The thrift fairy

Wow, doesn't time fly? My last entry was at the beginning of the month and now it is almost Christmas. Shopping centres are full of busy people on the hunt for presents. To be honest, I would prefer to buy presents during the sales if I could. Makes more sense money-wise, right?

The thrift fairy has been good to me recently and yesterday I bought this Canon lens for £3.00. Who can turn down such a great offer? I spent a lot of yesterday taking snaps of my beautiful new dress which I bought a few weeks ago from another charity shop for £4.00. It was actually from the kids section and is aged 9-10, but because of the babydoll shape it fits bigger sizes. It's a wonderful corduroy material and reminds me of Christmas lol. The lace collar is actually detachable and was given to me by my wonderful friend Julia. It's the perfect match, don't you think?

Mystic ball

Sorry for the delay in posting. I have been feeling very down in the dumps recently and have been slobbing around in my PJ's eating pringles.
Here is a beautiful ring which I picked up for £1.00 in the Eleanor Lions hospice charity shop recently. The colours are amazing and change colours from certain angles, from clear to blue, to pinks and reds. It reminds me of a mystical ball or something. Such a precious little piece and I was so happy to have found it for a great price because I know a lot of charity shops price jewellery up quite a bit. It's a tiny bit too big for me but I still wear it. I am used to wearing big rings, even my engagement ring is still too big after having it sized smaller to a custom size.
