How've you been?
My day has been filled with bargains and oddities. Let's start with the bargains, shall we?
I popped into the New Look sale on my way home (damn those huge red signs in the window saying DRESSES! FIVE POUNDS!) and walked out with my 8 millionth piece of novelty knitwear. Isn't he precious? I think I'm going to call him Renard.

Then, whilst grabbing our dinner from Tesco, I accidentally
You might think that's some rather excessive, but I reckon I've been rather restrained today, really... I mean, just LOOK what I found in Lewes Antique Shop:
|Excuse the shoddy photo here. If you can't tell, this is a bag of pinecones. |
You know what put me off about decorating with pinecones at Christmas? How dang expensive they are. I mean, a girl has to EAT people- so one can't go frittering all one's money away on pinecones. If only I'd known sooner that I could've picked some up for a mere £2 (and antique ones, no less!)
To be fair, I shouldn't expect too much from this stall, because I've previously seen them selling last-season's Primark as vintage, daahling, for more than it originally cost...
And then, just when you thought things couldn't get any better...
|FOURTEEN doll faces, for a mere £10|
I don't even know where to start with how creepy this is, or what I love about it the most. Perhaps the fact it's a bulk purchase? I mean, why buy one doll face when you can buy 14?! Or the fact that Joy has chosen to display them like a celebratory fruit basket for cannibals....
To top off the oddball sundae that has been today, I spotted this poster gracing the platform opposite on my way home from work today.
I have NO IDEA what a "Mr Tom's Tomface" is, but I really want to make Tom do it.
Have you seen anything strange lately? A bucket of teddy bear legs, perhaps?
