All things bright and beautiful

Whilst out shopping in Manchester at the weekend I popped into Primark and picked up a few bargains. First of all I could not help myself when I stumbled across the reduced to clear section and spotted bed shorts for £1, I paid for 2 pairs the pale blue and pink and then went back and bought them in a floral print too. Once I had got home I went back the next day and bought the pyjama bottoms for £5 and 3 tea towels at £1.20 each.... what a bargain. I have decided to turn a pair of bed shorts into two lampshades as they are just the right size and also the print is very pretty.  

Three pairs of pretty bed shorts

Vintage rose style tea cloths

Just a glimpse of how the bed shorts will fit a lamp shade
(You get the idea)

Bird on a glass bottle 

I also picked up this lovely glass bottle with a bird stopper from TK Maxx for £2.99 my partner did not see the pretty side of this but I knew it would go lovely in the bathroom, I wish I had bought two of these because they would of made lovely gifts. Enjoy your day!!
