Money! Money! Money!

Friday evening I grabbed a hammer




and smashed open one of my Terramundi Money Pots




These pots are handcrafted in Italy following a 2000 year old design. Fill them with coins until they are full and then smash the pot and make a wish!


Saturday I helped a friend at a local boot sale, of course taking the opportunity to sneak away and make a few purchases for myself (which I'll show you later in the week).


I hope you all had a great weekend and my American friends a lovely Mother's Day


EDITED: For those of you asking I was able to bag up £125. £100 is being added to some money I was given for my birthday to put towards the bed I will need to buy when I move out of home and £25 was added to my boot sale purse to spend on treasures

What a shame you have to smash it, but what fun giving it a whack with a hammer. I broke 2 of my brand new cups and 2 brand new glasses last week (within 3 days of each other to be exact) I had only had them for a few days so I think Ive smashed enough things for awhile.....hopefully! X

P.S I also fell off the settee and broke a chair!!!!
