I feel that I have been neglecting to show you my 'finds' of late. A couple of weeks ago I did the rounds of the charity shops with my friend Tina, and also called into an antiques centre that I hadn't visited before. Here's my haul:
It's a jar that looks like celery! For storing, erm, celery! I really shouldn't buy such novelty kitchen items but I couldn't resist as it was only £3. Plus, as my skilledly-enabling friend put it, "It might encourage you to eat more celery." (I do like celery)
This long cosy cardigan for £4.50. It was from M&S originally and is a mix including angora so is really soft and cosy. It' just exactly the kind of thing I've been looking for, so hurrah.
Coolest napkins ever, 80p each from the antiques centre. They all have different pub signs on them. I love them.
From a different charity shop trip this week - a set of cake slice and cheese knife, in their original 1960s box, including a leaflet all about how to care for stainless steel, in case you found this brave new material frightening in some way. A snip at £2.50, and again I don't own items like these so they will be used.
On the whole, all useful items. Apart from the celery jar, which is at least beautiful in its own way.
