So here we go with the first round up post of this linky: my highlights of January's theme.
I told myself I must select just the one thrifty and the one make post every time, not because I wouldn't like to write about each entry, but because realistically that's more like what I can achieve to do while baby naps.
Having said that I was very tempted to highlight everybody who linked up in January, so I made a compromise. I will always pick two photo features and the rest of the entries will be mentioned in a brief way at the end of the post. This decision makes me happy, and it's just about what I can pledge to, given a precious half hour of peace and quiet.

Suzie's Portmeirion find in the Totem pattern is something of a classic wishlist item for many I'm sure. I wish I've bagged such a perfect little treasure for such little money. It looks lovely housing a jade plant on top of the cds.

The innocent charm of Anca's handmade quilts is simply irresistible to me. No regular pattern or precision sewing could make another quilt quite like hers, oozing with so much personality. Anca's quilts are literally made of memories. In the picture I selected from her post above shows an embroidery made by her mum as a child - how sweet and precious!
In addition to groovy pottery and beautiful patchwork, January saw a bronze age blouse, a manta ray shawl, a sample book of printed serviettes and a tablecloth nightgown flanked by a Frozen dress.
Thanks again for everybody who linked up last month, and let's go February Letters!
