All for Autumn

Helen from Most Wanted asked a host of bloggers (including me!) to pick out some nice things for £50 or less that will spruce up your home this Autumn (you can read more about it here). With a canny eye, you can easily change the look of a room on a tiny budget. Seeing as most of my budget is tiny, most of the time, the challenge rather appealed to me.

Virtual money in hand, I rootled about the interwebs and this is what I found.

1. Mod Orange Sterno Pot from The White Mole, $28.
2. Hand Water-Coloured Fox Gocco Print by Lizzy Stewart, $10.
3. Miniature Raindrop (Orange) by Ashley G, $10 (I'd be tempted to buy a few of these, they'd look great grouped on a wall).
4. 'Hubert est pensif' Owl cushion by Caroline Selmes, €24.00 (her other designs are lovely as well, you could buy two and still stay within budget!)
5. Set of six acorn coasters from Wooden Donkey, £12.
6. Deer & Vines Print by Esoule, $25.
7. Pair of Mid-Century Teak Candlesticks from 27thAVE, $22.50.
8. Beetroot Tea Towel by Lush Designs, £10.
9. Large Embroidery Hoop Chalkboard by Bliss In A Teacup, $45.

So there you are, a bit of vintage, a bit of handmade and hopefully still some money in your purse! What would you buy with £50 riiiight now?

Love it all. I think I'd need more than $50. I have seen some beautiful things posted today. Does that make me greedy? xx

Excellent rootling. Those coasters are to die for and the beetroot teatowel might just have to be mine.
