Op shopping adventure

I stayed in my jami's all day yesterday. Bliss! It's nice to have a jami day now and then, I think. We had a shuffle around of some furniture and I had a massive clean up in my craft room. There is much more to do! But I popped some of my thrifted storage containers on the desk for a little show and tell. These have been collected from local op shops over the recent months and range in price from 50cents to $3.00-a bit of a mish mash but all very useful in my crafty space.

I also recently picked up this typewriter for $5.00. I ummed and ahhhed over this. Did we need it??!!
I can't believe I gave it a second thought. The children love it and I have used it to type on some shipping tags.

As for this weeks haul-only one little pillow case...50c well spent tho'.
Playing along with Sophie's Flea Market Finds.

Mum said "oh those are Alicia's old sheets that I just gave back to her! Much more faded than the pillowcase tho!". Love the typewriter - I'm still looking for one. I just got a beauuuuutiful vintage one tho. It doesn't work - I just bought it for the keys!

Ohhh Lea....a jammies day is just lovely.....we all need them occasionally....usually that means Ill get a visitor I haven't seen in yonks....and I spend their entire visit making excuses for why I'm still in my jammies.
