Nifty Thrifting

Last week I spent just over ten pounds on this lot of lovelies.....people must be having a post Christmas clear out...

First up was the vintage scales..a bit shabby but for £3, I'm happy!
My favourite charity shop didn't let me down

And I discovered these in my favourite charity shop's sister shop across town...pretty china posy

and cute china brooch - shown here on my spring jacket...hopefully won't be too long before it comes out of the wardrobe!!

I was asked about what I planned to do with my flag cushions, well a couple are for me, well our new bedroom (which is still not done - sore point -from it'll be done by Christmas...to it'll definately be done by end of January...to getting a stare when I asked if it would be done by the time we get married!!). The others are presents, I think.

(quick message to say thank you to my lovely bloggy friends for your kind words following my post of self pity..I really appreciate it xx I'm feeling a bit better today, just a few tears at bedtime tonight....mine!!)

Hiya Clair, just to let you know I have tagged you - sorry if you've had it before! XX

Hiya Claire, the heart fruity one was from a kids fabric collection - it doesn't mention globaltext but it might be!? I rang the covent garden store and was given a firm no! So rang the customer ordering line instead : much more helpful!! XX
