Op SHop Showing Off

Thank you for all the lovely comments on Iris's party!
I love doing parties, and I love the challenge of doing them cheaply!
(Yes, I generally throw my own style on them, slightly kitsch, colourful, simple and with lots of love!
 I don't go for straight lines and I don't like a very contrived -looking style..)

Thanks also for the kind comments in general on my blog - I't's very kind ! And still amazing that there are worldwide readers visiting daily! Thanks.. So much.

Here are some Op Shopped items from last week..

Lovely colours.

Brand new eco bottle.. $1
40+year old towelling dressing gown.. in great nick! How do they last so well? 
Hasn't let itself go at all. LOL

I was stoked to find these trees at the dump op shop = perfect for Iris's party!

Mirror with scalloped edge for $2.50..
(all those babies are exactly 3months in those photos! cuteness!)

hand towels
chiffon scarves

$1 blanket/lightweight duvet,doona,quilt.

1978 Alphie, in working condition (see his lights on!) $2 from the dump shop.
He's actually quite annoying.

Happy days indeed! I love seeing what you find in your op shops, Linda. Especially liking the towelling dressing gown, the quilt and those fab trees for Iris' party!
Blogging is an amazing way to "meet" people you couldn't possibly stumble across in any other way. It never ceases to surprise me that anyone reads mine! xxxx
