Cinnamon Apple Breakfast Rolls and Car Boot Sale Finds

A few weeks ago I had a massive clear out in Jack's bedroom. He wanted a Playmobil ferry and was prepared to finally give up some of his baby toys and games to pay for it. The huge pile took up residence in our bedroom after that, until last week when I motivated myself to do a car boot sale.

I was up at 5am, and before 6am keen bargain hunters crowded around the car asking for mobile phones or china, neither of which I had. A little later on in the morning the husband arrived with Hanna and Jack, allowing me to go and have a wander around the stalls. I first picked up a brown wooden tray for £1, swiftly followed by a teacup and saucer for 50p. I was then on a mission to find a few more items for my breakfast tray, and first discovered an enamel billy can for £2, a butter knife for 50p and then an enamel colander for 50p. Pretty pleased with my purchases I returned to my stall until it was time to pack away and go home.

Once home I cleaned and painted the tray up with a couple of coats of Annie Sloan 'old white' paint, and washed the other items, ready to use with my Cinnamon Apple Breakfast Rolls.
