We're fortunate to live near a Shopping Outlet Village where clearance/factory reject items are sold for much lower prices. It was in the Next Outlet shop that we found some fab things for our living room & also some others for our dining room, which is next on our list to decorate.
I thought that this was a nice thing to have on our windowsill in the lounge as it picks out the lime green from our wallpaper. It cost £4 at the Next Outlet.
We also saw these 2 short, black glass vases for £2 each. They have a couple of minor scratches on them but nothing that it really obvious. They are currently residing at either end of our mantelpiece.
These 2 bottles are currently in our dining room. The heart one (a bit scratched, as you may be able to see in the photo) cost £1 & the "Do Something you Love Everyday" one cost £1.50. I just really liked these & for the prices I couldn't resist!!!
My Mother-In-Law actually bought this for me for £3 in the Next Outlet. This is also in our dining room on our windowsill & is bringing a little bit of happiness to the room!
We found some lovely wallpaper for our dining room at £3 per roll in Next as well (more on this another day). The colours in it are purple & pink, so I wanted to use purple as the main accent colour. I saw this massive vase behind the cash desk I HAD to ask whether it was being saved for anyone. Luckily for me it wasn't, so I managed to snatch this up for £8 (originally £35).
This morning we took a little trip to our local Cash & Carry. This shop is FANTASTIC, especially when it comes to plants - no doubt you'll hear more about it in the coming months as we get out into the garden! When we got there we saw that they had cushions on offer - 4 for £5. Low & behold they had the PERFECT colour to match the blue/turquoise in our wallpaper, so we now have a bit of colour on our sofas:
I also couldn't resist bringing home a few bunches of my favourites - carnations. At 20p per bunch who was I to refuse?!!!
I have a vase on our living room windowsill & also some more carnations in the small vases on our fireplace.
