Recent acquisitions

Apart from Te Kuiti, I've found the best op shops in Paihiatua in the Wairarapa. SO GOOD!

I adore this kitsch letter rack thing.

Four x Johnson cereal bowls = $1.50

ANOTHER table cloth etc

This dress was from a new op shop in Hamilton - which is brilliant. Very cheap and packed full o' stuff!

Another new 'NAna dress" 

Canister. Love

Tin tray.. to add to my collection.

I love these old photo frames. All my old aunties had them on their walls when we were kids. 

Make up/ toiletries travelling bag..

Another pair of these shoes (you might have seen them in a previous post)
I LOVE them so they'll be good when the other pair have had it.

I seem to be getting a bit of a collection of donkey planters.. I must put little  plants in them and see if they survive!

Good price for 4 crown lynn plates..

Happy Days despite my aching hands and swollen feet!

Somewhere in between 3 and 5 weeks to go before number 5 arrives!
Just starting to panic quietly about getting everything sorted!

We are having SUCH a glorious Autumn!

LInking up to Her Library Adventures and maybe Apron Thrift Girl if I can!

Oh what fabulous treasures!!! The Crown lyn plates bring back memories, that was the family dinner set when I was little.
I am so excited that you only have a few weeks to go before a new wee poppet comes into the world.
You are looking so beautiful.

You always find such great things.
That letter holder is pretty cool.
I like vintage donkeys too. *hahaah* I only have one planter though... I am sure in the future I will come across more.
