You know those shiny little disks you carry around in your purse? The gold coloured ones. Yeah, one of these. A pound, a quid, a Plymouth Sound (s'cockney, innit) or £1, however you phrase it or write it, a blinkin' pound.
If you exchanged one of those in my local charity shop a few months ago they would have given you this Lloyd Loom blanket box in return.
Umm, yeah. Amazing, right?
I know a lot of people would paint it or recover it but I rather like it the way it is (although the small torn area on the lid will end up patched up sooner or later, panic ye not) and it fits perfectly in our bay window as a seat, plus it nicely stores our bed linen which is *Kath and Kim* is a boon, because we're rather lacking in storage in our new flat (actually the storage is pretty good but we have rather a lot of stuff to test the storage.)

P.S. Have you thrifted anything nice of late?
