Charity shop find

No cards or atc's today having a day off, there is so much going on I dont seem to be able to fit in a quick craft session as by the time I sit down and get everything I want out its time to dash off some where else.

So...... today I went to do my usual veggie shop for the pigs and I always pop into the charity shops whilst I am there just to see what bargains there are to be had. On my rummage I found this real leather album/scrap book it smells really leathery which is a bit grim but its absolutely lovely, I just don't know what to do with it. Its very plain as you can see but I haven't really altered anything like this before and wouldn't know where to start. It only cost me a whooping 99p so any ideas on what to do would be fab!I also bought this little silver box with a flip back lid, I have a thing about boxes so bought it and will probably change it a bit to suit my needs it was only 50p and all the money goes to charity and the ladies at this particular charity shop are stars they are lovely!
I hope everyone has had a lovley sunny wednesday! Will catch you all here tomorrow.


  1. look fwd to seeing what you come up with! the leather SB was a bargin!

    Love Dawn xx

  2. FAB buys Lisa, glad I`m not the only one who loves charity shops !! You coulds always cover the album with pretty paper or if you didn`t want to cover the leather, why not stamp on it with swirls, buterflies flowers etc.

    Hugs Diane xx

  3. What a couple of brilliant finds Dazie, you are very lucky to have found them. Do share with us when you have decided to alter it.
