Frugal goings on

  We have been moving furniture around this weekend. Baby D is now attempting to sit up from on her back and getting her head far to high for the moses basket to be safe. So she is officially upgraded to her cot which we've moved into our room. In order to make room we relocated one of the sideboards into the kitchen. We brought the one above for just £25 at a local charity shop several years ago. Doesn't it match with the dresser and table nicely. I think my dining are is looking rather vintage at the moment.
 I have also made some fudge using up the last of the clotted cream from my tea party. It tastes like heaven. It's even set properly! Usually mine comes out more like toffee or caramel sauce :)
 And finally with all that moving things about I have rediscover so many things I've tucked away. Like my wooden sewing box I'd lost,  a vintage linen hanky ready to embroider and an embroidery panel of a crinoline lady.
 Once I have finished my current secret project (can't wait to show you all) I will try and get the two project above done. Best get to work :)
