Happy November! Sorry for my absence, I’m aware I’ve not posted in well over a week (oops) which I’ve never done before. But I’ve been super busy lately, including finally landing a nice new job! It’s similar to what I do already except for a totally different company and I will save 30 miles and over an hour a day in traveling. So I’m very exciting to be starting that next month, although I will be a little bit sad to say goodbye to my first real ‘grown up’ job. But onwards and upwards!
Last week I popped into Dunelm Mill for a quick browse and managed to find some amazing bits and pieces on their clearance shelves. I had a devil on my shoulder telling me to buy them all as they were such a good price, even if I didn’t need them, but I gave in and bought them all! Some of the products were slightly faulty, but nothing a bit of glue and paint wouldn’t fix, so I got some great bargains, and all for less than £6 in total!!
I bought these nice photo frames which were originally £5.99 and £6.99, but I got them for £1.49 and £1.69. The bigger one had a slightly loose frame which I glued back on securely, and the small one has a slight chip out of the top, which I plan to paint over. I like the floral backgrounds them have inside them, I just need to get some photos printed now!
This pink wooden photo frame was only 69p, and was still all wrapped up so is in perfect condition. And the cute little baby blue love heart was only 37p!! I bought one for me and one as a little pressie for my friend, I couldn’t not buy them at that price.
This floral heart shaped hanging photo frame was only 49p, and it has white satin ribbon and a little mini wooden heart hanging from the top too. Would make a nice stocking filler but I’m keeping this one for myself!
This little floral wooden box was originally a photo box, and when you pulled out each letter it had little sleeves for photos to go in. But I don’t have photos anymore, so I pulled out the sleeves and glued the four wooden slats together to make one lid. So now it’s just a pretty box! It was reduced to only £1.74 because it was slightly chipped on the inside, but not noticeable. And you can put a little photo in the front too!
