Well with school holidays in full swing, there hasn't been much time for thrifting. I did manage to steal a few child free hours and felt it was my civic duty to attend one of my old favourite op shops that closed down for almost a year after the city floods in January 2011. The flood went nearly 2 metres through the whole warehouse and it has taken this long to get up and running again. Even though I have no idea how to knit, I could not leave this lovely cluster of pearlescent knitting needles behind. Heck, last year I didn't know how to crochet, so this seems like a vaguely justifiable purchase.
Never been a huge fan of tapestries before, the ones I remember seeing in my childhood were horrid (those 80's have a lot to answer for), but these much older ones are so lovely. And only $2 each.
That sage green in the floral is one of my favourite colours. I was excited to find these buttons in the same colour as well as this lovely little box for $1- I love sewing bits and bobs.
But my find of the week, this oh so wonderful little dolly cot. Even though we have a little one already, that I have been painting and making bedding for. It was just so pink and cute, I could not leave it behind. Can I also add that miss Liongirl does have a LOT of babies and 4 babies in the one cot is probably breaching all dolly safe sleeping codes.
And finally, thank you all for your many kind words on my last blog post. I feel so fortunate to have this wonderful bloggy family out there who love and appreciate op shopping, crafting, colour, gardening, house renovating and all the other small details of life. You bring so much colour to my day.
Linking in with Sophie for more treats.
