Feeling thrifty

It's been a good day for thrifting. I picked up these little lovelies this morning - all quite unexpected, so I like them even more 

Book 50p
Blue Glass Jug £3.50
Stainless Steel Servers £2
Cake Fork Set £1.50

I was especially excited to find the book as I had the same one when I was a child, although I'm sure I was older than the "under 5" suggested on the cover as I remember reading it myself. I had a quick look through it while I was waiting for my Body Balance class to start and chuckled at how politically incorrect it looks thirty years on

D has had to go into London this afternoon so I'm sitting here watching Peppa Pig with the kids and just working up the courage to open the tin of Magnetic Blackboard Paint I bought this morning, after seeing some lovely playroom ideas on Pinterest. Wish me luck! 


  1. Good luck!!!

    I love finding my childhood books too.

  2. Lovely tablecloth ;)

    And gorgeous serving spoons!

  3. I love old books. All of your thrifty finds are lovely.

  4. Just saying 'hi' - I hopped over here from Crochet with Raymond & just the loveliness in your list of labels is enough to make me think I want to stick around!
