I’m loving the new homeware items available in shops this season. Everything seems so much more colourful when the sun comes out! I still need to take a trip to Ikea, but it always seems like so much effort. I can’t help but buying cute little things for the home if they’re a good enough price. I probably don’t need half of the things I buy, but they’re just so sweet! I could spend hours browsing around being inspired by beautiful interiors. I’ve recently come across some stunning shabby chic floral wallpapers which make me wish I had a blank canvas room to redecorate!
Here are my most recent homeware buys:
I’ve recently grown my collection of Cath Kidston mugs that I’ve been accumulating over the last few years. To be honest I don’t often use mugs as I’m not a hot drink drinker, but I love these oversized crush mugs from Cath Kidston. I have one on my desk which I keep pens in, and one for work. I tend to buy them from Amazon where they’re often discounted and free delivery too.
I have a bit of a fetish for cake stands and I’ve got more than enough, so now I’ve moved my obsession onto cake slices instead! Why use a normal butter nice when you cut cake when you can use one of these beauties! I bought both of these off Amazon too. The one with the floral ceramic handle and stainless steel blade is by Katie Alice and it was £9.99. This is probably more practical than the other, but the Floral Porcelain one was only £2.99! I love them both!
I had my eye on this Candy Rose post box from Dunelm for a while, and I finally got round to buying it recently! I’ve hung it on my bedroom wall next to my door and it’s really handy. I ask my Dad to post my letters that arrive in there, and I also use it to keep my ‘to do’ bills and paperwork. It’s quite handy to have and it’s so cute! It matches my bedroom decor too!
On a casual browse around Home Bargains (it is possible to leave this store empty handed?) I picked up this tablecloth. It was less than £3 (not sure if it was £2.49 or £2.99) which is so much cheaper than anywhere else for a PVC table cloth! It’s a big one too, perfectly fitting our dining room table. It has a cream colour background with an adorable kitchen print on it, featuring jugs, cups, teapots, and cupcakes.
I’ve been looking for a cute beach towel for my holiday, but they all seemed to be over £10 which seems crazy for a towel?! But I managed to find this ice cream towel in Matalan, which is possibly from the kids section, and it was only £6. I love the mint green polka dot background and hot pink print!
More Dunelm bargains, I saw these two beauties on their clearance shelf which had a 75% off sign on. The pastel pink pail scanned through the till at 99p, and the polka dot jug was only £1.64!! I absolutely love the jug as it suits the duck egg blue colour scheme of my dressing room. Such a bargain! It’s amazing what you can find in the sales sometimes.
And finally, although not much of a bargain, I bought these Cath Kidston wine glasses! They’re not actually made from glass, they’re acrylic, but they’re quite solid and look the part. They were £5 each, which is a bit crazy expensive really, but they were too pretty to resist! They will be nice to use for al fresco dining in the summer!
