An apple a day...



Having been recently inspired by Vix’s fruitful adventures in apple scrumping. I decided to show you all something that has quite possibly been my favourite find of the summer months. Working all summer long has meant my time spent at car boot sales this year has been reduced quite so, which saddens me a little because I know I have missed out on doing what I love most.

But what is it they say about quality not quantity, if there is one find that instantly charmed me and will forever remain a favourite one pound purchase it rightfully has to be this one...



A plastic apple ice box.



Completely insanely tacky in all ways possible, just the way I like.
I knew the likelihood of me using it as an ice box was quite unlikely, therefore as soon as I got home I found an alternative way to store some of my haberdashery favourites.

Steve Jobs
With a day so sad about the news of Apple founder Steve Jobs, it really does make you realise the impact somebody can have on the world.

  10. Haha! I love it! It's so damn cute! I would have never used it as an ice bucket either, I would have probably filled it with sweets! I have a giant cupcake that is filled with Haribo at the moment. xxx
