Great finds!
One of my op shop dreams is to find someone's sticker collection. I so regret getting rid of mine.

Well, where to start...?! The sewing box is seriously cool, I would have bought it without a hint of hesitation had I seen it in a shop. My kids have the same set of animal bowling pins and they cost me a fortune. Mmmm... Great toy. But really, really, what caught my eye is the crochet cushion cover. The reason being, i'm crocheting two blankets for my boys (hopefully finished tomorrow) and it's taken me ages and quite a bit of money. Now that I know how much work is involved in making a crochet cushion or blanket, when I see one in an opshop, I buy it. They are precious. Great necklace btw. xxx

Great sewing box and love the cushion cover. My crochet leaves a lot to be desired. I make holes held together with yarn.

Also, thank you for your comments on my blog about the tv trays. It's been a great topic of conversation in our home. I definitely need more to use as proper tv dinner trays!! You said you have many. I would love to see them, based on my two, I think they are lovely. I wonder what yours are like. Would you be able to take photos of them and show them on your blog by any chance?? xx

That tablecloth would make a fabulous skirt, wouldn't it? Far too groovy to be used for it's original purpose.
That white plastic basket looks like the one's we used back in the 1980's, I haven't seen one for years. xxx

A very nice sewing box. I might go to the thrift shop today, where I saw some last week and resisted to buy one. :-)
