It’s that wonderful time of the month again where I get to window shop virtually on the internet and pull out all the things I like the most. The only negative being my undeniable need to have all these things (i’m normally pretty good at self control). This month I have found some incredible items and a good chunk of them were actually from Asda home range, which with it’s affordable price labels left me feeling pretty chuffed with my finds.
Lets get cracking!
MUSTARD POM POM CUSHION
An item that unfortunately I can only dream about having in my house. With six mischievous chihuahuas these cushions wouldn’t stand a chance of surviving more than ten minutes with the pom poms staying in tact. But isn’t it beautiful, affordable, and most importantly my absolute favourite colour. MUSTARD! Perhaps one for the bedroom as they aren’t allowed upstairs near the white carpet!
CREAM DESK LAMP
Isn’t this dreamy. I don’t thin you would necessarily have to even use this on a desk, it would make a really nice lamp on it’s own. I already have a very similar lamp but I was very drawn to this as my lamp is pure white and the copper detail on this one is so nice. This lamp (would you believe it is from Asda) so is predictably really good value for money.
Put it this was if my current lamp breaks for any reason this will 100% be my replacement! (And don’t worry I won’t be accidentally knocking it off the desk or pouring coffee on it)
FAUX EUCALYPTUS PLANT AND VASE
I have tried for many years to be an ‘earthy’ plant keeping person, but I have failed enough times to realise that faux is my way forward unless i’m happy with brown and dying plants. I have various faux plants dotted around my house but you do have to shop around to find realistic ones as there is nothing worse than a really plasticy looking flower. These branches and vase are so affordable and I think they have absolutely nailed the ‘realness’ they look pretty damn real to me!
CHICKEN TEA TOWELS
You all know my lifelong obsession with my feathered friends (yes all 28 of them) You are probably judging me right now for owning that many chickens! Anything with a chicken it on I am naturally very drawn to, add some pastel colours and a deep burgundy and i’m sold. This is probably one item on my favourites that I will be heading out to get. And don’t worry they are pretty affordable too!
CHICKEN DOOR MAT
I can only foresee one issue with this mat. I can’t see me actually wanting to wipe my feet on it because it is too damn cute. I mean look at it! We get through a fair few mats at home, especially outside the back door, little feet, big feet, paws and the occasional claw from a hen will pass this lots of time everyday. I don’t think I could subject this gorgeous mat to that location but I could definitely see myself having this somewhere in the house.
CREAM AND COPPER CAKE TIN
I have wanted a cake tin for such a long time but I have just never found one I really liked. This I really do, cream, copper and duck egg are my colours in the kitchen so it would go perfectly. There is a part of me that feels that if I’ve gone to the effort of making a cake it needs to be stored somewhere nice, not just in a stained tuppaware or an old Celebrations tin from 10 years ago (you know you’ve all done this)
OUT TO LUNCH SIGN
I spend a lot of my time at home pottering round the field with a bucket in one hand and a chicken in the other. If someone comes to my door thinking i’m in because my car is there they are sorely disappointed to knock and not be answered to. I cannot hear a thing in the field, everything is muffled by clucking and crowing so I though this would be a good sign to have on my front door so people know when i’m not available (Unless you’re the postman, if you’re the postman I’ve probably sensed your here and will be waiting on the other side of the door for parcels).
GOLD GLAZED POT
Whether I sound like a complete lunatic i’m not sure but I felt very drawn to this pot (much like a magpie to shiny objects). I absolutely love copper, brass and gold and this combination which is also distressed really appealed. As mentioned previously I have a variety of faux plants in the house and felt that this would be a really nice change from one of the very plain pots. they tend to come in, or to be honest anything else, make up brushes, cotton buds or jewellery.
MINI DECORATIVE PEOPLE
I fully take any accusations of being slightly mad for adding this one but I completely fell in love with them when I saw them. These are the cutest little people I have ever seen. I’m not sure why but I have always been drawn to very little ‘cute’ things and these are no exception. They have absolutely no purpose, are far too expensive for what they are but still I think they are totally adorable!
We’ve gone from a practical to a very random note to finish on, which sums me up as a person. Hope you enjoyed my August Home Favourites and I will be back in September with some more!
