Thrifty finds in the Hazel and Blue household are now extending to the next generation!
My little girl has always enjoyed charity shopping with me, she will happily play and admire the second hand treasures on display, just as much as I do. My older Boy tends to enjoy car boots more, and in the warmer months we go to them together, with a few pounds in our pockets looking for treasures and action toys. I have never been one for spoiling my children and thankfully they do not seem to ask for much! I would rather spend a few pounds buying them something that they truly treasure, and will stay with them for a long time, than a one minute wonder!
This week I found this pretty mermaid little dish at my local charity shop, my LG loves Mermaids, she recently got a few Disney bath ones for her birthday, so when I spotted this on the shelf I knew she would love it!
It was a bargain too, at only 50p.
We brought this decorative decoupage wooden treasure box, whilst browsing at our local house clearance shop. I think it was the pink colour and the pretty motifs that caught her eye, as she brought it over to me and asked if she could have it. It was £2.00 and she puts all her plastic rings, feathers and handpicked flowers in it!
The red ladybirds appear all over the box and they invite you to open the box.
And finally this is her China trinket box, we brought at our local town fair, on a charity table for 20p (No kidding!) It was a serious bargain, it has no chips on it and we when brought it the owner had put in some mini pink shiny bath balls inside it.
This week I am linking in here at Liz's Magpie Monday and here at Sophie's Flea Market finds, who is also celebrating her blog anniversary as well!
That you so much for all your lovely comments last week, I do love reading them all.
