HOLIDAYS/ THRIFT REPORT

Fabric bought at my local a couple of days ago. 

The tag said '3 pieces' but there was only one - bummer!
But $2 and  quite large, so yay!

So the kids are now on holiday.
YAY!!

I really love it, despite the obvious mayhem, busy-ness and 24/7 aspects..

We went to Cambridge today (half hour drive-ish) 
to go to the op shops see a few christmassy displays and stuff..

THey happen to have one of my all-time favourite oppies there..
The Union Parish.

GOLD, I tell you!!!
(THis photo is actually taken one day when it was closed)



ACTUALLY pickings were uncharacteristically slim. (or rummaging was tricky with 5 kids?)
But I got a couple of things.
And spent $6.


Needs a clean, but I LOVE the base


I love these old albums. This one will go nicely with my others..

Dolly hand bag (free) I want one in my size. 

MORE! Love the old decos.


Conjoined Clauses.
Obligatory linen.

I tried to add in here some supermarket photos (thrilling, I know!)
but having trouble doing that.. So maybe I'll do (*gasp* shock horror**) another post tomorrow!

I know you will surely die with excitement and antica-




pation.

I so know that op shop, across the road from the pet shop?? Haven't been to good old Cambridge for some time now but usually have a good time when there. LOVE the antique shops and the home furnishing places. They are my look only places!! Enjoy the school holidays.

The conjoined Clauses are the best decoration i'd've ever seen!! I love them. Weird old decorations are the best. And I love the bins, that teddy bear print is too nice to sit under rubbish
