A little buy

I found this cute little bowl in the shop ' Tiger' a few weeks back. As soon as I saw it I had to have it for only £1.






I love the Chinese style detail and the light blue colour of the bowl. 





I thought about using it to maybe hold my pins but it seems too nice for that.


After having a walk around the shop *clinging onto my little bowl*, Ian convinced me to get a few more.  He said something along the lines of "you'll regret not having a set of them one day".

He is always right....





I think these would be perfect for carrot sticks and dips for when we have our "one day" home. Or maybe olive oil and Ciabatta... yummy!

I also found this bargain at a local garden center. I had my eye on it when I saw it on the set of the "Great British Bake-Off" so was really happy when I saw it before Christmas. At nearly £10 I decided to forget it.


 After deciding to take another visit after Christmas I was chuffed to find it on sale at £3! Yay! For now it will live on my bathroom door but I think it would look lovely outside somewhere..although I don't know if it is weather proof?


I think getting little bits and pieces if we see them at a good price is a good thing to do. Atleast we won't have to get loads once we do get somewhere in a few years time.

  3. This so sounds like me, only I have now run out of space to store everything I have bought and am now having to use my Nan's garage ha ha. Some great bargains, it would have been rude not to have bought them x x x x
