Pretty & Thrifted

I've been on something of a thrifting roll lately.  In fact I've been on a bit of a spending role full stop.  I've been asked really kindly and tactfully by Mr N if I could try and reign back my spending as, you know, there are a few big expenditures coming up etc etc.  "Of course baby".   And I reeeeally did try!  Anyhoo, after 'stay and play' on Thursday I had to pop to the local shops to pick up a single item from a single shop, you know how it is.  Obviously, I'd barely stepped out of the school gates before I had reasoned to myself that I might as well pop into a few charity shops on my way back, seeing as they are en route.   Hey, why risk breaking a good run?

I'm sure Mr N will understand why I had to do what I did when he sees what beauties I found:-

Pretty candy coloured bead necklaces

More plates.  I know, I know, but aren't they just the cutest?

Magic Roundabout Annual 1993.  Even though it is quite modern, the illustrations are so colourful and retro.

Vintage Enid Blytons.

Lady at charity shop to me   "Oh aren't these in lovely condition, are they for your little girl?

Me  "Um, yeh" (I suppose she can read them if she's very very good!)

Off to share with Sophie Isobel 

Happy Sunday

    1. Yay, I have that one too. I've had it since I was a kid. I didn't think it was weird though - quite sweet really! xx

  7. I used to love Enid Blyton when I was a kid. I seem to be having some wierd flashbacks after reading some of your posts. Which is the book where they went off in a magic chair? Or have I just imagined this?! Please put my mind at rest lol. xx

    1. Ha ha, glad to know I have hit some memory buttons. Isn't it great when that happens. I think you may be thinking of The Wishing Chair ?? x
