Otto Retro in Exeter......

On Tuesday I went here...... Otto Retro

If you live locally & love retro furniture do pay them a visit..... it's fantastic!!!

I've tried not to go because I knew what would happen & I was right!!! I fell in love with everything but I find it expensive. I went 3 weeks ago & saw this.....

I've been looking for one of these since I moved to the new house 3 years ago...I thought it would look great in the porch but now the porch is full!!!!

At £10 I didn't buy it but then spent the next 3 weeks thinking about it so I ran down before going to Brownies. I then had to get it home on the bus....... lots of people were looking at me & I was hoping they were thinking....'wow look at that fantastic plant stand'......however I think they were thinking.....'OMG look at that old piece of tat'!!!!

Now I need to find some plants to go on it..... I'm thinking of getting some nice fakes....what do you think??? Also need to find a home for it......look at those awful wires..LOL!!!

This is what I brought the first time.......

He's a nut cracker...... they had them in Sainsbury's at Christmas & I had it on my Christmas list but didn't get one. They were really cheap which is why they sold out...... this was on sale for £10!!! I managed to knock her down to £6 but I still think it was expensive.

Hope you're all having a good week.
