Saturday Specials

I had many plans for Saturday but as is always the case time got away from me, I did however find time to pay a visit to my favourite charity shop

A bit early for Christmas but this copy of A Christmas Carol looked suitably "battered" and will be perfect when the season to be jolly arrives! And for some reason I adored the mug and didn't want to leave it behind


Like the mug I loved this lone teacup.... with it's large bowl I thought it perfect for a tealight by my bedside or perhaps to throw my jewellery into of an evening


I already have a similar black swan from my great aunts house and have developed a love of all things swan like recently thinking the idea of having "ying and yang" swans was a nice idea


My bathroom is already filled with mermaids and shell dishes so this trinket box couldn't be left behind


It's so much fun looking for goodies now I have a home to bring them in to and place directly on a shelf or in a room - and also helps my purse as I'm more sensible with purchases!


What did you find this weekend?

  1. Well, I got a new laptop, so I'm playing with it :-), but probably later I'll go in the garage and look for some sweet pink plates I saw ages ago, they are only 5+ a big one, but who cares?
    Saturday always flies, isn't it?

  11. Never too early to buy up Christmas stuff I say. They double in price in a few months.
