My obsession knows no bounds…



Today, my shopping obsession took a new twist, oh, and I bought these tea and sugar jars.

I bought these two jars today almost by accident, and whilst at work.

I was leaving a meeting with one of my lovely design clients on Barton Retail Park, Moreton Hall, Bury St Edmunds, when The Factory Shop started calling me.

As it was near enough next door to my client I thought it would be rude not to pop in and support my local community.

I came away with these two jars. Not sure why. You could say a totally random purchase. I don't drink tea and I don't take sugar.

But they are dotty* to go with my dotty collection, which basically sums up my state of mind at the moment!

Total spent today: £8

*While polka dots are ancient, they first became common on clothing in the late nineteenth century in Britain. At the same time polka music was extremely popular and the name was also applied to the pattern, despite no real connection between them.

The elderflower champagne we brought round simply exploded every where in your kitchen.
