So Sad... Broken Thrifty Finds...

Today my husbands football was cancelled and so into Newton Abbot Town we went, mainly to buy cat food.

Whilst waling up the main street I saw a lovely jug and bowl in one of the charity shops, I popped in and it was only £5 so I had to have it and whilst I was paying I spied another lovely double handles bowl which I could see holding our roast potatoes for sunday lunch....
















Bargains at only £5.00 and £1.99 each I think you will agree.............

Well..................

I carried them back to the car on the handle of the pushchair and as we unloaded the children into the car the pushchair tipped back and my lovely finds fell to the floor......

The bowl that goes with the jug brok in two places, two large bits and about 50 tiny fragments....

I have glued the bigger peices as well as I can and turned it around so that I can not be seen....

The handle broke off of the bowl but I have managed to glue this very well and you really can not see it or it will not effect its use to hold roasties !!!!!

How sad was I.......................... I tried so hard not to show it but felt that these two very old peices of chins were in lovely condition until I got my grubby mits on them.....
