A thrifty find for summer...



I recently bought this vintage girl guide blanket on eBay and I really love it. Made from different pieces of check woollen blanket (expertly stitched together), and it has travel badges and girl guide patches all over it. Yay! I am dying to have a picnic so that I can use this (along with the Cath Kidston cooler bag I bought on my trip to the UK - more about this later!).

I just spent yesterday picking the badges off my guide camp blanket - I was going to keep the badges and ditch the woolen blanket (makes me sneeze). Its an army grey style one - would you like donation of either blanket and/or badges? Would be happy for you to make use of them if you so desired.

I am heading down the coast to my mum's tomorrow... guess what I'm going to try to hunt down? Yes, it's true... I was a girl guide... x

Oh, I have my original Girl Guide blanket here! Makes me want to dig it out and show it off to the kids. Fun days...
