I'm Gonna Steal your Grandma's Style

I went to a 40th party last night. 
I wore one of the Nana dresses from the dump shop the other week..
Tres comfy. Tres affordable. (LOL)




On my way I dropped in to the local 4-Square for supplies. (a small supermarket)
I love the old wallpaper that was revealed when they took some shelves away.
 Imagine when the whole wall was like that!. 

I am an Old Wallpaper enthusiast, as you may know! 
That would have been shopping in style, with a whole wall like that!
That supermarket has been there since I was a kid, but I can't remember seeing the wallpaper...


I got quite a few comments saying y'all love seeing my scores (thanks) so that's all the encouragement I need! 
I love seeing what everyone else buys too... LOVE it.

These few things are from last week at the oppies..

#New plastic fantastic bling.


#Knitting needle basket. Also good for storage of other things..

#Another cute little donkey planter. I might be getting quite a collection of these..



The Garage Sales yesterday were awesome.
When I get a chance to photograph my scores I will.

Happy Days!

(Still waiting for a moment to get to your blogs/commenting.. All this garage saleing/partying - time consuming!. Oh, and parenting/ cooking/ tidying up blah blah of course!!!) 
 Linking up @ my usual haunt - Thriftasaurus (Sir-Thrift-a-Lot) with all the other world-wide treasure hunters!

I love your dress - I smiled when I read it was from the dump shop :-) I love red white and blue and stripes. It looks a bit like an Osti to me, my favourites. I have developed a "thing" from those woven baskets like your knitting needle basket - problem is that most op shops around here have big "display only" signs on them Grrr. How is your friend's daughter that had the accident? Is she recovering okay? I have been trying to get books off my 11yo but she keeps re-reading them.

You're looking so glamouricious here darling!!!! And yes, one of your haul fans is right over here! I remember making those baskets with the plastic tubing at school in the 70s. I lived in Wellsford. I always wonder about these vase-like containers - I have a few too and I thought they were for flowers but most of them are such odd shapes - so I'm going to take a tip from you and use them as planters for cacti and succulents in future. I'm so sorry I haven't replied to your email, I have been thinking about the wee lassie so much and Bella and I have been getting a few bits and bobs together for her. Party on!!! xoxoxo

Hey blue eyes you look very hot with your hair all swept up on top! Hope you had a good night out, well Im sure you would have. Those knitting holders are brilliant, I have one I use when I get round to knitting.

Add my voice to those who said they love seeing your op shopping/garage sale-ing scores. I'm always amazed by the sheer number of awesome things you find. You look fabulous in your frock and heels.

I love the little donkey planter, Sarah Misfit has a bit of a collection of them too with cacti in them. They look so cute.

I like the look of your supermarket! xxx
