~Thrifty coastal find~

Thankyou so much for leaving bloggy comments, I love hearing from you.
I am remiss at replying but forgive me as I'm a whirling dervish with the paintbrush at the moment - chairs, walls, skirting boards -interspersed with a bit of crafting and much ebaying of stuff with the aim, of course of a simpler life...
There is definitely a 5 year plan with regard to coastal living, and I am determined to streamline and organise. For my coastal cupboard of loveliness, I found these late 60s early 70s tin canisters in the Care and Share charity shop in Filey on Saturday for £1
They have twist on lids and are in fantastic non-rusty condition.
One of my crochet WIPs is this cushion front in Sirdar Sublime yarn which is also *ahem* coastal inspired...

The colours are inspired by this collection of seaside prints from my favourite artist Tracy Savage who is based in Hornsea.

Not sure how I'll feel when September comes and my fix of pebbles, sea and sand are reduced :(


  1. My goodness your crocheting is coming along Sally! I really do love those colours and I'm envious to hear about your five year seaside move plan. Wish we could do the same. I love the seaside especially the east coast. Xx

  2. Great find with the canisters and the crochet is a delight, I love the colours.

  3. Those are gorgeous!! Your crochet is beautiful!

  4. The tins are a nice find and your crochet is looking lovely


Please feel welcome to get in touch or leave a comment - I really appreciate it. Sally x
