Just a little red jug

Sometimes when I am down in the dumps I spend money (let’s be honest almost all of us do from time to time no matter how thrifty we are.) I try to spend it on non disposables and avoid chocolate and magazines. I like to find treasures instead that will brighten my day and cheer me up again and again.

Last week it rained and was grey all the whole day long. Struggling to lift a gloomy mood on a gloomy day I grabbed my purse and headed off to my local Cancer Research Shop and look at the little treat I found.

A gorgeous little French pottery jug just £1.75!

Emile Henry are a well established French kitchen ware company with great heritage. I have found one of these jugs for sale for £30 on ebay. But I am not selling. It is my happy jug.


It is just perfect to pop next to a picture of my mum and display a few pretty flowers.


£1.75 spent and a little brightness in my day.

Why don’t you pop on over to Magpie Monday and see the other second hand treasures being shared….

    What a fantastic thrifty find! It would go perfectly in my kitchen too with that gorgeous shade of red.
