Money! Money! Money!

Friday evening I grabbed a hammer

and smashed open one of my Terramundi Money Pots

These pots are handcrafted in Italy following a 2000 year old design. Fill them with coins until they are full and then smash the pot and make a wish!

Saturday I helped a friend at a local boot sale, of course taking the opportunity to sneak away and make a few purchases for myself (which I'll show you later in the week).

I hope you all had a great weekend and my American friends a lovely Mother's Day

EDITED: For those of you asking I was able to bag up £125. £100 is being added to some money I was given for my birthday to put towards the bed I will need to buy when I move out of home and £25 was added to my boot sale purse to spend on treasures

Here are the CK goodies I picked up at Bicester Village on Saturday

I love my Stanley lunch box and you can never have too many tea towels.

To be honest I didn't think there were many real bargains to be had in the CK outlet. Most items were usual sale prices. Some items were only £1 or £2 off the original.

Bicester Village is definintely worth a visit. There are many lovely shops there and bargains to be snapped up.

I hope you've all had a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend

At Home With Rachel

Check out Rachel Ashwell's beach house on Oprah's site here

I have to confess it's a bit too white for my liking - I need a bit of colour! What do you think?

And good news for those of us pining for Rachel's next book installment it's available to pre-order here
