"What's in my shopping basket?" episode 1

Hello friends,

as I said yesterday, lately I have been addicted to ebay and I found some amazing stuff on it. I am 10 years late as I only just discovered it, but I made up for it by spending a few pennies on some funky fabrics for the lining of the bags I am making.
So here is a small collection of my favourite ones so far:

I've got some more, but they will feature in the next "What's in my shopping basket" episode. I think the birds fabric is my favourite at the moment. I will be sad to part with it and line a bag that is made for soemone else, but I know that it will make the bag that much more special and unique.
I am like a kid in a candy shop when it comes to these things. When I wait to get them in the post, I get all excited. I am waiting for gorgeous vintage Italian soldiers buttons at the moment. Can't wait to see them and use them on my new creation.

So, that's all for now. I have a suspicous feeling tomorrow's post will be about Brixton and its amazing market as I am going there after work. You never know what you'll see in there. I've got my camera with me at all times, so there will be some lovely snaps, I am sure.

See you all very soon, and thank you for stopping by.
Oh yes,... what is in your shopping basket?

Birds are my favorite, I'm sure the bag will be special :-) In my shopping bag today - a book by Bosnina writer, friend of mine, Emir Imamovic from Tuzla. Trece poluvrijeme is his 3rd book, I love it. I think you know him too. Waiting for your next post, I really enjoy reading it soooo much. Huge kiss.

I agree, birds are the best!!
And I'm so happy you are enjoying the blog. You put a smile on my face :-)
