Op shopping treasures

Hello Everyone,
Opshopping on Saturday was so much fun. I experienced a real high in one shop where I got all these precious things:
a small and romantic art deco vase, a gorgeous glass cake stand (I literally run to it when I saw it, a move that has made me feel rather shameful since...but then again...I do love it and it only cost $3!!), and a cool fruit bowl with a spiralling scallop shell motif. And those beautiful retro thread spools with the most amazing thread colours: deep purple, orange, strong yellow, emerald green, soft pinks. To die for. I can't even craft with them, they are so beautiful (pity!).
And thank you to Sophie for giving us the opportunity to show off our little finds each week here. It's so much fun!
Have a great week xx
