A few of my favorite things.......






Boxes covered in French Fabrics, I use the very fragile ones that I can't sew with for this.....
Pretty flouncy underskirts from my local carboot, no!!! I'm far too tubby to get into it, but I could not resist buying it ha ha.......and last but not least...Indian Mangoes bought in boxes of 9 from my local Asian shop...divine.
I'm off to have a girly weekend in London, to see my wonderful and lovely Mom..so have a fabulous weekend too.
Hugs Lynn xxxxxx
You must try the Mangoes xx

Oh Lynn, those mangoes look delicious, but are they like the normal mangoes, or are they coated with something?
I also adore the indian mango icecream, so full and creamy....

Hello Lynn,

What a beautiful setting of covered boxes.....I have often wondered what I could do with my fragile fabrics...now I know. I love how you placed the beautiful teacup picture in the old frame and the little pink dress with the rose above on the hanger is sooo pretty! Have fun in London - wish I could meet you there!

Cheers, Lisa

Karen from A`Musements said...

Ohhhhh.... it all looks 'yummy' especially the fabulous mango. We love the same things, Lynn... I have JUST purchased a mango for myself and it's the first of the 'season' and I am now anxious to eat mine!
I hope you have a great time in London, and a wonderful visit with your Mom!
(Perhaps a lovely fish and chips snack will be on the agenda!)
xoxo
