Morning all. Thank you for looking after us last month Natalie @NOfkantsCurios. Thank you Max @MaxPringJewellery for hosting for May.

May already! Will soon be half way through the year, Christmas in July, then the countdown to the festive season. Convinced days, weeks, months are shorter than they used to be.

Vintage roses and fan card


Good morning all, and welcome to the May 22 thread. Huge thanks to Natalie @NOfkantsCurios for dancing her way through April and keeping the tally and thanks to everyone else too for making this thread such a wonderful supportive community. Wishing you all lots of love :sparkling_heart:, hugs :hugs: and visits from the sales fairy :fairy:t3: in May xx



Happy May :blush:.
Early for me today, will comeback later and catch up.

Just a relist.


Good morning, thanks for looking after us last month natalie @NOfkantsCurios and to you max @MaxPringJewellery for taking it on this month.

Back with a listing later but first we are off to the ‘stately car boot’ which is at a lovely country house just down the road from us. It’s a big charity event and a bit posher than your average car boot so you never know what you’ll find.


Good morning
Thank you Max @MaxPringJewellery for taking up the reins again and thanks to Natalie @NOfkantsCurios for looking after us last month.
Had a lazy day yesterday mostly sitting in the garden but when my daughter arrived I made the mistake of joining her walking the dog. Thought my foot was sufficiently recovered - foot thought otherwise - not quite back to square 1 but definitely a regression :frowning:
Just looked at the weather forecast - looks like rain today which is probably a good thing - will keep me inside and I might get on with something.
Another card today



Good morning all…damp out there this morning.
Thank you Natalie @NOfkantsCurios for running the April thread and thank you Max @MaxPringJewellery for taking over for May…what WOULD we do without you two hard working ladies…thank you both.
Today I start with some delicate Spring flowers…


Morning all! I missed yesterday I’m afraid, but new month, new start! Hope everyone’s having a good bank holiday weekend. Let’s hope I’m doing this right today, as I’m on my phone and still in bed! Lazy start to the day! SALE! Child's Mushroom Sleep Mask, Age 3-8 years - Folksy


A stately car boot sounds amazing! Hope you find some lovely stuff Mel :blue_heart:


Happy May everyone :grinning: Thank you so much for all the Anniversary wishes yesterday Mr CN and I had a lovely day in the sunshine visiting Dartmoor. Lots of cute lambs and foals and gorse all in flower.

Thank you @NOfkantsCurios for running the April thread and to @MaxPringJewellery for taking over May.

I’ve a wee bird painting today.


Good morning all! That you Maxine for taking the reins this month! You’re a star!

A stately car boot sound fantastic, hope you find some amazing bargains Mel @aquilacrafts

My listing for today was a bit tricky to photograph, the yarn is a very pale blue and has a slight sparkle to it, not sure if the sparkle really shows in the photos.

Morning all,
Thanks for running the thread this month Max.

Just a relist today.



Morning everyone,
I hope its ok to join in again!
Todays listing

We’re going on a day trip today, up to Wakefield, so I’ll be back later to love everyone’s work.


Good morning everyone. Happy May :blush:. My grandson is on his way over. I swear it’s because he ‘knows’ grandad built his birthday present for next week when he turns 1 and we’ve nowhere to hide it :joy:. We’ve bought him a little trike that starts off like a buggy that adults control but as he grows it can be adapted and will become a proper trike that he can pedal himself.



Morning everyone. I had no chance to join in here, or to create anything while I was away. Some days we were on the go from 5am until midnight plus.
So I’m hoping thay May will be back to normal (my version).
My broken foot is healing, so all us good.

Nothing new from me, but I have a head full of ideas that I’m itching to start.

A relist…


Good morning all and Happy May Day to you all. Thank you for dancing for us so well last month Natalie @NOfkantsCurios and to you Max @MaxPringJewellery for picking up your dancing shoes for this month.
It’s another relist today I’m afraid. Today a hooded jacket


Good morning and happy May
Hopefully I can stay with you for the whole month without any more hospital admissions. Hubby is home but it will be very slow regaining his strength
Something new today

Happy Bank Holiday Weekend everyone! :slight_smile:

Good morning all - Happy May… Here’s to lots of sales :champagne:
