Weekend of Thrifty Finds.

It has been of those weekends where I have had a number of lucky finds.

Firstly on Friday I went to my sons school christmas fayre and bought a lovely draft excluder which is blue gingham on one side and blue toile on the other and all for £4.... bargain.

Then on Saturday morning we went as a family to Totnes, we mooched around the town and I bought a couple of lovely lanterns, one sage green and one red, which are just lovely.... PLUS a lovely grey jug with a pretty white floral pattern on the front for £7.50 and a cute but ugly 'House Doctor' doll in a funky floral pattern - all pics to follow....

But tonight I have come up trumps on ebay and won....




a georgour vintage red coffee pot, my sons smashed my cafatier (however you spell it) and I wanted something to make a nice cup of coffee in for after christmas day lunch and a true bargain at 99p.....................



A cute pink vintage gravy boat as I don't have one and had to use a priex jug tonight..... and another bargain at £1.20....

Plus a Vintage Pink Willow Pattern side plate, I hope to use it ti stand the gravy boat on




and another great deal at 99p......

I have had my sister, Andrea Fayes, and her husband for roast dinner tonight which was really nice, we have not got together for such a long time and it was really nice to catch up.....

I have to work tomorrow, I have not worked for 3 1/2 years, since being pregnant with my second son.....am a little scared. I was a admin / pa before having children but I do not have the brain cells..... so I am staring to work in good old Sainsburys. The only problem i see myself having is not eating the customers food and it goes through the check outs..........

Don't forget 'Lotte Duncan' is on QVC tomorrow 12.00 midday, it looks great from the adverts, I will miss it but will catch up when I get home......

Have a great Monday morning .....
