So today I thought I would share with you some of the little bits and pieces I have picked up for my home recently. As you know I love shopping in charity shops, but recently I have been trying to cut back on what I spend there, hence there hasnt been many posts! However I do have a lot of stuff that I have bought earlier on in the year that I can share with you!
We currently rent our home, which means I spend hours on pinterest pinning ideas for my dream home. I ignore the fact that most things would require me having a HUGE house but I have fun. So where I live at the moment I enjoy picking up little bits and pieces to add some personality to our house ...
Above though is not actually from a charity shop (I know shock horror) But I saw it in Next (a place I usually get ideas from but rarely buy from) and for £3 I couldn't resist. In our relationship we have always said never go to bed on an arguement and this seemed to fit with that theme. The heart lights were on sale in wilkos for £3.
There is a charity shop in Leicester called Life. I think its a stand alone charity shop and not part of a chain because I have never seen any others! Its on Granby Street and from outside doesnt look like much but I always go downstairs to there bric a brac and books! This wicker basket was £2 and is perfect for storing my face masks and little samples in the bathroom so they are always handy to pick up when I want one.
My favourite ever purchase is my sofa! We were looking for a new sofa for a while and I had in my head the one I wanted (I had seen it in Next ...) but with the pennies being tight I wasn't going to spend £400+ on a sofa. When I spotted this sofa in the window of the British Heart Foundation I ran straight in! When it was in the sale and only £50 I just had to have it! It is so comfy and cosy and the best thing I have ever bought! I am looking forward to making it a apart of the home we build together!
Have you bought any cute homeware?
