A Trunk of treasure!!!!

When a lovely friend offers you a trunk and its contents......


A huge bundle of sumptious fabrics!
The only answer you can give is... ''YES PLEASE!!!"


When your son comes home from school saying that he has to be a Tudor for the day.......




.....You say...."Oh yes!"
All that lovely fabric provided the perfect excuse! I surprised myself (and enjoyed it too!)




Thankyou thankyou to 5ftinf!



My little tudor!

What a lovely suitcase! Great costume too, I rather miss the days of a little one saying 'mummy I have to be a .....' teenagers tend not to do dressing-up.

I don't know which I like more the suit case or the costume... hehe

The costume is fantastic - my son would love to wear something like that!

fantastic! You can get things like this at the Wimbledon (South London) dog tracks car boot on a saturday. A lot of house clearance items means you can find a trunk, box, bag full of treasured vintage sewing and textile goodies - I love it!

The tudor outfit looks great!
