Taking the Mickey! ~ Magpie Monday



I've been a bit quiet on the Magpie Monday posts for a few weeks, mostly because our purchases have been less exciting to read about and more about starting school or entertaining Elvis while Boo is at school.

However, this week I thought I'd share a few of our finds, as they really made me smile!

First of all there are these fabulous pasta dishes, they caught my eye and made me stop and look at them:



While they're decorated with pasta shapes I think they have a seaside feel to them (i guess due to the pasta shell shapes!) and they're divine to hold. £2 later and the set were mine, we eat tons of pasta so they've already been well used!




Elvis loves Mickey Mouse, and in our attempts to financially tighten our belt we've rid ourselves of Sky (their broadband was dismal and tv was pricey without it). So we happily purchased him this little collection of Mickey goodies to make up for the loss of his favourite Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!






At £3 for the lot we were all happy, and the huge 25cm tall Mickey Mouse survived the washing machine and is as good as new! Now Mickey gets dragged to every meal and has already made close aquaintance with the pasta dishes..!


Linking up with Liz for Magpie Monday pop over and see all the lovely things the Magpies have been buying!
