Treasure hunting

I've been meaning to post a few bits and pieces I have picked up 'around the traps'.

Firstly, this coffee sack was purchased from the swap meet. Just $5.00
My better half is a big coffee connoisseeur so I had him in mind when I spotted this. I am thinking a big cushion on back our verandah where he drinks he morning coffee. Might be a bit scratchy?! Do you think?

This pretty teatowel was discovered at some handmade markets. I bought it from a lovely stall filled with beautiful vintage linens (no wonder the oppies are bare). It was well worth the $10.00 to me. I love the colours and it's in mint condition.

This beautiful picture was inherited from Nanna Belle-the Mr's grandma. It will make it's way into a Christmas display of some sort, I think.

And last but by no means least, a much needed lemon squeeze.
(Marleen, I know you wanted one of these ages ago. I think you may have found one but if not, this one is your okay?!)

Love cheeky face above the sack. Could you do one side of the cushion tea towel that way he could turn it round to lean on and it would not be scratchy? mel x

Gosh the coffee sack is huge.
Yes not sure about the scratchy issue. I guess give it a try sitting up against it before cutting into it witn the scissors.
And the tea towel, wow, one of the prettiest I've seen.
