Op shopping

Last week I had a 'break' from op shopping. It was a kind of test of sorts. G caught a bit of the show 'Hoarders' recently and he's certain I am heading that way. I'm not worried though:)

Soo this week I was back thrifting and brought home a very cheery green sheet-my new favourite I think. It's in lovely condition but it's 50% cotton and  50% polyester. I thought it might make a nice quilt back. What do you think? I'm just not sure about the mix. Could I use it or not???

I also found this little piece of glass for a dollar. There is always room for another storage jar. It's looking after some favourite buttons at the moment.

And last but not least, I picked up this lovely chair at the Salvo's. A great price at $6.00!

I called in for a cuppa with my parents on the way home and my lovely dad set to work pulling off the fabric and the gazillion staples that were holding it FIRMLY in place. Thanks Pa! You're the best! or as my big girl would say, 'You Rock'!
Stay tuned for it's makeover:)

Great Sheet Lea, I would use it for a quilt backing. Can't wait to see what you do with the chair.

Just love the vintage sheet - I would use it for a quilt back for sure. The poly cooton mixes back then seemed of better quality than nowadays.

I adore the colours in that sheet Lea....I imagine anything you do with it would be just gorgeous.
That chair is going to look just beautiful once its had its makeover too Lea.
