My first magpie monday

I had a bit of unexpected free time to-day and had a little wander around a couple of charity shops - heres what I came home with.

A little wooden lighthouse - 50p. I thought it would look cute in my son's bedroom

A hook - 50p. I think i'll use this somewhere in the kitchen.

A wooden tissue box cover - £1. This will be painted to match one of the rooms.

Christmas serving dish - £1.50. I know its only June but I love dishes and I love christmas so this had to come home with me.

And my big splurge £3. for this little covered dish. I'm thinking about trying to turn this into a cake stand.
I did get another couple of things - but they will have to wait as they are for my swap partner. I hope she likes them. xx

Me and My Shadow


  1. Hi! Thanks for linking up. Great to meet you. Read your profile and but for that I'm a few years ahead of you in the SAHM stakes, we sound like two peas!

    Love your bargains, especially the cake dome and the coat hook - those type of hooks cost a fortune in Laura Ashley.

  2. So envious of that little rose hook-its so cute, I need one of those for my vintage room! Great finds!

  3. Wonderful bargins, the flower hook would be a great towel hook in your new kitchen! Love the little covered cake stand too, so envious!

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!
