I've been looking for a fire screen for my dear daughter for almost a year now, the gas fire in her home is ugly and the landlord has no intention of changing it. Patience has finally come to fruition, this was offered on our local Freecycle and I was lucky enough to be offered it.
Modelled in my hearth
It's extremely good quality and VERY heavy and totally FREE!
And even has a heart pattern - very Valentine ;o) Due for delivery this coming weekend.
Just before Christmas I went to TK Maxx with my dear friend Ann hunting for gifts,
I saw a resin candle holder in the sale aisle, I loved it but it would have been for me so I left it.
I couldn't get it off my mind, so the next day I went back hoping it was still there....
Phew! What a relief, still sitting on the shelf waiting for ME :o) and I thought it was a bargain at £6.99
It stands approx 14 inches high, I just added a nice chunky candle.
Then on Saturday I visited my local 'supplier' (whi incidentally was worried as I hadn't been in for over a week - no wonder I felt ill!) I had a good old mooch around and found a few things..
A pair of corbels, meant to be used for holding swags over a window. I have a similar pair already in my bathroom that I place candles on - thought I'd use these in a similar fashion. Standing approx 6 inches high, £1.50 the pair.
Now, how could I leave this little hoggie on the shelf? A bargain 40p.
Next, (and I nearly missed these beauties!)
Six blown glass bird decorations
They're similar to blue tits, sparrows and robins, they're around 2.5 inches long
So cute, and only £2.50
And finally, a roomy leather handbag in fabulous condition
the label inside..
An incredible £4.
Hope you like 'em. Again, sending Valentine wishes.
