Been Shopping :)


Homebase have 20% off gardening this weekend, even on reduced items so i had a browse on the internet last night, I saw these solar lanterns reduced from £24.99 to £12.49 so i reserved the last 3 in the shop and got them for £9.99 each..
I looked around the really small garden centre but nothing caught my eye, I find Homebase plants are way more expensive than say B&Q..

They are floor lanterns..

There’s a TKMax nearby and i had to go look at the garden section, I love TKmax for the unusual items you can buy, from clothes to garden and household items. This is what i bought.

Not to everyones taste but i fell in love with it and think it will fit in perfectly with my style of planting :_

Lantern. £9.99.

And this small Table, Isnt it amazing, made of metal! Im thinking, wouldnt a plant look great inside of it? I thought it would of been quite expensive but when i read the label i was suprised. £24.99.

An Ikea mug next to the items so you can see the size of them lol.

You've got an eye for a bargain, YoungDaisyDee.
That seat looks amazing, as a seat or a climbing frame.
Sadly, my nearest TKM doesn't have a garden section, but I find Lidl worth a visit...always bargains.

We have a new National Heart Foundation shop, loads of lovely nearly new furniture, very reasonably priced.
I bought a nice coffee table. Am going to put the
old one on my container garden, to create height for some of the plants.
Happy rummaging !
