A $14.68 fix........

Dd and the girls popped up for a visit on the weekend.  Amongst the things we did we had a trip to Homesense for a look around.  Miss N. felt very grown up carrying Nana's handbag.

 Miss P's hands were full with "Scarf Bear!!"

As soon as we walked through the door we saw this display.  I LOVE those milk boxes, really cute.
The girls took Timmy the Turtle home and here he is in their garden.
I found a new ironing board cover.  This is why the title of the post is $14.68 ($12.99 plus 13 % tax = $14.68)

 So on Monday I too off my old ironing board cover and underneath it I had put tin foil, which had rusted through.
 When I removed the tin foil, it was even more rusty, but very serviceable.
 So covered it with new tin foil.
 Added the new ironing board cover and everything is good too go.
 Remembered to cut off any usable hardware.
 Then bundled it all up and threw out the old cover and tin foil.  It looks nasty doesn't it?

Should be all good for a few more years.

It does look nasty. I much prefer your darling grandies!!!

Does covering with foil help? I've not come across that before.

Don't do much ironing but periodically place a new cover over the old one. Hate to think what the board is like underneath all these new replacements!

O my your granddaughters are getting big, I can remember seeing your blogs when you showed photo's of the baby shower and then monthly when they were babies. Time goes much too fast, doesn't it.
Great idea using tin foil, same question as Joy.
I need to purchase a new one in the near future, use ironing board practically every day with my quilting.

Lovely seeing your grandchildren Gill and an interesting place you went to. I've never heard of using tin foil either.

That is a great idea with the tinfoil...seems like my ironing board covers don't take long to start looking nasty.
