Was able to go treasure hunting with way less pain today and am so glad I did,
Off I went with mummy and daughter Laura to opshop #1 where we found these cute earings for $2 a pair and they are sterling silver Laura dear was so happy as she wears silver all the time.
GSon got a great game with Bob the Builder (like the old trouble game ) and is loving playing with it at the moment.
Then to Lifeline I got this gorgeous horse book end which due to being knocked in the car got its horsehoe its leaning on broken made me sad but I have great glue.
And the plate which is part of a cake stand and was made in Germany.Has Bavaria (then some writing where the hole for rod used to be)then a lion print then says Schumann Germany written on the back with number 18 there also, have googled cant find one the same.Not usually something I would be totally attracted to but was only $1.
The doll ,the mug with ship (all above) Oh and all these earings and 2 necklaces.
Scored well so far?
Decided to drive past my previously flooded opshop just in case it was open and it was Yay.Sadly its still got lots of work to get it back to normal and it wasnt full like it used to be but Laura dear scored some great books as she always does,lots were Readers Digest ones.She is a sci fi or a facts, mysteries of the world and natural therapy book lover.(no pics sorry she took them home)
I bought another vintage scarf little donkey tapestry (it was 50c and just cute see above pic) Hey wait a minute I think I mostly bought books for Laura lol lucky I loves her so much.
Later was this beaded necklace (photoed in shape of heart for my young friend at Eleven of Hearts ) its really heavy and made of some type of stones? Laura said I should make bracelets and she wants one and it was only $1 so why not,
Other bits were crafty things for the GDs I just cant resist buying sewing or scrapbooking bits and pieces for the kids.(no pics sorry )
But this was one of my great finds.A small set of office draws aint it cute?Shall I store buttons, jewellery or what in it? Oh the dilema Think its lovely anyway.Bet you do too.
I forgot to add the below pics from Monday (maybe coz I couldnt think due to pain) but this wedding pic was sitting there and I had to rescue it.I am forever saddened to see family pics thrown away.Even if there was no
direct family surely someone would love them especially if they dabble in geneology like I do.So they are my adopted aunt and uncle havnt named them yet tho lol.Even Laura liked the dress and she is not into frills etc.
I also forgot to show my little old dolls and more nose wipers and some more Notebook magazines (was so excited as they are ones I havnt got) all from my Mad Monday finds.
Now last but not least remember that Marilyn Monroe I missed out on the other day (no didnt get it But) the fella that bought it in was there,He had it on the wall of his art studio for years and donated it to the opshop its an Andy Warhol print too.Anyhoo he has a James Dean print he is bringing on on Monday for me to look at and see if I want it 1st yay (he also has another Marylin and I hope if he decides to sell he remembers me).He told me to take some pics of Marylin and if I cant get good ones we can get it taken to the print and copy shop and see if they can do one for me or maybe have 5 seperate prints done? He was awesome and his lovely wife said she would take some good pics (she is a photographer) and will email to me woo hoo.But in the meantime here are some pics of MM to drool over and you can see why I was dissapointed.
Anyway thats it for me happy hunting everyone hope you all find something that makes you smile.
