About Me

My photo
I currently live in Birmingham and come from Solihull. I have a love of all things crafty, developed from my mom's love of crafts as I was growing up. I currently work in marketing, but I'm a qualified Aromatherapist, and use to be self employed alongside a day job, might one day return to that. I try to fit in crafts when I can, I wish I had more time and money to spend on it! I enjoy researching my family history and finding out about the past. It can get frustrating, but is really rewarding when you have a break through! I hope to meet people with similar interests as me and swap advice/stories.

What treasures are in your loft?

Big clear out back home- everything from the loft is out and it's time to sort, so I did a little last weekend (still much to do.)

Amongst everything I found this:

 It use to be my moms and now I have it here with me! I've seen several people use it to display crafts, whether online or at shows. I did keep an eye out for one in the charity shops and antiques but it was either none or expensive, and yet low and behold there was one in the loft all this time!!

The case has been kept very well. My mom thinks it was a beauty travel case, she remembers it vaguely (it still has 2 unused bottles in it.) So now all I need to decide is what will I do with it (oh and where will I store it?)

It's also exciting to think what else will be discovered in the loft??? Maybe you should check yours!
