Thrifty Thursday

I don't think I've done one of these TT posts for a while, so here goes.

I bought this pink lidded Jamie at Home glass storage jar last week for £1.00 with every intention of giving it to my sister until half way home I realised it was the perfect colour and size
for the marshmallows that top off our hot chocolates. Sorry sis, this one's a keeper.

I have to say this new word verification is really annoying me. I've set my blog to comment moderation now so hopefully any lovely visitor I have here leaving a comment shouldn't be asked to decipher the two words with squashed up letters.


  1. Please let me know if that solves the problem, because the word verif thing is driving me bonkers and keeping me from commenting at blogs. xoxo

  2. I agree, it's ideal for marshmallows. I've changed to comment moderation too, but I've already had quite a few spam comments coming through now there's no word verification. At least I can just delete them, but it's annoying all the same.

  3. It drives me insane!!! LOVE your find. xxxx

  4. Cute jar Lisa! I can see why you wanted to keep it. I have to say I have a bit of a jar fetish is reaching mad levels now! lol!

    I am with you with this new comment form thing. It is driving me mad! I turned all mine off and people can now just comment. It seems to be working so far so good.

  5. I'm not surprised you wanted to keep the lovely jar for yourself.
    Hopefully you will be able to find another one for your sister.
    Much easier to comment now....just click 'publish' and that's it! :0)

  6. Thank you for turning off word verification, Lisa. I wish more people would do so - it's the bane of my life!

  7. lovely for your marshmallows ! I hate this new two word thing - I can't read them ! I don't really want to do comment moderation but may have to !

    Funny that you met the girl with the Raccoon too. I walked home with her. Melanie the Raccoon had just scared a dog in the post office & the dog peed on the floor & she got told off. She said it wasn't Melanie's fault !

  8. Snap!
    Have the same, with the same!!!
    Except the price - boo & hiss!

  9. You’ve done it again! Love it... have a lovely weekend Lisa X

  10. Love your jar. My daughter is having a Jamie at home party soon but expect to pay a lot more than you did. Great find. I'm glad it's not only me who's fed up with the word verifying. Have just spent ages trying to find how to cancel it without success. Can anyone tell me how please?

  11. Ah naughty sister :-)
    I haven't blogged for a good while and I'm a bit confused when leaving my comments ..
    Have a good week and please give S&T a cuddle from me :-)
