I love our local charity shop!

We live in a rural village. There is not much to do, sometimes the local news bulletin mentions a crime committed, things as set fire to a 'for sale' sign, troublesome people removed from the cricket field etc. The bus is running only once in an hour, no service after 6 pm and on Sundays and Bank Holidays. Of course there is no superstore, but we do have a nice few local shops. One of them is the charity shop. Doortje loves it for the toys, I like it to browse for books. Today was our lucky day. Maybe you remember how she took the ladybug-beads from a earlier post. Now she has found herself a bag full of those insects.

This does not mean I got back the beads. She is very happy with her new treasure and told everyone she has 'some more ladybugs'. They live happily together in her dolls house.

And I found another knitted toys book! These pictures will give a good impression:

Now I need to find some time to knit some of those cute toys. Maybe instead of blogging about knitting :)?

Die lieveheersbeestjes zouden hier ook een succes zijn! Bij de kindjes toch ;-)
Het boek zou ik zelf ook wel meegebracht hebben denk ik...
ik kijk er al naar uit om een paar van die gebreide dingetjes te zien!

What a great book. I adore the toy-animals.
Also a little bit jealous with such a local charity shop :)
