Today I have arranged to meet up with Bex and the boys at St Lukes mall.
For a change of scene.

While there I hope to find some little, flat glass dishes to put the candles on,  above the lounge fireplace.
The old ones have left stains on the mantle, so I don't want that to happen again.  As it is, I have to repaint the mantle sometime before Sunday's Open Home.

So... that's about it for now!  No plans after the mall... hopefully I will clock up plenty of steps while out and about.


1.41 pm:
Well... I've  had a wonderful morning with Bex and the boys.  We wandered around the mall, had lunch and just had a nice time really.
I looked for a present for Stew, but didn't see anything worth getting.
I also looked for little dishes to go under the candles but no luck there either, unless I wanted to spend $50+ on coasters?  Nope.  

On my way home I decided to pop into the Hospice and Op Shops in Onehunga.   Found the perfect little dishes for the candles !  They don't match, but hey... they are cute...

 ABOVE:  I love them, and the best thing?  Cost me $6.50.  You just have to love op shops.

End of Day:  Yaa, I didn't have to cook tonight, takeaways for us.   Steps so far today:  6,020.  Not that good, but I will get a few more in before I head off to bed.

  2. Perfect dishes for the candles. You could pass these on to Bex complete with candles, then you wont have to pack them.

      I was going to say, yes, you could give them to Bex, but you could also, I don't know, keep them? Sorry Bex! I just get the feeling Chris loves those candles, they have been on the mantelpiece for a few years now at least! Penny

    3. They are new candles Penny... Bex can have the old ones... sadly the old ones have lost their smell though. *smiles*

  3. But you could go shopping and get more/better ones *smiles* I thought I would get a bite....

  4. The dish under the blue one close to camera looks like one half of a little candy dish I got for my 21st birthday. Two identical pieces which fit together. Lovely!

  5. Love the candles very you.... Hospice shop up your way is so reasonable ours is way overpriced...
