Scavenger Hunt [8]......some new furniture

We've bought a new conservatory suite.......new to us anyway......from one of our excellent 2nd hand shops.......our old cane sofa came from Freecycle......and after 2 years had really come to the end of its life.
This one .....and the matching chairs.....are much more substantial.......not to mention more comfortable.
But......while I love flowers in the garden.......and in vases.......and on cards.......and scrapbook pages......I'm not so keen on floral furniture......I personally prefer 'folk style country' to 'chintzy country'.......so when I saw some soft green throws in Primark for £4.......I thought "perfect".
And then DD1 dragged me into Dunelm Mill......because she'd never been there.......and we both agreed that these cushions were "perfect"........but whether Rinda will consider they're perfect for the 'national flag' part of her scavenger hunt......I really don't know......though she did say "think laterally"!!!!!!

Fabulous makeover Jacky! I love those cushions & yes Im sure they fit the criteria that Rinda set. I mean ... a Union Flag is a Union Flag whatever the colourway its in :)
