Mind you at 22 (23 on Jan 26th My Aus.Day Baby) she is a late opshopping bloomer.I had the grandkids with the opping bug at a much earlier age.Well better late than never, least she loves it now and today (yesterday as I am posting late) was no exception even tho a book find for her didnt happen till late in the day and at the last opshop we went to.But she scored well as the book was on all different types of natural remedies (she is dabbling with doing a naturopathy/chinese medicine course) she also bought a gorgeous chinese style robe,a chinese wishing jar,2 more (very cheap wine glasses for candles) a pandora look necklace (very pretty) and a few other bits
She fell in love with this chinese robe.Lady at opshop knows me and bought it out to show me.Laura said mine mine.(well not really lol) She loves it.Pink inside and embroidered.,
And lastly her wishing jar.Very chinesey
And here are my finds
So these are todays (yesterdays by the time I post this (1st day opping in a week so needed a good strong fix)
Lotsa goodies.Pussy Cat ring holder I couldnt resist 20c Cute bird looks like a 70s one?
Irene at Re-vintaged she makes such beautiful things and I LOVE her cushions.You must follow her posts.
Little indian doll is an oldie and was so cute and only 50c how could I say no?The Jug is cute even tho I am a green lover not a yellow I just fell for this was only $1 too.Stamped on bottom with Dianna and some other writing my old eyes cant decipher.Found a blue Dianna jug at an antique site.May have to do more research. 2 cute treasure boxes one is ceramic. I will put them away for the GDs for another time
this will give you a better idea .And the middle plate stand was all of $2 I love people who dont try and mark things up too high.
Speaking of magazines did everyone else love The Notebook mag. before it folded?I found a heap at an opshop then found out we wont be able to get any more so am trying to find the whole collection so sad was a great read.R.I.P Notebook.
Ok we are nearly there got this plant today at the Tender centre for $4 and the planter for $1 at Lifeline (where I find lotsa goodies) While at tender centre I bid on some vintage costume jewellery and a shell heart box will update on my win or loss later.The glassware here I got from the Dump, hang on I didnt scavenge I went to what they call the trash and treasure (silly me I shoulda taken a picture) was more like junk and throw up.Needs a womans know how and touch to get those lads organised what a lot of garbage that should have gone to the tip.Anyway both peices have been cleaned well and dishwashed hard.Candle holders maybe? I have a heap of soya wax to use,
Well thats it for today Lots and lots of pics and ramblings I hope someone stayed till the end lol.Hope you had great finds too dont forget to let me know.Till next time Happy Hunting xx
