Thrifting lately...

A bit of a mixed bag of late...

We spent a few days away this week and I picked up a lovely dictionary and bingo set for $1.00 each while visiting Beechworth. Also a couple of pillowcases to add to the mix of  preloved quilting fabrics, 50c each.




This little apron was found at the local Salvo's, just $1.00. I love it's bold colour and print.


Stool, $6.00 This is after a good sanding and it's also had a coat of white paint-photo coming soon.


And some gorgeous Johnson cups, a couple thrifted and a few gifted. 



This last one is quite possibly my favourite design yet!

For more thrifted goodness, pop by here.

That first Johnson pattern is the one from our everyday dinner set growing up. I always hated it LOL. It's so funny to see it on blogs. It's growing on me again.

I love the apron! What a shame you can't make it into a skirt!

Today I broke three Johnson Bros dinner plates (one of them the same as your first t.cup) Actually the washing machine did. We are currently using our laundry as a kitchen, I had them stacked on the machine awaiting a wash in the laundry trough and SMASH! It was the vibration of the spin cycle that did it. I didn't cry, but swore instead.
