Cool STuff

Don't hate me.
But I got some ACE stuff at the op shops last week.

All this stuff is from my locals.
(5 x-roads Red Cross, Sallies, Hospice)
My favourite.

It was waiting behind the counter , having just arrived... so I nabbed it!!
Timing is everything!


These must be coasters I guess. But I think they'll go in stockings this Christmas, just to play with.
Too cute.


Cake tin. Obvs.

Cake boards. 20c each.
If anyone local wants some - there are loads more! (well on Friday there was!)
I once went to buy one of these and just about died at how costly they were!. I just use plates usually.
But now I'm gonna be all proper and flash!
These are probz from the 5 x-roads cake kitchen place that recently closed down..

Joining the rank of plastic canisters on the bathroom shelves.
Love the gold.

Another dog tin..
Two in one week.

Cute stripes on the sides.
HAPPY DAYS!!

First day of Spring - time for a Spring Clean!

That deer ornament is AMAZING.. Such an awesome find. I have been searching for a deer for a long time but sadly have never found one as yet.

Hoi stephanie here from chums/kindy.. now how DId i find this blog? oh yeah, looking for an actual photo of ashurst park as we may do a daddy-has-the-car we'll hang out near-his-work crazy plan for a day tomorrow. But I fear this blog may rob my sleep, make me jealous and possibly embolden me to actually wear some of those 'finds' in my wardrobe. You know my hubby hid some clothes in the roof area saying 'they look like your grandmothers'" and I said 'they WERE my grandmothers, that's why I've got them'... I wore the quality tartan wool skirt quite a few times, but so frumpy if worn with anything other than high boots. but the electric blue silk suit was really just 'cos I think she wore it to our wedding and I just didn't want to see it go to the op shop.
