Thrifting by the sea, again.


So, I haven't found any vintage sheets in Brisbane for a few months. There are just none anywhere. Imagine my shock at finding this little pile shared between two neighbouring coast op shops. There are duplicates of two and the colours are so complimentary, all those purples and greens. I thought you might want a close up too.





And I fell in love with these measuring cup ducks.


and this wonderful sunny yellow pyrex dish, with a lid!


But my other absolute favourites were these two matching baskets that I nabbed from an opshop on the outskirts of town as we first left home to head up the coast.





There was also a gorgeous milk glass dish that I almost walked right past but every photo was out of focus. Those little white hobnails are tricky to capture but I will try soon because there is nothing better than adding a missing piece to a collection.

Linking in with Sophie for more thrifted treats.

  5. It's all so lovely Mel, my fave is the top sheet, it's a little bit different to the usual vintage sheet don't you think...I think it's the coffee coloured background. I love to check out the oppies on our holidays too. It's a priority in fact!

  8. Holy Sheet! Those must have given you a flutter in the chest. I call it the oppy rush! I do believe those ducks are very similar to some that MMC was eyeing off at t he Paddo Antique Centre. i suspect yours were vastly less expensive!

  13. What a haul! It's always such a rush when you get your hands on the good stuff. I've not been searching that often these days, but haven't found anything in an age.
