The best things in life are free, or close to it.
I really believe it’s the little things in life I like the best. And often the thrill of finding something fantastic for hardly any moola is one of the best things in the world.
Like these cute plastic birdy whistles for $1 each at Vinnies.
And this dress which also cost $1 at Roselle Markets on the weekend. Replacing the hideous buttons that were on it cost $4, but that’s ok.
And this dress, which cost $10 from one of those cheapy shops (you know the ones). I always laugh because whenever I see floral, I hear my mothers voice in my head, telling me how much I used to hate it as a teenager. Just like she likes to remind Lynds how she liked to complain about being dressed in red when she was little and now black and red are pretty much her standard attire. Mums remember the funniest stuff sometimes.
Mum also got me these great cupcake liners from spotlight the other day. I avoid that place like the plague nowadays, having worked there for way too long, but I think these were bought in for easter, which was always a fun time of year to work there, having so many bunny related things around.And speaking of easter, I was not the only one who was totally thrilled to find bakers delight has FINALLY started making their choc chip hot cross buns!! Which is another awesome thing about easter. These aren’t the exact ones I bought, but they tasted pretty good! And I know it’s way too early to be thinking about easter, but there’s never a bad time for hot cross buns or any kind of baked treat in my books. Kx
