Magpie Monday - Christmas is coming!

Phew, I managed to break my duck from last week.

Popping in the Save the Children shop, their festive window display made me feel quite Christmassy.

I managed to find this lovely silver candlestick for £1.99.  It's only Ikea but it will go nicely with my other candlesticks and make a lovely Christmas fire hazard display with loads of white candles.  I'm also on the hunt for any wooden or ceramic ones this shape that I can spray silver.



I also grabbed this red cake stand for £2.50.


Again, it's modern, but a reproduction of the vintage chrome folding fan cake stands.  It closes down quite flat so I can hide this away in the cupboard and the Old Man won't know I've bought yet another cake holder.  I thought it would look lovely with some homemade mice pies on.

Are you feeling all Christmasy yet?  Did you have any festive finds?

  4. Love the cake stand. I'm seeing how long I can last before I buy mince pies. Can't believe the shops are full of them already.

  8. I am so glad that I am not the only one starting to get excited about christmas. Emma-Kate took me to my first carboot and I am now in full christmas swing.

    Loving the red cake stand, brilliant find and I didnt even know that you could get ones that fold up...i've never bought a cake stand as I have no where to store one when not in use.

  11. Thanks for hosting the party. That cake stand is pretty cool. I need a folding one, because the ones I have are so bulky you practically have to have a cupboard just for them.
