Thrifting Treasures

Hurray! I'm back from the pink eye interlude, thanks for the well wishes from the previous post. Now I have pulled a muscle in my back...it never rains but pours it seems.

Below are the few bits and bobs I picked up over the last week or two at the op shop and YMCA sale. Some will be heading to my etsy store. I am also thinking of having a vintage garage/yard sale when the weather improves, maybe at the end of August, although I tend to give things away for free or a bundle for $1. Our sheds are still full, so this may be the way to go.

Have a safe and enjoyable long weekend. I can hear the traffic humming by, half of Canberra must be heading to the coast to escape the cold weather. Enjoy!

Wish I could come to your "yard sale". That's the only trouble with collecting & rescuing stuff..you just have to have flow out again too!! Really like your swan. Don't know why I have quite a thing about swans..just love them. I have been looking out for metal "frogs" for my Anna, she is doing a weaving course & they use them to prepare the flax. Found a goodie at the Sallies this week. Amazing how soothing the old heat packs can be eh..hope they've done the trick & you're strarting to feel more comfy..at least you can see where you're going now! Much love Catherine x
