Some sale things!

All got in the £3 bag unless otherwise stated!

Soup bowls - I love the deep blue colour. I actually got 5 of these.

Pink cute Arthur Wood vase/urn thingy!

A chicken - no more needs to be said :) Although Anya did confuse a lady when the lady said 'Of course you don't get green chickens' and Anya replied 'Well my Mummy makes green chickens!' The lady did look confused!

A gorgeous pale pink and turquoise Poole pottery teapot.

Some little bits and bobs for the what nots in my craft room.

A fabulous dish - not sure if it is ovenproof but I will find out later this week :)

A fabulous flask - love the little spout :) I have to check to see that it works before taking it to craft fairs with yummy fruity tea in it.

Apparently Matt said no very loudly when I picked this board up but I didn't hear him - lalalala! It has been used as a paintbrush resting place so it's not going to be used for chopping here but I have the perfect place in my kitchen to hang it instead.

A cute house cross stitch for the craft room.

Some funky ties to craft with.

A fab pvc shopping bag.

Some black shoes that remind me of tap shoes although they don't tap. These were 50p on half price Friday.

Some fab red patent shoes :)

Some comfy red shoes!

Some white ballet shoes - not sure what for but I couldn't resist! 10p on half price Friday.

And a set of these 3 'school dinner' plates - one green, one red and one yellow. Minus the food obviously - this was Tara's lunch yesterday!

And these weren't from the sale but a birthday gift from my mum and dad! I'd spotted them in a charity shop before Christmas with my mum and she braved a nasty snowstorm to go back up and get them for me!! The patterns are fab :) More sale things once they have been washed and dried.

Can't believe you got all that for £3. Well done.
I'm a collector of Poole Pottery so I'm quite jealous of that lovely teapot you picked up.
I'm also loving those school dinner plates - it makes meal times fun for smaller children.

Oooo lovely stuff. I've got some soup bowls like those but mine are green with matching saucers. Twiglet loves them, think they were 25p per set. You are a top bargain hunter.
