It was my birthday on 21st July and those who have previously read my blog around this time of year will know that the gifts I receive from my sister C are all items which have been purchased from car boots, charity shops and the occasional jumble.
Likewise come October all the gifts I give to her will have been bought in similar places.
Our budget is £10, only this year try as she might C couldn't spend that last 25p and all that you see before you was purchased for the grand total of £9.75.
Missing from the post are 3 further things, a purple jacket which was in the wash at the time, a brooch and a cherry charm, these small items were in my purse for safe keeping.
First up is a fab selection of clothing.
The jeans I love, they were brand new and still had the tags attached and fit really well and are very comfy.
The blue top/jumper combo will be perfect for work.
The red cardi was another brand new item.
As well as the missing jacket there was this pale brown one which is has a great shape to it
and this patchwork one.
I know this wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea but I do love it.
Only thing is I'm not sure I would wear it.
But I do love it.
Then we have a pretty cream coloured bowl, a bowl of china cherries, a tile with a cute Christmas scene, a bird wall hook, two brand new boxed quizzes, a portable sundial, a matching pen and pencil set and a tin of fish shaped foil paperclips.
Final collection of goodies include a cat jigsaw, a set of heart shaped chalkboards, more new boxed quizzes, two handy hints books and a small felted purse.
