sweet charity - my latest op-shop finds!!







Today I met up with a lovely new friend in Busselton for a yummy late lunch.  While I was in town I hit up my favourite local op-shops. The thing about op-shopping is that you never know what will turn up. You have to look regularly despite occasionally coming home empty handed. It can be disheartening, going weeks, sometimes even months, without having a good score. You have to keep your eyes open and your mind positive. Today I was lucky!! Today I struck gold! A lovely stack of vintage linen at bargain prices. All now soaking in the washing machine ready to hang out tomorrow. Hooray!

I was EXTRA lucky today as I was gifted a bag FULL of granny hangers from my stellar lunch buddy. Thanks so much miss Sarah, you really know the way to a girls heart :)

All in all it was quite a wonderful day. Lots of sewing, yummy food, good company, a bit of shopping... It actually doesn't get much better, methinks.

Happy Wednesday!!

  2. It's such a good feeling when you have a day like that - and those hangers - they even coordinate perfectly with your fabric! Lovely x Jane

  3. Wow, that fabric haul is to die for! Lucky you! Sometimes the barren visits can either make you feel like a big find is just around the corner or make you despair that all the good items have already been found. I think it depends on my frame of mind. :)
