Always good to find something during a charity shop rummage that you actually need, as opposed to want (because it's lovely and a bargain...) I've been looking for some decent fitted sheets for my daughter's bed, and found these pretty flowery ones last week. They're new, but the packaging looks old, and at £2.50 each I really had to get both of them.
Turns out the sheets are from America and they're a little bigger than the others I have. This is perfect as they don't seem to creep up the sides of the bed or ping off after a night with a fidgety, restless five year old.
So back to buying things I want but don't need...
...but they were only 50p! I think they're small place and glass mats, and there's so much work in each one - all the flowers are hand embroidered. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them, (hankies? though don't really use them, or small doll's sheets?) but felt they just had to come home with me.
These necklaces came home too. The green and brown glass beads are for my mother-in-law, because I know she likes these colours. The shell one...well it was a bit of an impulse buy. Easy to be impulsive when there's a 25p price tag.
I'm keen on shells, but haven't quite decided if the necklace is good different or bad different...suppose I could always take the shells off?
I'm linking up with Magpie Monday. Go take a look!
