Right, make your self a cuppa and get comfy....here goes....
This little piggy hangs in the kitchen, I got him just before Christmas at a cost of £1.
Then, just below it hangs this..
the colours are much brighter than shown, as the sun was shining across it when I took the photo. I LOVE what it says :o) and it was £2.50
I found this beauty a few weeks ago, it now resides at the bottom of our bed though I took this photo in the bathroom as it showed up better.
It's pure wool and 3 foot long x 1 foot wide. Someone had spent hours making it and I'm certain it had never been used as the back is as pristine as the front, I thought £7.50 was a bargain. Don't you just love poppies?
A dinky minature teapot about 2 inches high was 50p, and now sits on top of the microwave, cluck, cluck!
This pretty blue and white bowl is about 10 inches diameter with a lovely shaped edge was a snip at £1.75
it's bound to end up in the kitchen ;o)
Just the thing with Valentine around the corner...80p for the set.
Now, talking of Valentine...
These gold painted seed heads were only 50p the lot, I got them with another 4 bunches of different seed heads (all the same price) with the intention of using (some) of them at Christmas, but, as you know that didn't happen. The heads are each 3-4 inches high and fitted to sticks. I love the heart shape and I'm sure I can use them in some sort of Valentine vignette. I'll post the results...
Then I found this little sweetie
Then it got even better.....
This dear little sleepy cupid on a golden pine cone box is only 2 inches high, and I LOVE it!
Sorry, it's so small and I'm finding it hard to get in focus. Here's a view of the back of it
and when the lid is removed...
there's cupids arrow through the heart .... guess what I matched it up with?
(The runner it's sitting on was purchased today for £1)
(Oh dear, sorry, the colour's a bit wishy-washy).
This tiny little golden pineapple is also 2 inches high, and was £1.50.
Does anyone have any ideas what it was for? Those are a tiny pair of tweezers that fit inside it. It is stamped on the bottom 'Made in England' (such tiny letters I needed my magnifying glass).
This pretty 'daffodil' coffee pot was purchased weeks ago for £1.50 - you'll be seeing it again very soon!
This funny little basket was only 60p, it was the blue and white handles that attracted me to it. Measuring about 8 inches across, I can feel the spray paint will be out soon to brighten it up.
Some of you may remember the tall vase (18 inches) that I got last year, well how could I resist it's little brother for £1? The colour is not as nice as the big one, but I have plans to put them in the garden in the spring with a trailing plant in the tops :o)
Friends who visit regularly know about my fascination with paperweights and glass, well this little clock joins the two together. Caithness are well known for their paperweights..it's 2" square
Stick with it...nearly finished!
It's hard to photograph paperweights when it's sunny...well that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
This is a Caithness Glass one called 'Petunias' and it DOES really look like one - honest ;o)
and cost £2
This is another Caithness one called 'With Love' a pretty flower with a red heart in the centre. £1
(I've just found that this is a current model designed by Helen McDonald and costs £42).
Well, here's hoping you've stuck with it and enjoyed seeing my bargains. Lovely to see another new follower, welcome :o)
Sending my very best wishes to you all.
