Apart from what I have below, I bought a few vintage dresses and a skirt. One of these days I might even join you Frock on a Friday girls - maybe!!
Tooled leather handbag in excellent condition.
Vintage, black and white and good nick all over!
Vintage aprons, $1.50 each. The closest one is my favourite by far. The one in the middle has a tear which I didn't notice in the shop. Don't you hate that!!
This Pyrex pie dish was more than I would normally pay ($6) but it was in such great condition and the colour is so bright and cheery I just couldn't leave it there.
These shoes are all new, the prices ranged from 60c to $1.50 (the pink ones were $6). The sock reef shoe things were perfect at the beach as it was what Master M calls 'a rock beach'. Rock beaches are his favourite as he enjoys catapulting rocks into the sea and looking for crabs. Little Miss was getting rub marks on her feet from her thongs (flip flops), so these were perfect.
Terrible photo (it was getting dark) but two of the three dresses I picked up for Little Miss, $3 and $1.50. I also picked up a red dress with tags still on for $1.50 but it may clash with her red hair!
Why is blogger turning my pics sideways? Grr. Anyway, I picked up this vintage sheet set and
this curtain and
a set of Holly Hobby sheets. I recently sold a Holly sheet that I had considered hanging onto (I was very proud of myself for parting with it). This one pictured is going to be harder to give up as I had this set as a child so they have sentimental value (I wuv them). I think I need to watch another episode of 'Hoarders' for therapy, that always makes me want to have a big clean out. :) Oh that and I am saving for the Melbourne shopping trip and I need more money than I thought I would. I was aiming for $600 but I forgot all about the airfare and hotel room. Eeek!
Linking in with Her Library Adventures
The holiday that was:
Dad and his little girl.
Beautiful sunsets everynight, sigh. Wish I was sitting there with a drink right now...
The first day of holidays was perfect. We walked and biked it to the shop for an ice cream, we went swimming, Mr M and Master M went fishing while Little Miss was sleeping and I went for a beautiful long walk on dusk. The second day it was 37 degrees so we decided we would go for a drive to the nearby towns (once it was too hot for the beach). I did visit some op shops that day (evidence above). The next day it was 39 degrees so after a morning paddle and treasure hut among the rocks it was time to hide away in our cabin. Was a bit of a shame but nice to spend some time together. Master M calls the cabin 'her house' and we have no idea why. He named it that last time we stayed, he was two years old at the time and never forgot about it (I was pregnant with Little Miss at the time). That night we went to the local pub for dinner and unfortunately a few hours later I became sick and that was it fo me for the rest of the trip. Doh! Still Mr M got some more fishing in and took the kids to the beach. Some great memories were made.
Have a great weekend!
