Thrifty finds

I picked up this top after finding it on the first stall I looked at at the Vintage Village Stockport fair yesterday. White lace cropped tops like this and just very "me", so for £8 I didn't think I could leave it behind! It's fully lined and has a gorgeous scalloped detail at the bottom of the top and the sleeves, I can't wait to wear it with a nice pencil skirt.

I'm getting a teeensy bit obsessed with brooches at the moment, particularly cute ones like this, so my Mum let me pinch this off our big brooch cushion we have for the stall for free!

Yes, I do already have a yellow formica table, and now I have two! When we spotted this in a charity shop last week for just £20 we couldn't leave it behind. I had wanted a new desk for my office as I couldn't even get my legs under my old one it was so small, and it was all stained and not pretty too, so this has taken it's place! My Mum has let me have it as an early Christmas present too :)

I think crochet mats may appear in my thrifty finds until the end of time! I am seriously obsessed with them, and I'm constantly picking them up. My Mum got these from what might be the cheapest charity shop on the planet so they will have cost pennies!

There were a few packs of Christmas cards in a charity shop last week that someone had obviously made for them, and seeming they cost just £1.50 for a pack of six, I thought I'd get some! The black and gold is my favourite, but I love some of the cute animal ones too!
