Retail Therapy

Yesterday I was having one of those days where you just don’t feel quite right!
Nothing really happened to make me feel odd, and I didn’t feel ill.
Just not quite myself.
So after work I took myself off to the dreaded big "T" supermarket to get petrol & I though I would pop in and get something yummy for dinner.
Hoping yummy dinner might help my mood.

The big "T" had something I have been looking for for ages.


What do you think?
I liked them immediately, especially the spots and they were in my price range at £10.
They will be our everyday cutlery, we can also use them to take to work in our lunch boxes.
While I was taking a picture of them for you I thought I would also snap a few of my pretties in my kitchen, some old & some new.


These Sunday glasses came from my Saturday stint in the CS and were perfect for trifle which I made when friends came to dinner a couple of weeks ago.


My Keep Calm and Carry on Poster that was found already framed in TKMAXX a while back adorns my kitchen wall.




My fridge has a couple of little bits of memorabilia style bits on it, a magnet & post card.

I love my new measuring cups my MIL bought me for Christmas & my china milk carton.


My Fortnum & Mason picnic hamper sits on top of my fridge looking after my saved jam jars, ready for the summer jam making season.

I found these little tea plates in the CS last week, and had to give them a home.


I just loved the pattern.
I’m feeling much more normal today, and have even had a lunch time expedition to a couple of CS near work.
I did get some lovelies, but more about them next time.
Sometimes everyone needs a bit of retail therapy, even if it is the penny saving kind.
Have a lovely Friday.
Luv


P.S. I'm thinking of holding a 100 followers Giveaway. 
With a Vintage CS feel so keep in touch only 10 more to go.

Hi Sophie, you are one of the lucky people that seem to have found CS's that stock things other than clothes (that are not vintage/retro). How lucky are you?
I went to that place yesterday as the teenangel needed photos for application forms and I didn't see the lovlies, maybe I should move?!

What lovely things!
That cutlery is a bargain - I've had my eye on a CK set but may have to settle for the big T version instead!

What lovely things! Your spotty cutlery and CS glasses are so lovely! I love looking round the CS, more than any other kind of shopping I think, they are like little Aladdins caves. :) xxxx

oooh - you have some lovely bits around the home. I love the glass holders and as for the keeping calm and carrying on I bought the book and put a quote from it on my blog not so long ago!! Fantastic!
