We are into the first week of the school holidays here and it has been a really relaxing and enjoyable first few days (touchwood / crosses self). May it continue into week two.
The grey and cold has set in but there have been a few colourful treats around these parts.....
50% off Orla Kiely, couldn't say no. Scored this beautiful tin - and it's huge! I love her homeware's but once the prices are converted into NZ dollars her items are a tad on the expensive side so I like to keep an eye out for sales - my friend L always messages me when she spots one.
I joined in with Miriam from Create Hope Inspire for her Little Bit of Colour swap. I was sent a parcel of treats from Kimberley of Creative Chaos - I'm hoping my recipient has received her goodies. Kimberley and I had a good laugh about this as we always seem to get partnered up, I'm not complaining as she always sends such amazing things. Thank you Kimberley! xo
The knitted dishcloth now sits under my Coffee Pot, it's too pretty to wash dishes with.
And I found more of the Forest Glade vintage Crown Lynn Dinner Set......13 pieces! I saved a search on Trademe and a couple of days later these turned up. About 30 minutes after I pushed the BUY NOW button, Mr H was having "a moment" in the kitchen over all my crockery and thinks I need to start collecting something that doesn't take up so much room. Bloody cheek! He hasn't seen these yet as he is away. I'm going to set the dinner table with the set tomorrow night. Can't wait to see his face as he never misses anything, ha!
Flowers picked up with the groceries, for the mantelpiece and table. Love a little bit of pretty colour about the house.
Have a great week!
