Obviously, what with saving up for legal fees, moving costs and furniture lately, there hasn't been a lot of room in my budget for any fripperies. In fact, it's been rather good to have a blanket spending ban, combined with an ongoing decluttering of my life (selling bits and piece all over the place lately. So much so that I'm fairly confident I'm keeping my local post office in business, single-handed).
Having said that, here are a few of the things which I'd love to be spending my pennies on this week.
001: OK, so this is not house-related at all, but it's my latest love from Joanie Clothing. Want.
002 + 004: I noticed these on my Etsy recommendations recently and wasted no time in adding them to my favourites. These little critters make these cups soooo cute, without being entirely tricky to drink from, like some dino-shaped mugs I've had in the past. A little family of them for our morning coffee needs would be perfect, I think.
003: Every dining room table needs a salt and pepper set, right? And these are pretty cute. I'd leave them out on display all of the time, to be honest.
