Grab a tissue

not for the tears tho for the drool you will dribble when you see my new treasures,but maybe you will cry too lol

My 2nd Lois Shabner print.From the tip shop.Once owned by Dr Angel ( he had it framed at some time in the past)

 She has some tearing at top right so I took her off her board to have reframed.
 4 pairs gloves
 a Sanchez Ukelele (kids learn this at school)
 Cute letter holder from 70s/80s

 Glass knobs for a project.
 Vintage christening gown and bib

 Crafty books at Vinnies book sale
 and just when I thought I wouldnt find another movie book

 with some gorgeous pics in side.

 a cute square port
 a funky dress by Theris of Melbourne
The Captain  said to keep this one.

and this yellow vintage (tag removed grrr) made from what I think is "Helga" fabric (crimpolene)The Captain  said to sell this one lol.

Did you drool?I would have if it wasnt mine.Hey who am I kidding I drooled lol


Oh I also got a little 2 step  wooden step ladder at the tip shop too.(still in the car)

What a beautiful print, she is gorgeous.
I love the colours in the first dress you had on, I think it would also look hot altered into a mini.

I sure didn't get past the Lois Shabner print without grabbing the drool rag. Omigosh how gorgeous. I don't know that I've ever seen her work before but it is simply stunning. I think this may be a double-drool post today. Need to ask a question. Keeping in mind I'm from the other side of the world, please don't think me too dumb but I don't know what a "tip" shop is, and also I've figured out that an "op" shop is probably a thrift store, what does the "op" stand for?

Great finds Nelly! Love the christening gown & the gloves and isn't it funny to see Lucy as a glamor girl, and well, all of it!

You are like a magnet for fab finds! I love the print - reminds me so much of what people often had on their walls when I was a child (giving my age away)... The patterned dress is great and I love the little case and the glass knobs! Lucky you!

The Ukelele is so cute *PiNeApPlEs*
I have the matching trinket box to your letter holder.
The glass knobs are gorgeous!
Christening gown precious!
Fantastic pictures in your new movie book find.
Love the square port =D
You look so good in that funky dress.

I think the yellow one is cute. (What's the Captain talking about?! *lol*)

You might need Sarah to beat him into liking yellow. *Eaaak*
