Well I popped to the Charity shop this morning and the items I had spotted last week had as I suspected already gone. (I am working on the principle that if there is not much spare cash to hand if I leave something I would quite like and then go back and it is still there then I was meant to have it). Some you win and some you lose. However for the princely sum of £7.50 today I have managed to bag a brand new water carafe decorated by hand with painted flowers which cost me £3. I quite frequently wake up at night needing a sip of water so this will do very nicely. On closer inspection it would appear to be a Laura Ashley water carafe and glass and it still has its price tag on the base for £18.00. So I think I did very well.
I also managed to pick up four green ramekins for 80 pence for the four. They are that lovely Spring green which I really love and they are from Cargo. Yet again they appear to be hardly used.
The final item is a set of four white porcelain fluted flan dishes (individual ones the size that Marks and Spencer sell their individual flans at) for £1.50 for the four.
I had already managed to find a larger porcelain one for £1.50 the other week (although this one is patterned from Marks and Spencer). All useful bits and bobs when engaging in home baking.
I have also managed to pick up a metal enamelled gift basket (empty) which will be a useful container either for my hair brushes or in which to do a silk flower display for the windowsill.
So I am really pleased with my finds today and whats more they will be extremely useful
Oh and here are a couple of photographs of the posy vase I managed to find the other day and also the linen and lace tablecloth
So I did not do too badly
Catch you all later on
