Magpie Monday hitting the jackpot

I regularly watch antique shows and think I'd love to spot one of those , but sometimes when you go into charity shops it's the same old tat, those copies of fifty Shades of Grey , knitted doll toilet roll holders (classy) and a pair of flares circa 1978.

But the other day as I waltzed into the local Charity shop I spied two items and I just knew I had to have them.

The items in question are a Victorian coal scuttle and an arts and craft table all for £20 the cat however is my own. I really think I need an Aspidistra plant to out into the coal scuttle I think it would suit it magnificently.


  1. Good bargains there. Love the shape of the table.

  2. I'd love buy an old painting because it's pretty and discover it's worth four figures!

  3. The table is really beautiful. Did you decide whether you're going to paint it or leave as is?

    1. I think I am going to leave the table although ..I may be tempted..

  4. I think you should keep Jack in the coal scuttle. It's a bit of respite for him from the evil paws of Rollie.

  5. a nice hanging plant to drape down the table. You could send us the col skuttle and we will use it for coal.
