New Treasures....and Ice Cream

This morning I visited a small Antique and Collectors Fair, it's held every month and I usually go. Today there weren't as many sellers as usual but I did manage to find some good things.
I found this lovely hat box

just right for storing my growing collection of sewing things, I also found this collection

I don't think the picture does them justice as they really are very pretty, not sure what I'm going to do with them yet but I'm sure I'll think of something.

And the ice cream, well I actually made my own for the first time. I've had an ice cream maker for ages but never used it, then I read Cheryl's tutorial and thought I really should give it a go.
I am so glad I did, it was the nicest ice cream I've had(even if I do say so myself).Here it is, served up in my new Emma Bridgewater bowls.

Thanks Cheryl for the very clear tutorial I shall certainly be making it again.

Have a good week,

Sue xx


  1. That hat box is gorgeous Sue and those pieces of vintage lace are a real find!!
    Your ice-cream looks delish ..I wish I had an ice cream maker, think I might need to invest in one this summer.
    Have a nice week.
