Oh the possibilities.....

Every time I pull up outside T.K. Maxx I get a rush of adrenalin. What will I find today? Will today be the day when I get the one thing I have always wanted (there are many) at the best price ever? I always take a trolley, just in case, the baskets are pushed to one side in disgust. I am going to find so many wonderful things that only a trolley will do!  The truth is, more often than not, I only manage to find one or two items to feed my addiction. What despair! Then there are days like my last visit to T.K.M last weekend. JOY!!! Can you hear those church bells 'aringing?

I have to say that I was getting a little concerned that it was going to be a "lean" shopping trip, then I spotted this....
A Cath Kidston King size duvet cover and pillowcases for less than half the usual price. Be still my beating heart!
I love Cath Kidston fabrics, they are so cottagey and fresh looking.
I must say that finding these really made my day. Do you think I should get out more?

After wandering around a little longer I came upon this little fella and he jumped in my trolley and said "take me home with you".
I know a little girl who will fall in love with you, my little bunrab, especially when your little basket is filled with chocolate eggs! I nearly always manage to find unique seasonal decorations at T.K.M.In this country we are quite limited on what is available so it is quite refreshing to find such different items.

I adored the Liberty shopping bag  sold in aid of Comic Relief  and just had to have one!
This wasn't cheap at £12.99 but it is made by Liberty so I think it is worth it!

Loved this cute tablecloth, very French looking! Florals are very fashionable at the moment in interior design which is ok with me!

 Pretty tea towels almost too good to use!

Shabby chic photo frame, can never resist these! I wonder whose piccie will go in this?
Also picked up some hand cream and a couple of gifts for my daughter.
Altogether a good shopping trip! Can't wait for the next one!

Carly sent me here as I blogged about my TK Maxx Cath Kidston finds too :) I love that duvet, ours didn't have it so I only managed to get the pillow cases but they are so cute on my daughter's bed. Happy Friday xx

Hi visited me and made a comment that you also had a pair of boots...and indeed you do. I think I made a comment on yours as well..just so sweet. I would have loved to have the rose covered ones..but these fell into my perfect to experiment with.

I LOVE this kind of shopping when you are not looking for anything in particular, just looking for things that strike you...and make you smile and feel you have really FOUND a treasure you will enjoy!
:) Yes? :)

Today I picked up the gravel to fill my little plaid boots...and flowers and a couple of tiny ivy and some delicate white alyisium. Is that how you spell it? Probably not...but you know what I is tiny and white and we shall see.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my posts. They are appreciated!
