Beach Cottage Budget Vintage Inspired Home ware
Tue 24th, Apr, 2012
Well Beach Cottage ladies, G’day to you, today I have some more budget home wares to show you, not coastal or beachy decor really – but fit in here very nicely thank-you-very-much for a beach cottage coastal style decor.
These are the retro-inspired vintage tins that have been in all the boutiques for a few years now…ones where I have oooohed, ahhed, heart has skipped a beat, picked them up and very quickly put them back again…particularly in the Frenchy shop that is near to me, where, cough, a whole heap of things are French via China. Like these.
Beach Cottage blog readers from near or far, these babies come to you my way of that little store lots of people love to have an opinion on. Aldi.
Personally I am a secret Aldi stalker….I first started going there when we first came to Australia, mostly because I was pretty surprised that my grocery shopping was, in effect, cut down to only two players, Woolies and Coles…and so when Aldi opened up near us that gave us another place to shop…
In Beach Cottage Land nowadays, a trip to Aldi always results in something interesting, there haven’t been many things that I have been disappointed with to be honest, and if they are vintage-inspired and putty coloured, at super-budget prices, well that’s all the better.
Now I know that a lot of you reading this are from different places in the world, for those of you that have access to Aldi, I have learnt that the offers go around the world with different products…so if you haven’t seen these yet….you will probs be getting them soon or when the season is right for you (not sure what season a Laundry pail goes in but you know what I mean)
These were in a few different colours, a pink, a more beige brown and this named ‘grey’, I ummmed and ahhed about whether to get the whole range or not…but in the end thought I could always find a use for all of these in my life…so pleased I did…but for sure I won’t be using them for pegs, laundry powder or soaking undies
The small peg one is in the bathroom for bits and bobs.
This one is not going anywhere near the laundry room, it has a lid with a suction on it so well be somewhere in the kitchen, possibly to store flour that is not yet opened…
And the pail is going to be a bin in the study…I have been looking out for something to replace the white plastic IKEA one for a while…this will hit the mark, but I didn’t think you’d be wanting a picture of a bin
So that’s it from the beaches for today, hope you enjoyed this budget homewares broadcast? Gotta say I have something else to show you, it’s white, soft, it’s does not move (as in it’s not Barley) and it makes these look ugly, haha…next time.
See ya round kiddos
