , It was perfect.
If you can't see the label it was £3.00, Instead of £15.99.

  

Then i made an old Old fashioned fruit cake from My Homepride  cookery book.


The book is rather stained but that's how i found it , Its been well used.




Hope you all have had a productive Easter.
