Head Space and some Thrifty Finds

I needed to clear my head (bad working week, office politics and a few tears) so what better way than to visit the tip shop during lunchtime.

This little guy was sitting out the back, quite serendipitous, seeing as we are going to see ‘Gnomeo and Juliet’ on Sunday. (Its actually me dragging the family to see this one). We will have a leisurely stroll around the Trash and Treasure markets beforehand. We haven’t been to the markets for months now.

Another Quality Streets tin to add to my collection (3rd tin down).

A cute small trophy, you can never have enough of these. Inscribed "Casino Judo Club, Junior Instructor".

An old shower rose, I wish ours was like this; I hate the water saving ones. This might become a project for a garden feature?? ** sorry no photo**

Last but not least, an unusual pokerwork Sluis (Netherlands) wooden wall plaque. I found it interesting so had to bring it home, it might even be available on Ebay soon.

I felt alot better after clearing my head with a bit of treasure hunting!

The bad work week must be in the air, I had one of those days yesterday. I had an afternoon shopping to help me forget :)
