I've been tripping over these bags, which were in my bedroom, for weeks whilst they've been waiting to be taken to the charity shop. There were seven bin liners and two carrier bags full. We didn't take them to our nearest charity shop, we've taken things there before and been told they didn't need any donations at that time. Instead, we opted for a charity shop run in aid of a nearby children's hospice, Martin House, and they were very grateful.
I didn't come away empty handed as I spotted a Lilliput Lane ornament. I've been collecting these for years and Clare Cottage is one which I didn't have. It's in perfect condition and only cost £1.50.
I love the detail on these cottages, and each one is based on a real building.
There'll be lots more things to take to the charity shop soon as we've embarked on a major clear out in Eleanor's bedroom. It's already looking much tidier, but there's still all the cupboards to sort out. We popped in to Lidl today and bought some of these storage boxes which Lisa told us about on her Jumble and Jelly blog. I thought they might give Eleanor a bit of an incentive to put things away when she's used them, though I won't hold my breath.
