Op shopping adventures

Thank you to all the lovely ladies who popped by to see my flea market finds last week. Gosh I look forward to Sunday having a peek at everyones finds. It seems you all adored the comforter...and I adore it as well but because my children have lovely handmade quilts on their bed I just didn't know if I really needed it. And thought maybe..I should have left it someone else to discover. Anyway, I am feeling reassured and it's a keeper:) and I love Lyndel's suggestion of using it for tea parties.

This week I had a lovely time fossicking through a container of buttons and choosing this little collection for 20cents.

This adorable little beaded purse-Marly, I am sure you had one one of these as a child. And the dotty fabric it's laying on-about a metre of fabric for .50c Happy.

Some lovely vintage sheets were also spied...

A couple of days after my op shopping adventure, my big girl started a new dance class-right across from an op shop. Oh my! I know how I'll be spending my 45 minutes while she is hip hopping away each Thursday afternoon. I picked up some blue floral and this pretty pink sheet.

Just as I was ready to go I lifted a bundle of thin, worn flannelette sheets and hiding right at the bottom was this bright floral number. Perfect! It's lovely and soft, in great condition. Yay!

For more flea market finds, visit Sophie!

You did pick up some pretty buttons too, and at a bargain price :)

oh oh - weekly dance class across the way from an oppie? That is gonna be a serious temptation - still weekly visits mean you will get to know the ladies who work there and a little schmoozing with the op shop gals never goes astray ...!

I used to have one of those purses!!! Sadly at the tender age of about 6 I enjoyed picking the little beads off the purse. Glad you found one still beaded!

Lots of us thrifters were able to find some great button bags this weekend. I just love finding a zip block full of little works of button art.
