Firstly some bright, cheap and cheerful outdoor cushions. I wanted some colour to make outdoor pop - and I was adverse to spending $30+ per cushion for the pugs to put their arses on! So when I found these for $5 and $10 each (including the insert) I thought I was not going to be able to do much better than that! Amazing how much nicer it makes the outdoor area look. Am almost inspired to sweep out there!

My next cheap and cheerful find was a glass cloche. I have had my eye on these for a while - but at $40 or $50 each I'd not found enough inspiration to put my hand into my pocket! So when I found them for $7 each, I was quick to snap up a couple! Am thinking I'll put one in the sitting room filled with some decor items - and I might put the other in Oscar's science room. No matter where they end up they'll look good - and I am so pleased I found what I was after at such a reasonable price.
My final find was designed to be used as a photo holder - but I immediately saw its potential as a little girl's hair clip holder! Adelaide has far too many hair clips and I've never really liked the canvas hair clip frames everyone else seems to have. So I thought this would be just the ticket to keep them organised and looking sweet on the inside of her cupboard door. And for $5 it hardly broke the bank. Adelaide is really impressed with the new addition to her room - and I'm thrilled she no longer has a drawer filled with hair clips!

So nothing hugely exciting, but a few bits and bobs to make the house look a little more tidy and finished. Can't wait to get the cloche in situ. Watch this space!
