I’m a swinging! #MagpieMonday

We’re in the process of sorting our house out and making it beautiful rather than just a living space, and as I’m sure some of you already know this is the perfect excuse to indulge in a little thrifty shopping! This weekend has been full of practical purchases such as some huge new bean bags which due to their colour have gained the unfortunate nickname from Boo of “the boobies..” (in honesty they do resemble boobies, but I hadn’t noticed that when I bought them.. so I need to dye the covers!).

Amongst the practical purchases, Imagine my delight when I came across this Swing-A-Way Ice Crusher in original box, admittedly I have no intention of ever using it as an ice crusher (unless I can make home made slush puppies?? – answers on a postcard please?).

When I opened the box (after getting it safely home – yes I know I should have checked the box BEFORE buying it..but it was £1!!) I was amazed to discover that it’s actually never been used! I love the retro box, so I’m trying to work out how to display my new kitchenalia without wrecking the box in the sunlight – any ideas?

Linking up with Missie Lizzie for Magpie Monday, have you found any terrific thrifty finds?
