Op-Shopping

Well so much for sewing today, maybe later tonight. I went op-shopping instead.



This is everything, a heap of vintage pillow cases which I intend to use for patchwork. I was inspired to do this after spotting the complete yumminess over at at The Vintage Sheet.



This badge has to be one of my favourite things I came home with. It's not vintage but it's oh so cute. I should have for more than one, I can just tell there will be fights over it.



These forks are fantastic, we had one of these when I lived at home, and it was my favourite.



A china mug cause I hate stonewear. But with 3 kidletts crockery is always being chipped and broken. There are a few buttons in a jar and a pink cashmere sweater that hopefully will find a new life as something for one of mygirls.

There is lots of other lovlies hiding in there. I think some of them might find their way into an envelope for meet me at mikes exciting envelope project.

Funny how just a tiny glimpse of a part of a thing can bring back a flood of buried memories. My Nana and Pa used to have that cutlery set...

Nice op-shop haul :) Thanks for visiting my blog and for commenting and for following too! I get insanely excited whenever I get a comment, haha. I'm very new to the blogging world too but it's lots of fun. And I find so much inspiration from all of the other crafty people out there.
