A mixed bag of treasures collected over the past few weeks...
Couldn't pass up this beautiful old tin, the red rose having a special place in my heart. $3.00

Blue floral tablecloth, badly stained, looking forward to cutting into it. $1.00
Vintage floral pillowcase to throw in the mix. 50c
Checked shirt-perfect cushion back. $1.50
Floral sheet $1.00

Fabric scraps $2.00, SO happy to find some great boy prints!

Doilies 50c each

A little box of blank cards-yep more roses! $2.00

Cute little embroidery chosen by Lulu.  Lulu asked so beautifully 'please may we buy these bunnies mummy?' What's a girl to do! $3.00 well spent, I think.

Pattern $1.00...wish me luck. I am terrible at reading patterns.

And something I've been searching for...a little glass vase, just the perfect size for watching a hyacinth bulb grow. And a steal at $2.00

Have you been op shopping lately?
Have you picked up anything fun?
Gosh when I looked over my finds here, I can see a bit of my Nonna. 

How I love Sunday evenings!!!
I am off to make a cup of tea in a favourite cup and check out what everyone else has been thrifting.
Linking in with Sophie and gang over here.

Loving all that fabric, but those vintage boy prints are amazing! I haven't come across anything like that before!

I love that orange and brown 70's looking "boy" fabric Lea. I also love your sweet little girl's earnest (and extremely well-mannered) request. It would've been impossible to say no.
I also love Hyacinths, I wonder what colour your's will be.
I'm glad I'm not the only one out there who struggles with patterns, headache inducing for me.
You know what you've got Lea? Nonna chic x

Love that vintage tin!

Zara said...

Lovely thrifted finds Lea. I'm on the lookout for pretty tins to use in the craftroom.

The floral sheet would make a lovely dress! Lulu's tapestry is so cute. :)

I tried growing a hyacinth like that once and it was a total flop. But mum grew one at the same time and it was a huge success. I hope you have mum's success and not my flop!

Love all your fabrics and the skirt from last post turned out beautifully. I too am complete rubbish at patterns, I find it easier to try and work it out myself than wade through those complicated instructions. melx
