Hope you're all having brilliant weekends! I wanted to share some of my latest discoveries with you, to try and banish the Sunday night blues...
I was recently introduced to the Rules of Tea Duelling, and can't wait to take part in one. Anyone fancy a challenge?
My fabulously talented friend Lucy has opened an Etsy shop. I cannot stress enough how beautifully made Lucy's products are; she certainly doesn't subscribe to my "Bodge It Until It Looks Ok From Far Away" style of crafting. Lucy's also got some gorgeous Halloween bunting up at the moment; perfect if you're planning to throw a scary soiree!

I wish I had the space, money, and general piratical fabulousness to pull off this chair:
How fun are these cups? A ceramic version of the classic Heads, Bodies, Legs drawing game, in three different combinations of characters.
I've just stumbled across Mellybee and fallen in love with everything in the shop. I'd definitely recommend checking the site out get some bargain Christmas presents in early. These are some of my favourite pieces:

And, last but definitely not least, I was seriously psyched to find out Tiger has opened a shop in Brighton!!! Eeep! I met up with two girlfriends yesterday specifically to go Tiger shopping, and we all went just a little bit crazy. It's like Paperchase, the homewares section of Ikea and Rice gave birth to a three-way baby.
These are some of the goodies that I bought (afraid I can't show you all of them, because some of the things I bought are presents. This year I am determined to be Totally Prepared for Festivemas), and I think they were pretty bargainous too!
1. Black candles for my Halloween party - £1 for little one, £2 for big one
2. Extendible duster (owning one of these makes me far happier than it probably should) - £1
3. Adorable sewing tin - £2 (which I thought was a bargain anyway, and then I found out it was full of sewing equipment too! Pins, scissors, needles, thread, needle threader, unpicker, tape-measure, thimble...)
4. Tiny ceramic-lid storage jars - 2 for £1. I have to admit they're a bit rubbish at sealing tightly shut, so probably wouldn't keep spices etc. very fresh, but they're perfect for storing buttons
5. Plastic toothpicks/cocktail sticks - £1
6. Beautiful pink size 6 crochet hook - £2. Tiger has loads of different colours and sizes, all £2.
7. Wooden chopsticks - £2.
