Charity Shop Find

Locally there are 5 charity shops I visit on a regular basis, anyone who does similar will know that some tend to be best for paperbacks or clothes while others seem to be teeming with pretty things for the home.  I don't buy absolutely everything for our house second hand but I prefer to wherever possible and had been resisting the charms of a brand new sweetie dish/bonboniere/trinket jar in an online shop for quite some time.  I'd also been trawling the charity shops to no avail and had almost decided I'd give up and buy the jar online when I came across this little beauty in Cancer Research for £1.50; one of my quickest dashes to the checkout in history!

Having had a good scrub in hot water and Fairy Liquid it has come up a treat and will probably take up residence on my chest of drawers in the bedroom or sit and catch the light on one of my living room windowsills.

Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday,
Jem xXx
