Sorry but I'm not keeping my promise to show my shortbread moulds as I am expecting visitors and needed to clear the dining table! So here's a few bargains found during the last week before I put them away.
I've seen this Wedgwood drawer in the charity shop for over a week and at £2.50 I decided to give it a home! It's approx 12" square and has a lined drawer, I have no idea what was in it originally though - does anyone have any ideas? I'm sure I'll find some small treasures to keep in it.
The next day I found this Marks & Spencer footed bowl (approx 10"diameter) for £1.50. Now you know I have a weakness for anything gold, and I thought it would look so nice at Christmas.....so home it came.
On Saturday I went for a 'girls day out' to Dagfields (near Nantwich in Cheshire). I found a glass wash board which someone had chalk painted for £12 - the cheapest I've ever seen one!
I want to attach it to my laundry door :o)
While we were there I spotted this:
Babacombe Pottery string holder at £5. As you know I collect cats and already have another Babacombe cat string holder but it's painted as a tabby. The string comes out of the mouth and the scissors nestle in the nose.
Lastly, for many years I have scoured Cannock Chase in the hope of finding some deer antlers without success but, while out on Saturday I spotted a single Roe Deer antler one of the dealers had. I asked how much, they said £15 - I went away to think about it......
Then I went back after a while (and near closing) and offered £10. After a little discussion we finally agreed on £12. I'm DELIGHTED!
It has an overall length of two feet. It must be naturally shed as it isn't sawn off and it's a single antler. At the moment it's placed on the coffee table :o)
I must dash as I still have plenty of jobs to do.
I'd like to welcome another follower to the fold :o) Hope you enjoy my posts and leave feedback as I love to read it! On which subject, I hope I've got around to everyone who has left your sweet comments on my last post.
Have a great week all - promise I'll show the shortbread moulds next time - honest!
Very best wishes
