I found the most beautiful

Vintage clothes at an opshop Id never been to but it was teh best one ever.I just grabbed dresses and tops and skirts and didnt look at the prices (I did see $75 for fur coats tho, at an oppy? a tad too high) But what I got was beaded dresses from the 20s and some gorgeous floral 50s dresses a knitted one from the 30s -I think and some with gorgeous embroidery plus many, many  more .The ladies at the oppy couldnt believe how many I was getting and how happy I was buying old things.I knew without checking the sizes that some wouldnt fit but I also knew that a few would so how could I resist buying them all?
I felt kinda greedy with the armload I had but then went back for more.I decided it didnt matter the cost I was going to have them anyway.
Finally I got to the checkout (and even met a lady who wanted to make lace outfits like me and gave her my ph number so we could do some sewing together.) was just about to get the total when I heard hubby yelling at the kids and knew Id better hurry.
But too late I didnt get the total I didnt get any pictures and I didnt get the clothes home

Coz .....

I woke up didnt I??Damn!!True Story happened this morning.

Oh you bloody tease! Beats my dream this morning, my mum was here and I knew I'd have to spend the whole day on my feet mopping, scrubbing, cleaning the skirting boards just so she wouldn't think I was a bad mother (which she already does). Thank god it was a dream. xo

Oh no! I've had exactly this happen to me before. I guess the best op-shops really are in our dreams. :(
