something for nothing....

It's not often you get something for nothing these days. Usually there is a hidden catch but this week I got something for nothing, not once, not twice but three times!

First was my road side find!  It's hard rubbish in our area and on my way home from Playgroup the other day I saw this little beauty and quickly threw it in the boot.  Once home my son thought it would be a great place to store his blocks!

The next something for nothing was winning a Blog Giveaway over at Katia's.  I won a gorgeous fabric button and a fat quarter of fabric!  I was so excited when it arrived in the mail.  Thankyou Katia xx

And the final something for nothing was this hoard of homegrown herbs and goodies I was given on a visit to my grandmother! I did actually give her a jar of my olives so perhaps this can be considered a barter.  I did only ask for a small bunch of rosemary, but I got this instead!  My son was amazed when he watched his Bis-Nonna (great-grandmother in Italian) pull the little carrots out of the ground!  I only wished I had taken my camera to capture the moment...
