granny hangers and other stuff - oppy finds

I'm sitting at my dining table, enjoying the dappled afternoon sun. The windows are open and the breeze is carrying in the smell of a barbecue dinner from somewhere, maybe being cooked by one of my neighbors... The smell is making me hungry and bringing back memories of my long Australia Day weekend. Its the perfect end to a busy day of domestic chores.

I hit up a few op-shops on my way home from Perth yesterday. Once again I managed to find a car load of thrifted goodness. That is two weeks in a row!!  New crockery, fabric, nick-knacks and all manner of vintagey delights were piled high on my dining table.  Today was a perfect day to dust off my shelves, do a spot of re-arranging and find new homes for my lovelies.  In amongst the cleaning we made cupcakes, napped, drank tea and watched a movie. It wasn't far off from domestic bliss....

I was surprised to turn on the TV after a weekend of Australia day celebrations to learn about the Queensland flooding. My heart and thoughts go out to all of those affected. Please keep safe and look after each other. I will be looking at auctioning a dress for the purpose of fundraising in the near future. If anyone knows of a good fundraising host please let me know.
