My Latest Poundland Find…



My latest venture to my local Poundland was a complete surprise. A quite wonderful one at that. It’s been pretty quiet on the book front, but I was wandering around the home-ware aisle (mainly plastic pots etc, nothing too relevant) and suddenly I noticed lanterns.

Lanterns instantly appeal to me, I mean the whole romance of a candlelit surround, just is beautiful in my opinion. There’s also the idea of gypsies and hippies using them. I think this is meant for use in the garden, but I am already thinking it will look lovely on display inside, or even maybe hanging?

They were quite a few purple and blue ones but I was instantly drawn to this shabby cream one. I’ve seen a few of these around in other shops for a lot more money, so I am really am pleased with this little bargain of a find♥

  1. That's really pretty - definitely can't go wrong for a pound!

    My Mum got something very similar to this as a birthday present from her friend - at the moment it's still just sat on the kitchen side, as she can't decide where it fits best..

  4. I spotted those beauties in my local Poundland last week, aren't they great? We've got a corner of similar ones in the garden (shame we can't use them at the moment).
    I'd be tempted to buy a stack of them and hang them off one of my chandeliers to create a massive statement feature.
    Poundland rocks! xxx
