New Years Eve

Well here I am, stuffing yet more chocolate and enjoying my blogging!  It's so exciting looking, in anticipation, to see if I have any more followers or comments!! So thanks to the ones I have had so far!
Tonight we are off to friends to eat yet more food, drink and play board games - to see in the New Year. 
Must admit I am already getting twitchy about still having the xmas decs up......we did put them up on the last weekend of November! Might start taking them down on Sunday, finish off on Monday and do some much needed housework, before getting out all my new purchases and xmas gifts.
So here's to more blogging! and making lots of blogger friends and a Happy New Year to you all!

My bargain buys

Here are some of the bargains I bought in the sales.......

I'm not normally a tea-pot collector but I couldn't resist this one, in all my fav colours, reduced from £8 to £4 in Next! I am going to put this on my new pine dresser, once I have finished painting it!!

Ahhhh......cupcakes! Had to have these lovely canvasses - again from Next and reduced from £10 to just £4!

This metal sign was also from my favourite shop of the moment, and was down from £7 to £2.  Thought this would be nice on the shelf above my pink spotty kettle.

This vintage looking glass cakestand - which I think would also look lovely with choccies on - was just £3.79 from Homebase.  Had to shop around a couple of branches before I could find one in stock though.

Can't wait to take all my xmas decs down now so that all my new purchases and xmas pressies can be displayed!

My first blog!!!!

Wow! at last I am actually writing my own blog instead of just reading others every evening!!  I have been facebooking for a while but am fed up with that so am turning my attention to this instead.  
I can't wait to show you all the pretty bargain purchases I made yesterday..................but first I have to take some piccies and learn how to download them!!
