Happy Days

 Today was a day when it really felt like Spring is on its way...
Beautiful sun.

Here are some recent finds...

You know I love me some kitsch glass flower action.

HOw come this hadn't been snaffled up for $2?
Perfect for a certain 4 year old's fairy forest party coming up... saves me a couple hours behind the sewing machine!

Too pretty for just holding pots! This is going on a skirt or top..

Not exactly eye candy, but a good demo of why you should go to the op shops if you need something, instead of buying a crappy new thing for a whole lot more!
For the wall in one of the boys' rooms

Best cotton is old cotton!

Cute bag with a different kind of handle situation.. interesting!
To add to my swizzle stick collection. 

Cute bunting..

Happy Days!

And by the way, that follow thing on the right-hand side still works . They said it wouldn't, but it does..

Linking up @ Op Shop Show-off

Loads of good stuff on offer at our oppies and most are even having sales. I got some good scores today, it is a pity I didn't bump into you.

Lots of treasure hunted down. The patchwork will look awesome on a shirt or skirt. Great idea!

Ohhh, love those brushes. I look forward to opping some more when I return to NZ in January ( it will be my 7th visit)

Which is your favourite Hamilton Op Shop?

So much goodness!
Is it weird that I especially love the one square among all the bunting triangles?
All my cottons are thrifted too! Happy days indeed! xxxx

My Mum used to have a bag just like that one! It was in the dress-ups for a while. Wonder what happened to it...

Quite partial to the pink floral background. Is that a sheet, tablecloth, curtain, blanket, or something else altogether? Loving the bunting. Has part of a crew that "sewed" bunting for all the shops in Featherston for the Worl Cup (Georgia was our Country), but when they found out I was useless at sewing, was relegated to being the tea lady. That's ok, I can make a mean cuppa!
