Bargains in France and upcycling

We went to the charity shop we found last year just before we left, and I enjoyed it just as much as last time.Will definitely be back before we leave ..........
 12" wooden mill, average £15 plus ......80p!
 Lovely tea set for next years celebrations £4.30
 This is a set of 3 dinner plates and 2 tea plates for just over £2. 
I'm going to buy the cake stand struts and make 2 cake stands for next year :)
I love this piece. It's actually supposed to have a lid but it was missing so only 80p! 
I plan to use it for a flower display. I saw something on TV the other day. 
You make a criss cross pattern with sellotape and that holds the flowers upright and in place :)

Just loved these bottles, they were my most expensive buy at £8.00 for 5. 
There were loads, but I thought 5 different sizes all set together
with small flowers would look fab - think I'm right LOL!


  1. Wow some great bargains there! Love the flowers in bottles too.

    1. Thanks Suzanne, I'm a sucker for what Jeff refers to as tat! x

  3. I'm not up on my money conversions, but I'll take your word for it that you got some great deals :D

    I do like that pepper grinder, though, very cool!

    1. Must be a man thing, the pepper mill was Jeff's buy :) x
