A Winter Bargain

Forget all the winter sales! I never go to them anyway. I prefer to browse the charity shops and below is my latest winter woolly treasure!
A pure Shetland wool shawl-collared jumper for only £3.00.
I was so happy when I found this for my husband. He only ever really wears wool jumpers these days as he feels the cold a lot. ( And Shetland winters are unforgivably cold!!)
My apologies if the photo quality and lighting is not the best it could be. We are getting very few hours of daylight now and as we are also experiencing adverse weather conditions, everything looks dark and uninviting. But I hope you like the little fun arrangement I did with the jumper. I have a feeling though that my hubby won't be venturing out with his binoculars, even with the jumper on!!

The bottom photo is nearer to the actual colour of the jumper. It's a lovely coppery rust colour with various flecks through it. All in all a nice find and a great bargain. Back soon. Just off to get a little bird from the jaws of one of our cats!!!

Here's a photo of Madam Magda looking as if butter wouldn't melt in her mouth! Don't be fooled!

Back soon!
