Treasure hunting

I've discovered some lovely treasures the past few weeks.
I am always on the hunt for pryex and milkglass and rarely find these items in my local oppies.

I was a very happy girl when  I spotted both. I may have even let out a little gasp.

Milkglass far left $3
I even cleaned up 'the messy bench' as it is affectionately known at our place and wiped down the shelving to make way for it.

Pyrex bowls $10 for both



This cute cotton bed throw was picked up a while ago at the handmade markets. The seller was having a destash!  $1.00 Yes you heard right!
It makes a nice bright change to Lulu's usual pastel room.


This $5 pyrex jug has been getting a tonne of use.


 And finally my absolute favourite piece of thrifty goodness...


This was stuffed in a box of junk. I was on my way out when I stopped and had a quick rummage through. What a lovely and lucky find. Just $1.00

I am so thrilled to be joining in with the 'op shop show off' over at Max's place.

Oh Leah, I do love that tray. Who knew a blue rose could be so beautiful. Are you going to use it as a tray or hang it somewhere? Just goes to show you never know what treaure you're going to find in a box of junk...
