random crap notebook by happy jackson

I found myself buying lots of random little things when I went to cornwall recently.. I just couldn't help myself! one of my favourites items is (surprise surprise) another notebook for my collection that I spotted in newquay! I've seen this one online quite a few times so I finally caved and added this retro lunchbox into the mix as well. I always find myself obsessing over shells when I'm at the seaside so I picked up a few more of those too.

this is my most treasured charity shop find EVER. I literally squealed when I spotted this in a scope charity shop in penzance for only £4 and the best part? it still works! eeeep!

I've spotted these bowls on urban outfitters before so I recognised them in a little gift shop in padstow. I'm a fiend for buying china so I'm struggling to find a home for these new arrivals. I think I might have a de-clutter of my bedside table and use them to stash skincare in. I found the plate in another charity shop near st ives (I'll use this with some of my old china cups as I love to mix and match patterns.)

I found these recycled purses at the eden project and absolutely loved them! the shell jewellery box is pretty tacky so it was an instant winner for me, I also found this tin that I'll use to store trinkets or business cards in.


I wasn't going to buy this fabric lampshade but I changed my mind at the last minute and I'm so glad I did! there was quite a few colour variations but I opted for this slightly oriental looking design. I still have lots of frames to hang so I picked up some more postcards to frame from the galleries in st ives.

as nice as looks on my desk..I shall get around to hanging it in my dressing room (eventually)

hope you're all having a lovey bank holiday!
