COVET...To wish for Longingly.....


I just had to share with you something......Something which I have wanted so much for a while now. The Title is a word which has been brought to my Attention by Liz..a most wonderful person who I have been most fortunate to meet through blog land! After she said that she Coveted the Giveaway prizes which made me giggle of course!!!
Anyone reading may know I have a Birdcage addiction...and you may have also seen pictures of these beautiful items in blog land already! They are stunning!
I still COVET them!!....However until I can afford it...I managed to find...

In MATALAN!!! for £25!!!
I have to say I do love the home ware range there...and the Influence range have got a range by some great designers....this is from Laurence- Llewelyn Bowen influence he has a lot of opulent Black, Mercury, sumptuous accessories, Linda barker is very similar to her website very vintage chic style, Justin and Colin are more kitschy class and Anthea turner range is very pastels and pretty prissy!
If you haven't been recently then I would def suggest taking a trip there soon as there's lots of patchwork style cushions and Lovely tableware for very reasonable prices!!!
Back soon

I like the one you found really well, just as pretty as the others!

Covet is such a great word, lol, I don't use it often, but sometimes I just have to, when I see especially delicious goodies. Glad to hear it made you giggle.

Darn, that was a good buy in Matalan, wasn't it? It looks really good.

One day, when the light gets a bit better, I'll take some photos of the birdcage I have in the drawing room. Found it at a bootfair a couple of years ago, and love it to bits.

Jeanette said...

I agree with the others, those birdcages are covet worthy! The one you snagged is just lovely.

Purple Sparkle said...

oooh that's lovely! Matalan?! I bought a bird cage today as I've been coveting one for ages.. from the range for £9.99 - yay!

Ms B. Thrift said...

Ooh a fellow Matalan fan yey! I too love their stuff, they do great candles too!

Andi's English Attic said...

I never think about Matalan as it's not on my usual route of shops. Perhaps I should take a little diversion one day. The cage is wonderful. You must be over the moon. xx

Hi Annie

Great find, can join your other covetted items!!!

coco rose said...

Ahhh I have those at the top of my wish list too! They are gorgeous. I often stare at them all dreamily, but a tad pricey, so will stay on the wish list for a while longer! The Matalan one is fantastic though! I went to Matalan the other week and there was nothing there. Sometimes its amazing and other times a disappointment. But will have to trek out again and see if those babies are in store! Thanks for sharing the info! Have a fab day! xxx

Shabby Chick said...

Oh I LOVE those mirrors too, I think there's a picture somewhere on my blog from when I was ogling a bit of housey eye candy one day! That Matalan one is lovely though, we have one here but I haven't been in years, must check it out.

Everything about horse betting

The advent of simulcasting in the nineties made it possible for tracks to increase their own handle while boosting their revenues by accepting wagers on races from other tracks. Legalization of off-track betting facilities, phone wagering and internet wagering has created a climate where over 87% of the handle is now generated off-track. This may hurt race tracks' hot dog and popcorn sales, but should lead to increased profitability.

Horse racing is one of the world's oldest sports. It is followed world wide with ardor and passion. The aspect of betting, adds a flavor to the races and people are turned into millionaires over night. Money flows in and out of hands in this sport making it exciting and thrilling at most times.

In the 131 years that have passed only 11 horses have managed to accomplish what is arguably the most difficult feat in sports. Compared to the Triple Crown, no-hitters in baseball are an everyday occurrence; back to back championships in other sporting events, a dime a dozen; there have been more solar eclipses in our lifetime than Triple Crown winners and each year more people are struck by lightening than the total number of Triple Crown winners in history.

On paper, Barbaro is the horse to beat, and after his decisive win at the Kentucky Derby, he appears capable of beating all comers. But this is horse racing and no matter how it looks on paper we still have to run the race.

Finally, realize that all the various bookmakers have their own rules and policies regarding how they settle bets done through arbitrage sports betting when they have such irregular results. As with the advice on pricing, be sure to check the rules of the individual bookmakers before you place your bets.

Another way of identifying the best sports betting odds is to examine the money lines on the various sports books online. The quickest and simplest way to understand how to compute the odds and comprehend how the money line bet works is to take into consideration the amount of money one would have to bet in order to win one hundred dollars. Normally this figure is shown as a negative and a positive with the negative number indicating what one must wager to win x amount of dollars and the positive showing what one would win.

The Paroli System, of all the famed sports betting systems, is thought to be opposite that of Martingale. Where the difference lies is on the scheme that with the Paroli System, you start with one wager and then up the wager when you win rather than with a loss. This system lets the profit run and cut short the losses, which makes it appealing due to the fact that you don’t have to have a lot of money to be able to use it effectively.

Nonetheless, the reality of the matter is this: if you don't have a Selection System that is sound in every respect, then you are just as badly off as if you had no Selection System at all! And even if you find a good tipster service, you must still exercise a great deal of caution in making your final selections and look carefully at their success rate for the specific type of tips they are offering. If you fail to do this, then you can be certain of one thing: you will lose all your money somewhere down the road!
