For this weeks thrifty finds I have been out and about to car boot sales. I love going to car booties this time of year, you can pick up some real beauties for really low prices and this week I managed to get each of my items for under a £1 pound.
I saw this really cute retro one-person tea pot at our local car boot, I have been looking for a teapot for a long time, although this one is not what I had in mind, I couldn't resist it, as I really liked the 70's pattern on it. It has a Polish mark on the bottom of the pot and it was 50p.
This next item was inspired after reading a post on Glass from Karen at her beautiful blog The White Approach . Glass has never really shall I say 'rocked my boat', but after seeing how beautiful Karen's glass vases are with fresh flowers in them, I decided to take a closer look next time.
So on Sunday when I saw this cute baby glass vase at the car booty I immediately had a second look.
The lady at the stall gave it to me for 50p, and when I got home and had a chance to look at it properly, the label said 'Scottish crystal' on it. Surprisingly for a small item it is very solid and the detail on the glass is amazing.
And my last item is this 'Noritake' China Blue Moon sugar bowl with lid. I was attracted by the blue flower pattern and loved the 60's look of the china bowl. I brought it for 99p.

I am always on the look out for new blogs to add to my reading list. I tend to gravitate towards vintage/thrifty/crafty blogs, and I have recently added a few to my blog roll (Thank you to the lovely Lakota at Faith Hope and Charity Shopping who always recommends brilliant blogs to read - grab a cuppa and take a look!)
That is why I love blogging, by reading other peoples blogs you can find so many other like minded people out in the blogging world.
There is always room for more!
